      Red face ielts panic

      Thanks for the points you give in your post~ i'm sitting in leeds on 16th july and trying to practice as much as i can...one day i panic about the writing, then the next panic about the reading. I think its just luck on the day!

      First of all, im sorry about your news with the IELTS exam, I also had to do it a second time. Im a teacher and missed out on the reading by 0.5-gutted!! ;o( I thought I was a complete failure, and highly embarrassed being a teacher! Its strange how it seems to be the reading part that throws most people, I also think there is too little time to read such lenghty extracts and answer Q's on the pages overleaf! I sat it at Leeds first time around, but there was such a wait when I needed to re-take it, that I decided to look elsewhere. I ended up getting in alot sooner at Peterborough, and we travelled down the day before and made a bit of a wkend of it. The day I sat the exam, I was much more determined and relaxed, knowing my family were close by, but also thinking, come on girl, dont mess it up this time! I just made sure I read each extract carefully, then when answering the Q's, I underlined where I believed the answers were in the extract, so that I could go back and double check my answers, time permitting. I def think this helped with the time element, as it meant I didn't need to re-read the whole thing to check my answers were correct. Does this make sense? Hope so! Anyway, have you re-booked at the same test centre, or would you consider going elsewhere if they have a sooner slot? P'boro was a fab building, I found Leeds awkward to get to really. Good luck with it all, and dont think your a failure, just be more determined to do it next time around. All the very best,

      Lisa ;o)
