Hi I'm sitting at Leeds, and really worrying about it~ trying to look at all angles, you tube for tips as well as the cambridge books!..I hope i pass after all this!, I haven't applied for the skills assessments until I pass this...don't want to fork out too much unnecessarily!!! If i pass then I will set the wheels in motion!
Mines in York, I have to pass have the Cambridge book and another one ,apps for my phone you name it I am doing it, my life has been taken over by it lol
On the reading if I am doubt I am applying the answer not given seems to be working I am also trying not to over read into the question!!! X
Yep, that sounds familiar! just trying to practice the writing at the moment...the graphs seem straight forward~ interpreting information, but the task 2 is another matter.I'm trying to work with the plan~1)paraphrase the question, 2) overview of noticable features,3) 2 paragraphs of specific features or info,4) conclusion, hopefully this will be 250 words!!!
Your doing the academic one then, I am doing the general one :)
I need the points too for my visa, do you live in leeds? :)
not far from leeds. looking at your profile you've done the process the other way round to me~ getting the visa first then doing the ielts....when i spoke to the migration agents they suggested that i do the ielts first cos we didn't know what would happen on 1st july...i have a diploma rather than a degree so i need all the points i can get...as well as my age not being on my side! so looking at the new diac stuff i need at least a 7 to get the points...an 8 would be brill cos there would be no bother then! i think that might be asking too much tho!!!
Have you got a job n house etc lined up for when you go?
we're hoping that if/when we get a visa to take a trip out to do a reccy n acctivate the visa, as i think it will take a while to sell our house! then time isn't too much of an issue!:v_SPIN:
I am in scarborough not too far away from you :)
I haven't got a visa yet (I wish lol)
I had to do TRA for hairdressing got that ok, then put in for SS beat the may cut off then I was 3 weeks in waiting for it and they filled the quota for us :( which was a little bit pants, I now have to go in under the July changes and I now don't have the points hence the IELTS I am just short by 5 measly points!!! I also need a 7 across the board to get me in :)
When I started this back in march I had the points and didn't need IELTS , I kick myself that I didn't start the process sooner but hindsights a wonderful thing that exists to torture us!! Oh well what will be will be eh, now have to wait for the new SMP to be published and then hopefully off we go again unless fate has another nasty trick up it sleeve for me.
Good luck with everything :)
Hiya HeleneHope u r well, I need a bloody 8 to get enough points for my visa but it's doing my head in and the minute. Some days I'm getting the questions all correct then other days I'm just useless lol. Not really worried about the writing or speaking section, just the reading is driving me crazy. Getting confused with the section were it says " information not give and the false section". I'm going to have a drink problem after this because I'm getting so stressed out!! Did you hear from Go Matilda today, I got an email regarding the temporary list and hairdressing is on it but we can't apply, what a nightmare so this means more waiting. Take care Shelly
