Marking The Practice Tests

Listening and Reading

The Answer Keys are on pages 118–125. Each question in the Listening and Reading tests is worth one mark.

  • For questions where the answers are letters or Roman numerals, you should write only the exact number of answers required. For example, if the answer is a single letter or numeral you should write only one answer. If you have written more letters or numerals than required, the answer will be marked wrong.
  • Answers may be written in upper or lower case.
  • Words in brackets are optional – they are correct, but not necessary.
  • Alternative answers are separated by a slash (/).
  • If you are asked to write an answer using a certain number of words and/or (a) number(s), you will be penalized if you exceed this. For example, if a question specifies an answer using NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS and the correct answer is ‘black leather coat’, the answer ‘coat of black leather’ is incorrect.
  • In questions where you are expected to complete a gap, you should only transfer the necessary missing word(s) onto the answer sheet. For example, to complete ‘in the …’, where the correct answer is ‘morning’, the answer ‘in the morning’ would be incorrect.
  • All answers require correct spelling (including words in brackets).
  • Both US and UK spelling are acceptable and are included in the Answer Key.
  • All standard alternatives for numbers, dates, and currencies are acceptable.
  • All standard abbreviations are acceptable.
  • You will find additional notes about individual answers in the Answer Key. Writing sample answers are on pages 126–135. It is not possible for you to give yourself a mark for the Writing tasks. We have provided sample answers (written by candidates), showing their score and the examiner’s comments. These sample answers will give you an insight into what is required for the Writing test.

The Practice Tests have been checked to ensure that they are of approximately the same level of difficulty as the real IELTS test. However, we cannot guarantee that your score in the Practice Tests will be reflected in the real IELTS test. Practice Tests can only give you an idea of your possible future performance, and show you the areas on which you should improve on.
