IELTS Listening answer sheet

The IELTS Exam is a test of all the four language skills, i.e. the ability to listen, read, write and speak in English.

The first part is the Listening Test, where you’ll have to listen to 4 recordings and then answer the questions asked. There’ll be a total of 40 different questions, with 10 questions in each section. These audio recordings will be in the form of monologues or conversations between two or more people. This is to test your ability to understand and grasp information and follow the development of ideas. The recordings will be of native English speakers.

The IELTS Listening recording audio will last for 30 minutes. So these 30 minutes are for listening to the audio and writing your answers on the question paper. After which those attempting the test via paper-based will be given an extra 10 minutes to transfer their answers to the answer sheet. While those attempting the test via computer-based will be given an extra of 2 minutes to review their answers.

The Listening section is one of the easiest sections to boost your band score. You can download the IELTS exam answer sheet for Listening section from this website.

Different Sections of the Listening answer sheet

Make sure to fill up the form using a pencil. The context for the Listening test answer sheet is given below

  • Starting from the top, at first, you’ll have to enter your centre number. The centre number could include letters as well as numbers in it. After writing the centre number code, the examiner may ask you to write your city name next to it. For example – MD850 Madrid ( MD850 the centre number code, while Madrid is the city).
  • The next step would be to write your full name in capital letters (as is in your passport). Make sure to write it clearly.
  • After that, you’ll have to fill in your candidate number. The number will be given to you at the test centre.
  • You’ll have to write the date – with the date, month and year,  by shading the given number boxes.
  • After filling in all your basic information, you’ll see the two columns, numbered from 1 – 40, where there’ll be space to write your answers next to each number. Make sure to write down the answers with a dark and sharpened pencil.
  • For each answer, write them in the extreme left of the answer box, near the serial number, and not from the centre of the box.
  • There is a section in the answer column with the title, ‘Marker use only’ avoid writing anything in that section, as it’s meant only for the examiner.
  • You’ll also notice four boxes below the answer column, and even those are meant for the examiners only, so avoid writing anything in there as well.
