  • Hi, I gave a test of task 1 117 with answers. And I see that there are some mistakes in answers which is wrongly written in the answer sheets like for an example, in section 4 THE LONDON EYE, Ques 31 is clearly said to be MILLENNIUM WHEEL, so I wrote only millennium because wheel is already written there but the answer shows– Millennium River(I don’t know how) same as in Ques 33 it is clearly said 3.5 million and in the answer sheet its written only 5 million.
    can u suggest me that what should I do when I get into this? also can u tell me how many bands I m having if I get marks from 29-39?
