  • Don’t open the question paper until the examiner directs you to do so.
  • Write your name and candidate number on the top of the page.
  • There will be 4 parts in the listening test and each test will be unique. So you need to listen to the instructions of each part carefully.
  • Do not skip any of the questions. Try to answer all.
  • You can write the answer on the question paper while listening to the audio.
  • Use a pencil while writing the answer on the question paper.

Practice Listening at Home

You can practise the IELTS listening exercises at the comfort of your home. In order to do this, you need to focus on certain things like:

Finding out the skills needed for listening

Predicting skill

The examiner will ask you to read the question before playing the audio. While practicing at home, you need to do the same and you should be able to predict the audio content by looking at the question.

Understand the synonyms and paraphrasing

Sometimes the words used in audio may not be the same as that of the question and the paraphrasing may also be difficult to comprehend. So, you should listen carefully to write the correct answer.

Should understand different slangs

Native speaker’s English will be quite difficult to understand. But you will be able to overcome this by watching recommended English movies and listening to English Songs. Wide exposure to such English will facilitate a better understanding of the audios played in the actual test.

Recognize the signposting

It is not possible to fully concentrate on the audio that is played. Native speakers too will not be able to do this. To practice this, you have to listen to the lectures and when you hear some difficult words in the audio you can pause and find out the meaning of the same.

Listening to two people speaking

When two people speak there will always be one person agreeing and another person disagreeing. You need to find out whether there are two people in the conversation and empathize with one person and try to understand the conversation.

Taking the notes

You need to listen to the lectures and make the notes as the lecture goes on. Everybody has their own way of notes-making, so it is up to you to take meaningful notes. After you note down everything, check for the correctness of the spellings.

How to Review your IELTS Listening Practice Test?

There are some points through which you can review the listening practice you have taken. They are as follows:

  • Whether you have completed your listening test in a complete cognition.
  • You need to identify questions that you found difficult while practicing the listening test.
  • Know your mistakes and try to analyze them.
  • You also need to identify areas where the mistakes occur.
  • Find the weakest areas and try to overcome them.
  • Repeat the process until you get your desired score.
