Frequently Asked Questions

To score well in the listening section, what accent should I practice listening to?

You should listen to various accents before appearing for the test. There are no instances of emphasis on a particular accent.

Is it enough if I listen only to the practice tests?

If your test is fast approaching, you can concentrate only on the practice tests. But if you have time, you have to listen to some general audio and video such as news, recommended movies and television series.

Will I be given a second chance to listen to the recording (just in case I have any doubts)?

No. The recording will be played only once.

Is there negative marking in the listening test?

No. So attempt all of them.

While writing the answers for the listening test, does spelling matter?

Yes. It matters. Answers with incorrect spellings will be marked as wrong answers.
