wow....Jst finished mine in Benin...did all tests today....

d speaking part was kinda funny tho coz I didn't prepare ...d first part was on shopping, advertisement so it was pretty cool... d cue card part was 'I shld describe any experience I've had in traffic...and of course part 3 was all on traffic matters...

d writing essay was on d 'current and future effects d of ever-increasing population of children below 15 in some countries. (paraphrased tho) a bit tricky I must say..

If I were you, I'll just relax cos they always get in touch. However, you can be proactive and contact them via email. Dont even bother calling BC, that number doesnt work

Well the first place to start would be IELTS' own practice materials like stepo707 said. However, I have since found IELTSbuddy.com to be an invaluable site for last minute preparation. I found the writing practices there very useful.

Hello, I've tried but didn't get any useful info. Are these the numbers you called? 01-4603090-9. Have you tried going to their office in Ilorin or the venue where you had your speaking test? I'm sure you'll find someone to address your issue there. Let me know what's up.

Amen. seriously, i dont believ an international body like british council can act in that awkward way. I sent several mails to there official email address (approx 1/day), call there official office nos, they asked me to drop my messages; but all my method got no feedback, not even a text mesage from them. 1 of my brother went there 2de to complained about my case. he was given a mail by an attendant and asked to tell me to complain and forward my data via the email. To cut it short, i got a call few minute after i sent the mail. to my surprise, i got a mail just 3 minutes after our conversations that my test has been transfered to 30th. instantly, the date of exam in my candidate area was updated to 30th. i was just wondering, if they are't aware of the implication of there inadequate info. they failed to pass info via any means for days, when they are able to call, send e-chat and upgrade status within 10minute

For writing I used a pencil for Task 1 but I realized I was slow with it and time wasn't on my side, so I used a biro for task 2.

Caveat: With a biro, please get a draft of your ideas before writing. You can only write directly on the provided sheet if you're confident that you would make minimal mistakes or have thoroughly rehearsed. Success!!

I'd advice you leave your phone at home so you can have rest of mind except it's not an expensive one. As for the clock, there is but you wouldn't even need to look at it cos you'd be bent on beating time and the examiners would be announcing it for you sef. lol
