Everyone is asking: “ What’s the IELTS Indicator Test?”. Although a few articles exist about the test, we spoke to Maria who recently took the Indicator test and found out what to expect.
In this tutorial, we speak to Maria who recently took the IELTS Indicator test.
- Listen to the full interview with Maria to find out:
- What to expect when you take the test
- What makes you eligible to take the IELTS Indicator Test
- Why she decided to take the test
Like many students, Maria had a test booked for April but it was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
She took the IELTS Indicator test to not delay her college application. After booking, paying and doing the test, Maria got the scores she needed for her college application and is off to Canada!
Maria previously took the general IELTS exam three times and this time she had to take the academic test. She found it strange to type out her essays as she had done the hand written exam before.
The speaking section of the exam took place over Zoom and it followed the same format as the normal IELTS exam. Maria felt at ease during the Indicator Test because she was at home.
This is part of the reason she got her desired IELTS scores of 8.5 for listening, 6 for writing, 7 for reading and 7.5 for speaking.
Maria suggests that students who can take the IELTS indicator test should benefit from the lower cost and the convenience of taking it from home.
