Singapore British Council IELTS Preparation Class
British Council IELTS Preparation – Academic class cost me SGD1670, now this price has rose to SGD1720, the price is much higher than the other training organizations, but I think it’s worth it as the teachers are from UK or Australia, they are all excellent and gave good teaching. My class was every Sunday afternoon 1.30PM to 5.30PM, spanning two and half months.
Although the teachers are the best quality, but I think the best way to prepare the IELTS test is to spending time and take your effort to prepare for it. Below is the group photo of the class.
I registered the exam in November 2016, almost one year after the preparation class, the exam date as:
Writing test 14/01/2017 (Sat) 9.00 a.m. ~ 12.30, test Venue: Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay
Speaking test 14/01/2017 (Sat) p.m., test Venue: British Council
The writing test was held in a hotel and in a big convention hall which was used to holding meeting event, I believe there was approximately 300~400 exam taker sitting there, ball pen, pencil and eraser were provided, the listening test was on the loud speaker, so no earphone was provided.
The speaking test was given in British Council itself, on the 3rd floor. I didn’t do well on the 2nd part of the speaking, hesitated quite a lot, there was scary silence, should have quite a lot deduction on the coherence.
I checked my result online through this link, that was Chinese New Year eve on 27th Jan. 2017, exactly 14 days after sitting the exam.
Received the Test Result Form on 2nd Feb.
I didn’t expect my writing score is so low, luckily the overall score is as I planned for.
Within two months of the written test date, I can request for up to a maximum of five additional TRFs (Test Result Form) to be posted to receiving institutions.
