who checks IELTS reading and listening papers?

 

listening and reading markingI have been asked several times the questions that who actually checks reading and listening exam papers. Some people think they are checked by computer while others think human examiners.

They are basically checked by local people in actual center. As you see answer sheet for every reading and listening test in Cambridge book, in the same way actual exam answers are provided to local checkers. They check by ticking question right and wrong in appropriate boxes. In last when all questions are checked , they are entered  to computer recorded in order to generate band-score.

 

The reason trained examiners don’t check them is because they don’t require special attention. The paper is made in such a way in which answers are in the boxes. Examiners check writing and speaking as they need to be looked into detail. Examiners check certain areas in writing skills and speaking skills.

    I took ielts exam on the 20th of september 2014 ,infact the listening aspect was rubbish because nearly everybody in the centre were complaining that this is just waist of money because we couldn’t hear it clearly & also there was traffic along the road side of the centre to the extent that the sound of horn of some vehicle were disturbing us.Ibadan centre along Bodija,oyo state.Pls let there be improvement on this matter

      Well, i don’t think so. If they feel there had been problem, they would have sorted it out. I would say the management was not following right procedures as in such case they should not arrange that venue.

      If there are many complains about that venue, they might change in future. So i would suggest to make a complain.

    IF SOME BODY HAVE A LESS RESULT IN ONLY ONE FACTOR LIKE READING OR SPEAKING SO HE/SHE IS PERMITED TO GIVE A SINGLE EXAM.
    AND IT SINGLE EXAM IS VALID.
    IT IS NOT REQUIRE TO GIVE WHOLE EXAM.
