Our friends took IELTS in the UK and India and remembered the Reading, Writing and Speaking questions (which were identical in these two countries):

Reading testIELTS test in the UK

Passage 1. About the Chinese language and culture.

Passage 2. A discussion about employment of older and younger people.

Passage 3. A research about animals and their ability to sense natural disasters.

We were given a floor plan of two theaters, in 2003 and after their renovation in 2008. We had to compare and describe the changes.

Writing task 2 (an essay)

Cue Card 2

Unfortunately, no one remembered the rest of the questions.
