I vaguely remember someone here was working for IELTS (like the IBP or the British Council or what’s-his-face) or something and I hope they read this.
I took the exam yesterday, for the 2nd time (because these rip-offs want everyone to take their test every other year), in the morning, and I was not pleased with some of the practices, such as:
Explain to me why in the fuck are water bottles with words written or patterns designed on them not allowed. Like you actually believe people can cheat by having a few meaningless characters or drawings on their water fucking bottles? Seriously?
Explain to me why in the fuck are examinees required to check in again if they go to pee. I understand being metal monitored again after going to the toilet, but checking in again? Like you suspect people would switch their faces during their piss? Seriously?
Explain to me how in the fuck did the price go up from like 5500 to 7000 in like 3 years. For a test result that’s only valid for 2 or 3 fucking years, don’t you find that a little fucking unreasonable? Shouldn’t there be a rule for those who’ve achieved overall band score >8 to keep their test result for like 10 years? Or better, FOREVER. It’s not like anyone’s gonna forget how to speak English.
Or just explain to me why every IELTS person is so fucking uptight. Compare to DELF you guys are like one of those neurotic caricatures from Woody Allen movies.
