The oral exam will evaluate your ability to communicate in English. You will have 11–14
minutes to discuss various topics with an IELTS examiner during the test. Your exam will be
held in a quiet room with an examiner who will encourage you to keep talking. Here are some of
the common questions asked during the test:
Q. Where are you from?
I was born in Ernakulam. It’s a city in Kerala which is a state in India.
Q. Is there a lot to do in your hometown for you?
Yes, it is a fantastic city, and there is enough to do there. There are many fantastic restaurants and
bars to choose from if you want to go out at night. If you’re looking for cultural activities, there
are museums and art galleries to visit. If you enjoy nature, though, there are numerous simple
ways to get out of the city.
Q. Describe the nature of people in your city?
They are typically nice, but because everyone is busy in big cities, it may appear that they don’t
want to talk or converse. However, if you stay there, be aware that most humans are inclined to
discuss if they have the time and will aid you if necessary.
If you are a student, these are some answers that will help you.
Q. What are you currently studying?
At university, I study commerce. I started this three-year study two years ago, so I only have one
year remaining. It’s a shame it’s coming to an end because I really enjoy it.
Q. What aspects of your research do you enjoy the most?
We may learn a lot from a business degree, such as how to market your product or how to handle
your company’s accounts, but I’m more interested in learning about how to be a successful
manager. It’s remarkable to think about how much our lives have evolved throughout time. Our
lives are simpler now in some respects, yet the simplicity of the past made people tremendously
happy in others. It’s fascinating to discover all of this.
Q. When you’re through, what do you want to do with your life?
I’m not sure what I’ll do now, but I’m going to teach. That is why I am taking the IELTS and aim
to pursue a master’s degree in management. After I finish it, I’ll surely make a decision.
If you are working, this is how you could answer.
Q. What is your occupation?
I currently work as an office manager for a huge marketing firm. I’ve been working for the past
five years. Typically, I am tasked with assisting a company in increasing sales through various
Q. Do you need to collaborate with others?
Yes, at all times. This is a vast office, and we must all work together to achieve our goals. I have
coworkers who require graphic design assistance, as well as administrative personnel who report
to me. Of course, I must collaborate with the businesses to whom we market. Yes, I definitely
need to collaborate with others.
Q. Do you believe that jobs will evolve in the future?
That’s not what I’m thinking right now, because what I’m doing is working for a great firm that I
adore. Salaries are competitive, and there are additional perks such as year-end and flex-time
bonuses. But, since change is always a good thing, I don’t think I’ll be able to stay there
indefinitely. I am confident that I will change one day.
What do you do in your spare time?
In reality, I participate in a variety of sports. On Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons, I
primarily play soccer with a local team. When I have time, I play tennis and squash, but I don’t
have time to do so every week. I’m working quite hard right now, so I don’t have a lot of spare
Q. Have your pursuits modified since you had been a kid?
It’s not a huge deal. I used to enjoy playing soccer as a kid, and he did as well at school. Of
course, I participated in all of the other activities that children enjoy, such as going on a bike ride
Q. Do you enjoy travelling by train?
If I enjoy anything a lot, On a train, you may sit back and relax, gaze out the window, read, or
work on your laptop; everything is completely comfy. On the bus, it’s more difficult to
accomplish those things because the room is restricted and movement makes you nauseous. In
my country, the sole issue with trains is that they’re frequently delayed.
Q. When was once the remaining time you took a rail journey?
I’m not sure. Let me think about it. It has been a long time. The last thing that comes to mind is a
trip to the north of the country last year to see some friends I hadn’t seen in a long time. That was
the end of it. The voyage took roughly 3 hours, and the trains had to change trains once. The first
train was a little noisy and busy.
Q. Do you have an excellent sense of time management?
I’d even say I’m not very good! I don’t really have a system in place to keep track of stuff. I’m
aware that some people use an electronic organizer or other tool to arrange their activities, but I
don’t. But I always make sure I’m on time for appointments and other obligations, and I follow
through on them.
Q. What techniques do you use to control your time?
As I previously stated, I don’t have any unique time-control techniques. If I have a lot of cases at
work, for example, I evaluate them every day and pick which ones to deal with first. At work, we
have an online diary that I suppose I’ll use, so in that sense, I control my time.
Q. When do you think it’s most important to keep track of your time?
I believe it is when you are at work. Meeting friends, being late for an appointment, or doing
housekeeping does not influence matters too much when you are unemployed, at least not for
you. Missed time limitations or appointments at work, on the other hand, can cause problems if
you don’t manage your time correctly. It’s possible that you’ll lose your job. That is why it is
critical to keep track of your time at work.
Q. What types of novels do you enjoy reading?
I enjoy reading biographies in particular. I’m not sure why, but I find it fascinating to read about
people’s genuine lives, particularly when they have both a happy and a difficult existence. I also
read fiction, but I find it difficult to find a book that I enjoy. I also enjoy reading books about
Q. Do you still read the same books you did when you were a kid?
No, not at all. When he was a kid, he didn’t read much, but what he did read was primarily
fiction, such as fairy tales. Things like lions, witches, and wardrobes come to mind. Things from
the realm of fantasy.
Q. What is the best time to read, in your opinion?
I think it’s OK at any time, but because I like to concentrate while reading, I can’t read for as long
as some people on the bus do. I like to plan ahead of time so that I can enjoy it. So, on weekends,
if I have some free time, I could read for a few hours. Before going to bed, I almost always read;
it truly helps me fall asleep.
Q. You can swim, right?
Yes, I am capable. When I was approximately 7 years old, I started going to school. Swimming
lessons were required in our school, as they are in other schools, I assume.
Q. Are there a lot of swimming spots near you?
The main deck is located in the heart of the city, in a vast sports complex. There are two outside,
but they can only be used in the summer and not during monsoon. In a park, one is quite vast,
while the other is quite modest.
Q. How important is it for someone to learn swimming?
Of course, I believe this is critical. To begin with, you spend the majority of your time in the
water, such as when you go on vacation to the beach, so you won’t be able to have exciting with
your buddies if you cannot swim.. It is also critical for security reasons. This is critical since you
frequently hear about fatal situations involving young children.
