2. Q. How can I tell the time in the IELTS?

4. Q. In the IELTS listening exam, how is it played?

A. I have heard it has been broadcast to the room in some exam centers. I am not sure, if some will issue headsets - at least one student said they found it a bit hard to hear. If you cannot hear clearly in the exam for any reason, immediately contact the examiner and ask them to reseat you etc..
