Hi guys, sorry for the late response. I guess that you've already find out what the assessment is at this time. Btw, yes, in the end it was easier than I expected. They e-mailed me saying that I had to do a further assessment and that I could do that online. It was easier than IELTS, but not just because it is an easy test. I think that the point with that is to clearly assess if your english capabilities are enough for you to interact in an academic environment. So it is easy only if you are used to study in english. To me, it was much better doing this test than stiching to all the IELTS rules and procedures, also because you can do it at your own pace.In the end, they removed my english condition I am still waiting for the confirmation of admission, though. I guess that they are being pretty busy in these days reading all the documents etc..

Hi all, I am also in the similar situation. Had an offer from JBS and my condition is 7.0 in all parts and 7.5 for overall.

I have taken IELTS for multiple times already.
1st time: L 8.0, R 8.0, W 6.5, S 7.0 = overall 7.5
2nd time: L 8.5, R 8.5, W 7.0, S 6.0 = overall 7.5 (This time I kinda had anxiety attack during speaking test so I ****ed up apparently)
3rd time: L 8.5, R 9.0, W 6.5, S 7.0 = overall 8.0

I'm so frustrated that my scores keep fluctuated...argh and it consumed so much time and money to take each one
Anyone experienced similar situation? Do they accept score from multiple sittings?
Hey I just received the same scores as you did have on your last test. How did it work out for you in the end? (also have a cond. offer from JBS )

I got a 7.0 band score on my last test and I'm honestly wondering if any recognizing organizations would accept my results and it's really nerve-racking

That's the thing, different organisations have different requirements on the IELTS. I highly recommend http://geniustuition.uk/IELTS.html for anyone who wants free IELTS resources, as well as the option to sit a full mock exam online with the tutor, who gives personalised feedback on each answer so you can see where you're at before sitting the real thing.

Hi guys, I just received my IELTS scores and I got an overall band of 7.5. L:8.5 , R:7.0, W:7.0 and S.6.5. What should I do? I'm just missing the minimum for 0,5 on my speaking. I've already received a conditional offer and my interview with the Professors went really really well. Is there any chance I can take the language assessment test, provided by the University?

Hi!

Yes, it consisted of all parts, speaking part is optional so the language centre should contact you when it would be needed.

It is totally different in comparison to IELTS. There was a piece of lecture on Cambridge history as a part of listening which needed to be summarised. Then reading about critical thinking which also needed to be summed up. As writing part I had to describe my English abilities and write why I chose my course. If you would have any other questions, you can PM me ;-) Sorry for such a mess but Im using my phone in hurry :-D

Don't worry too much. I had 6.5 in writing and 6.0 in speaking and was still fine after the language centre assessment.

For me this assessment was easier than IELTS because it was closer to what I actually do in my studies. You don't have a time limit but should aim to take no longer than three hours (for the reading/listening/writing bit). You can replay the recorded lecture as many times as you want and can read the text as many times as you want as well. I don't think there is really much you need to prepare for. Especially the writing bit was easier for me since you have to describe your motivation for your chosen course etc rather than discussing a random statement as in IELTS.
