Hi Helen,

Thats great news about your marks must be such a relief. We can't go to Oz until my eldest daughter finishes her 'A' Levels which will be Sept '11, so thats why i'm in no rush yet to re-take so thought i would try appealing against my mark first. I think i lost marks because i didn't use paragraphs. But will let you know.
Thanks for the offer, may need your expertise for my next sitting if they don't upgrade.
Again, well done hope all goes to plan for you now!

Hi Helen,

My scores were:
listening 9
reading 7.5
speaking 8
BUT writing 6.5
so i've got the form to have my writing re-marked as i only need 0.5 points more so hopefully they'll find it!!

If not then i'll have to re-sit. It takes bout 6wks for the re-mark results.

Well done to you at least now its all done x

Hi! Haven't done alot of prep yet been busy with work and study days!! My friend and I are sitting it the same day so we're sharing prep books. I'm doing some today, tomorrow and Monday, then she's having the books to squeeze some swatting inbetween work til Saturday. Dreading it!! At least now you've been through it once you know what to expect!! Do you fancy Saudi Arabia then???? I couldn't, but then i've never been so I suppose it's wrong to say!!

Good Luck with the test again!!
Let us know how you get on.
