I heard some changes have come up in the test format. Is it true? If yes, what changes have been introduced recently?

We recently went through multiple experiments with feedbacks and were really impressed to see the success rate and the quality services our faculty members are providing despite a major change which has been introduced in the pattern of this test.

Originally the test used to be conducted in a fixed sequence which always initiated from Listening flowed by Reading and commencement used to occur with the mind blowing Writing module since it needs a lot of ideas and a good presentation for good score. Apart from this, the speaking test used to be conducted in face to face manner that too on a separately scheduled day for giving the comfort to the test taker.

Wherein, the latest test pattern has been introduced recently in the month of July 2022, which sidelines the original approach completely and the beginning of the exam now is done with writing module. According to the experts of the industry, this change has brought a major revolution into the teaching approach and students may suffer in the conceding modules owing to a high time effort which is required for generating good ideas in the 2 tasks associated with this part, on the contrary student views are certainly different in this relation and are joyous to perform these tasks with a fresh mind.

Reading test will be conducted after this as per the latest guidelines that have been introduced and effective presently. Taking into consideration the toughness of this module, an ease of access has been provided by mineralizing the reading length in the first section of reading module and introducing fillup and short answer based questions. But a noteworthy decision related to the third section of reading has been taken and the passage has been kept in a trickier manner keeping in mind the increasing burden on testing authorities and reducing opportunities due to increased strictness by the immigration and migration departments of almost every country post COVID backlog.

At last of the complete process, Listening will be given the place which has not been modified in any term other than the sequence change for the overall test. However, the speaking module has been upgraded with a newer technology and video conferencing has been given a preference rather than bringing the examiner in a physical manner with an aim of saving time and travel cost at most of the locations where CBT version of the exam is available.
