I have presented some facts about the Speaking and Writing papers for the IELTS here.
I will focus in this piece on the Listening paper. It consists of 4 sections and it has 40 questions. For the Listening section 1 there are 10 questions and this will be the topic of this article. You have to listen to a text and fill in some words.
A few tips: look at the heading of the text and read through the notes. Do that before you listen to the text.
Take time to study the gaps a little, and think of possible words or kinds of words to fill in (noun, verb, adjective, pronoun, adverb, preposition). Also pay attention to tenses, phrases, etc..
For example, if there is a gap before a Past Participle (3rd form), you will definitely know that a Perfect Tense is required (to have) or a passive (to be).
Do this carefully because you will be allowed to listen to the recording only once. Also mind the task and read it attentively, paying attention to the key words.
