IELTS, a latter day dictation test?
Sat 6th November 2010
Many international students have bid goodbye to friends in farewell meetings and send off parties with their dreams of staying in Australia dashed off by new immigration regulations implemented July this year.
Even for students who graduated in Australia already, the prospect for applying for visas and stay for further 18 months has been rendered useless as many students fail repetitively in the pre-requirements to pass a second International English Language Test System or IELTS when in fact the students already took IELTS testing before they even enrolled and started their school courses in Australia. These remind many of the dreaded White Australia ‘dictation test’ which restricted immigrants many years ago.
