I got overall score 7.
Listening 7, reading 7.5, writing 6 (~_~), speaking 7.
The night before the exam, I cannot sleep!!! Nervous syndrome.
When I first entered the room, my heart beat so fast (dag dig dug), my back ache also (encok keknya), but listening section was pretty good (I realized one mistake after I went home, I wrote writen instead of written!!! argh..)
Reading, good enough, 1st passage about food (seaweed, agar, etc), I love food, so I really enjoyed it. 3rd passage a little bit confusing (always, 1st passage is the easiest, 2nd is intermediate, 3rd is hard).
Writing, hm... my teacher said that I should use some sophisticated words (not common daily words). I have used it quite a lot, use amend instead of improve, interact (communicate), etc. Actually on the last day, I used word web thesaurus to find the synonyms of some simple words and choose a new words (sophisticated one) lol. But still, I only got 6 in this section. I am not very good at writing, last semester, in my academic writing class I got only B+ (while my friends got A or A-
Speaking. My partner was a slim, tall, old Australian lady. She reminds me of Aunt Petunia in Harry Potter movie, and she is so kind and funny.
We talked about food (again), and historical places.
The conversation is recorded and she or other corrector can realize more mistakes from me!!!! I think I talked too fast and *ceplas ceplos*. No need time to think, just said whatever across my brain at that time. But I got 7. Happyy..
overall, I satisfied enough with my result.
Wish a good luck for those who are going to take the test soon.
