Knowledge / skills tested: Listening, reading, writing and speaking of the English language. The most challenging aspect for students is usually the listening portion. With hard work and intensive preparation, many students manage to fair well in the writing and speaking sections. However, the listening section poses the greatest problem to their performance as they are unable to keep up with the pace of the interviewers and they are unable to catch the phrases the interviewers use.
