Who corrects Listening & Speaking answers?

Post by antsatno » Mon May 29, 2017 3:33 pm

Hi ,

Does computer corrects the answer sheet of listening and reading? I'm asking this because my handwriting isn't really great, so I'm little worried if a system evaluates.

Also I remember the exam invigilator told that only system corrects so we need to write clearly. However, I just need answers here from the examiners.

Thanks a ton.

Hi Antsatno,

Your answer sheet in the listening and reading sections is scanned by a computer so you should make an effort to write clearly and concisely. Practice improving your handwriting to make sure it can be read clearly. You will have some time at the end of the exam to copy your answers to the answer sheet so make sure you take your time when doing this and focus on neat writing. It doesn't have to be perfect but clear enough for the examiner to read.

The speaking exam is marked by a human examiner from the UK.

I hope this answers your question, if there is anything else I can help with then please let me know.

Thanks for the response. So after computer gives scores for both listening and reading will there be another check by a person?

The computer marks the exams but there are checks afterwards by humans for quality.
