IELTS Listening: capital letters and plurals

IELTS Listening: capital letters and plurals



Here are two common questions about the IELTS listening test:

  1. Is it acceptable to use lower case instead of upper case e.g. “central station” when the answer is “Central Station”?
  2. Will you lose marks if you miss the “s” when the answer should be plural?

Here are my answers:

  1. Using lower case is fine, so “central station” would be correct. You can even write everything in capital letters if you want.
  2. Missing the “s” is sometimes acceptable and sometimes not. It’s notacceptable when the grammar requires a plural e.g. “the journey takes three hour” would be wrong. Some answers can be singular or plural. Check the context of the question and the sentence grammar carefully.
