It takes around 40 minutes to do the exam. Each part of the exam lasts about 9 minutes some last longer, some shorter. You will be told when to start looking at each part in the exam.
In addition, before the audio recording s for each part start there will be period of time where you will be given instructions about what you have to do and what you are going to be listening to. For the last three parts, you will also be given some time to start reading the text of the exercise the questions, sentences and answers before the audio recording s starts. Although for all the part of the Listening exam you have to listen to the audio recordings to identify the correct answers for the questions, there are some differences between them.
The first difference is with the questions. For three of the four parts the questions are multiple choice where you are given a list of possible answers and you choose the right one.
For the other part, you have to identify the answers from the audio recording and then write them on the question paper yourself. In addition, for two parts of the exam you will only have to listen to one long audio recording that lasts around 4 minutes , while for the other two parts of the exam you will listen to number of shorter audio recordings For part 1, eight different audio recordings.
While for part 3, five different audio recordings. In the first part you will listen to eight short each lasts around 40 seconds different audio recordings different people are talking in each about different things. For each of the audio recordings there is one multiple choice question with three possible answers. You will hear the audio recording for each of the questions twice the audio recording for question one will be played two times, then the audio recording to question two will then be played twice and so on.
In part 2 you will listen to only one long audio recording it lasts around 4 minutes in which one person is talking. This is the one part of the Listening exam which is not multiple choice. You are given ten different sentences from the audio recording with a gap in each where a word or short phrase of normally two words is missing. You have to identify the missing word or short phrase for each sentence and write it down. Each sentence is talked about in the audio recording in the order you see it.
So the first will be talked about first, then the second will be talked about second and so on. They won't say the sentences as they are written on the question paper in the audio recording the person will use different words to say the same thing. In part 3 you will listen to five short different audio recordings each lasts around 40 seconds. In each, a different person is talking about the same topic e. There is one question that you have to answer for all five of the audio recordings e.
There is a list of eight answers that you can use for all of the audio recordings. In the exam they play each audio recording two times, but unlike part 1, they will play each audio recording before repeating them for the second time so, you'll hear audio recording 1, then 2, then 3, then 4, then 5 and then 1 again and so on. In part 4 you will listen to only one long audio recording it lasts around 4 minutes in which two people are talking in an interview.
There are seven multiple choice questions that you have to answer. In each question there are three possible answers written down. Each question is talked about in the audio recording in the order you see it.
In the audio recordings you hear, they will use different vocabulary to what is written down for the different parts on the question paper. There is one part part 2 which is also testing your ability to both identify grammatical word structure i.
You will get 1 point for each correct answer you get on each of the four parts of the Listening exam. Of the four exams in the FCE exam, the Listening exam is the one that most people get the lowest mark on. This is not because of the level in English used in the audio recordings is very advanced, because it isn't.
