雅思阅读T/F/NG题答案填写不应缩写

  剑桥回信: T,F,NG 不被接受;剑三误导,号召各位雅友投诉剑三出版社有多少雅友因为写了缩写T,F,NG而导致低分的呢?原因都在于自己不小心看题吗? 其实我们这样写是因为用了Cambridge IELTS 3,剑桥考试委员会的考试样书.在该书中,所付答案后清楚写明True/T, False/F,Not Given/NG 同时是正确答案,否则我们也不会偷懒只写缩写.关于这件事,我给剑桥方发了EMAIL,回答表明缩写不被接受.

  我们付了昂贵的考试费用,宝贵的时间和精力,可是却栽在一本书的误道上,我希望各位同受此害的雅友们,投诉剑桥大学考试委员会,外语教学与研究出版社和剑桥大学出版社,必要时付诸法律.

  剑桥回信及我的询问信

  Dear Sir or Madam

  The instructions that candidates must follow are those given in the test itself at the beginning of each set of questions. For example, the instructions for a set of T/F/NG questions are as follows:

  In boxes 1-5 on your answer sheet, write

  TRUE if the statement agrees with the information

  FALSE if the statement contradicts the information

  NOT GIVEN if there is no information on this

  The instructions given in the question paper make it very clear what candidates should write. We recommend that candidates follow the instructions given only.

  Subject: about ielts marking

  Dear University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations,I am writing to inquire about marking for the current ielts. Recently i heard a rumor that to one form of the quetions in the reading tests T,F,NG can not be taken as correct answers to take the place of True, False and Not Given. Is this true?

  It reminds me that there doesn‘t seem to be an official way that candidates can refer to as to what should be considered the standard answer. Currently the only resources are Cambridge IELTS 1, 2,3 and 4 in which there are detailed directions of how the tests are about. However, in Cambridge 3, published in 2004,sample answers for the tests indicate clearly that True/T, False/F and Not Given/NG, Yes/Y,No/N are all acceptible as correct answers. This, although not referred to be official document required to read by candidates, obviously give them a hint that the same situations can be applied to real tests.

  The reason why the rumors as mentioned above came is the publication of Cambridge IELTS 4,in which the sample answers change, and there is no alternative answers as T,F,NG, or Y,N, NG. However, as I said above. There is no indication that Cambridge 4 or any of the above books can be applied to be offical instrctions that candidates must read before taking the tests. As a matter of fact, many candidates as I know are not informed of this book and therefore didn‘t read it or didn‘t notice the slight changes even they did have the book.

  Based on the confusion I have about the tests. there two intentions for writing this letter,firstly, inquiry about whether T,F,NG or Y,N are acceptible answers,and secondly, suggestion that there be an offical direction of the tests upon registration as to what should be taken into consideration .

  I look forward to you reply. Thank you very much for your time.

  Yours sincerely,

  May Liang
