What aspects of listening are tested in the Cambridge English: First Listening test?
You will be tested on your understanding of gist, main points, detail and specific information, and your ability to deduce meaning. You will listen to monologues and interacting speakers from a variety of sources.
How many times will I hear each recording?
You will hear each recording twice.
How do I record my answers?
You must write all your answers on a separate answer sheet. You may write on the question paper as you listen, but you must transfer your answers to the answer sheet. You will have 5 minutes at the end of the test to do this.
How many marks is the Cambridge English: First Listening test worth?
Reading, Writing, Listening, Use of English and Speaking are each worth 20% of the total score for the Cambridge English: First exam.
Does it matter if I make spelling mistakes?
At Cambridge English: First level, minor spelling mistakes are not penalised, but your intention must be clear. You will not be asked to spell words which are above Cambridge English: First level. However, where a word has been spelled out letter-by-letter, e.g. a proper name, and where this would actually be a test of your ability to follow the spelling, the spelling must be correct.
Am I supposed to write the words I hear on the recording in answers to Part 2, or do I get more marks if I use my own words?
You should try to use the actual words you hear on the CD. You do not get more marks for using your own words.
