Message 1: IELTS Assessments of English Competency
Date: 06-Jan-2006
From: Maarten Hulselmans <maarten.hulselmansehsal.be>
Subject: IELTS Assessments of English Competency

We found out that some Chinese IELTS test takers obtained a particular 
score but did not meet the corresponding CAN DO standards in real-life

We know the IELTS tests were not forged (can be checked easily through

So we are left with the following question:
How do Chinese students manage to obtain IELTS test scores which do not
match their level of English?
