Got a test after a week and I have been practising a lot of listening tests from IELTS 1-7 books? by cambridge. One astonishingly discrimination that I found in the selection of topic for section 4, academic lecture, is that the topic is taken from subjects like Humanities, Sociologies, Fine Arts, Literature, Archaeology etc. Topics from Engineering or Theoretical Physics have never given in Section 4. Why is this utter discrimination?

My background is from Engineering. Any physics, maths or engineering topic, I can chew like a chewing gum. But in IELTS, only topic from the subjects of Humanities fields are chosen, which seem to be difficult for a student of engineering/Physics/Math. I can bet on it that humanities student, be him extremely good at English, would get less than 7.0 in listening, if the section 4 contains? Engineering/Physics/Maths lecture topic.

I would conclude my long speech with one statement : Listening in Section 4 is not only looking for facts in a lecture topic, but you have to feel comfortable with? the topic. Evidences are showing that IELTS is paving the way to get higher listening score for the students of Humanities, Sociologies and Fine Arts by selecting topics of section 4 related to those subjects.

What I intended to say is that the lecture topic of section 4 is never taken? from physics/math/engineering. They shouldn't be only picking the topics from humanities, sociology, business etc. In my test it was related to sociology. Yet I managed to score 7.5.
