The listening section of the ISE III (C1 level) Trinity exam has many advantages over its equivalents, but one obstacle in the preparation of this part of the exam is the availability of resources in order to practise it. I would recommend the use of videos on YouTube from ASAP science to be able to judge the level. Try watching the video once and giving a brief summary of what you have seen (without taking notes), then listen again and take notes to answer questions about it. In the exam you will know the question beforehand so it makes the note taking process a lot easier.
