From British Council:

From 4 January 2020, some small changes were introduced to the instructions and layout of the paper-based Listening test: The word ‘Sections’ was changed to ‘Parts’ – The paper-based test is now divided into Part 1, 2, 3, 4. The Part 1 example was removed which is definitely the change test takers should watch out for. They will hear the instructions and then jump straight into their first question. Ensure that if you are using earlier material in class or for learners' self-study, that they are aware of this change.
