Understanding your result
There’s no pass or fail in IELTS. Rather, all test results are reported on a clear 9-band scale (from 1, the lowest, to 9, the highest). You will receive an overall band score, as well as individual scores for each test component – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.
Disappointed with your result?
If you did not achieve the score you need it is important that you pause and take the time to think about how you can improve your English before you take the test again. For example, perhaps you could consider taking an English Language Course or an IELTS Preparation Courses where the teacher will be able to support you and provide feedback to help you improve.
