There is no pass or fail in IELTS. You are aiming for the score required for your purpose in taking the test. Candidates are graded on their performance, using scores from 1- 9 for each part of the test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The results from the four parts then produce an Overall Band Score. This unique 9-band system measures scores in a consistent manner – wherever and whenever the test is taken. It is internationally recognised and understood, giving you a reliable international currency. IELTS scores have a recommended validity period of two years.
Test results are available 13 calendar days after the completion of your test.
*Note that IELTS markers follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored. The testing process has the highest quality control procedures.
Each band corresponds to a level of English competence. All parts of the test and the Overall Band Score can be reported in whole and half bands, eg 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0.
