IELTS Reading and IELTS Listening Band Scores.

reader-310398_1509cp9AxocEI always advise my students to do practice IELTS tests at home so that they have an idea of what to expect when they actually sit the IELTS test.

Every reading or listening paper has 40 questions and each question is worth one point.

The list of marks to IELTS band scores below gives you an idea of your IELTS level.

Now, please note that the ‘marks to band scores’ list is based on an *average of various test papers.

*You must be very careful with IELTS band score calculators. Although all test materials are pretested, there are sometimes small differences in the difficulty level of tests.  As a result, the number of correct answers needed to get a particular band score is based on how difficult a particular test paper is.  Hence the reason why I use the word ‘average’.

Here’s to the best IELTS score possible!
