IELTS Score Scale

In an IELTS examination, the scores are given in terms of the band. The band ranges between 0 to 9 (0 implies that the test taker has not attempted the question, whereas 9 shows that he is an expert).

The higher your IELTS score, the higher are your chances of passing the test. But, the qualifying passing score entirely depends on the requirements of the institution, office, immigration body, or university for which you are applying. However, 6 is the minimum competent score accepted at almost all places.

Components of an IELTS Exam Pattern

The total time allotted to complete an IELTS examination is 2 hours and 45 minutes. A test taker has to attempt four components in the given time frame that are listed below:

Reading- A test taker has to answer 40 questions in this section. This section tests the reading skills of non-native English speakers.
Writing - 2 writing tasks are to be completed in this section. For task 1, you have to explain a table, chart, graph, or diagram given in the question paper in your own words. And for task 2, a test taker needs to write an essay on a given problem, point of view, or argument.
Speaking - This section will expose a test taker to a live interview recorded for later assessment. There are three parts to this section. In part 1, students have to answer questions related to current affairs, their preferences, or hobbies. In part 2, students discuss the topics mentioned in their booklets (an applicant has only one minute of preparation time). More in-depth questions are discussed in part 3, in continuation to the topic of part 2.
Listening - Includes four sections having ten questions each. Recorded passages are played only once, and a test taker writes answers based on listening skills.
