What do the band scores mean?
There is no pass or fail mark in the IELTS test. The marks, or bands, that a student receives show their ability to use and understand English. However, it is up to each university and college to decide what bands will be acceptable for entry into each course. This will usually depend on the language requirements for the course, that is, how difficult is the level of language that students are required to use and understand in each course.
The advantages of the IELTS test
The IELTS test is very comprehensive. It rates a student’s ability to use English in the four major language skill areas: Readin& Writin& Listening and Speaking. Each module contains a variety of question types, and all of them are designed to simulate the language tasks that are needed in real-life academic and training situations.
Thus the scores that a student achieves in the IELTS test will give the student and the institution to which they have applied a clear idea of the student’s ability to use English and whether their language skills are strong enough for them to study their desired course, or to fit more easily into the English-speaking community.
