Anyone had IELTS re-evaluation and band increase?

Hi Everyone,

One week ago, I wrote my IELTS exam and I am unsatisfied with my writing band score. I received a 5.5 Band, whereas I at least expected a 7.

After self introspecting, I believe in the Writing task 2, I went off topic and wrote mainly about "how a manager can be a good leader" (inspired by Simon Sinek speech) instead of "If you agree to the statement, A manager can be warm and friendly".

Due to the low score, I am unable to apply for my PR and thinking of reevaluating my writing exam and it costs $185 (CAD). I need a minimum of band 6 to apply for PR in Canada.

Do you guys have any previous experience where you reevaluated and your score increased after this?

Thanks everyone for your inputs.

Did you score at least a Band 7.5 in either the reading, speaking or listening test? If so, don’t bother with a remark as one will have already been undertaken before issue of results.
