Can I get at least 5.5 band in my speaking test?

I know it’s very difficult to judge me but can you tell me from your experience, what chance (on scale 0-10) that I can get at least 5.5 band in my speaking test.

What I did on my examination day:

- I was confident.
- I did not use any filler words (like: aaa, hmm, umm).
- I tried to elaborate my answers.
- I spoke for 2 minutes and I never stopped during my test.
- My pronunciation and vocab were good.

But I repeated some words 2 to 3 times. In one or two questions I was less cohesive but what I fear most is I did grammar mistakes during my test may be a lot and examiner wrote down (6-7 times max) something in his notebook. He was strict.

This was my first attempt and I have no idea how I performed please help me. Thank you!!

Getting 5.5
by: IELTS buddy

Hi surbhi,

I understand your desire to know your score but it really is impossible to say how you may have done without hearing your test.

If you did talk at length with coherency that could be a 6, and if your pronunciation was good, that too could be 6.

That would mean if your grammar was a bit weak and you got 5s for grammar and vocabulary then you would still get 5.5.

But really you are judging your own skills and that is difficult to do.

You really just need to wait for your result.

regarding speaking band score

Today was my speaking test and I spoke not well in my cue card, but I spoke part 1 and part 3 well.
As well as I had eye contact and I never hesitate during my speaking.

So according to you what bands my examiner give in it?

It's impossible to predict that without hearing your whole speaking test. You are graded on many criteria.
