How can I get 6.5 in IELTS test?

by Memo

I took the IELTS test 6 times. And I always get 4.5 and 5.

It's never grow up !!

My good result was: overall 5 - L 4.5 - R 5.5 - W 5 - S 6.

What should I do to improve my result?!

Getting an IELTS 6.5
by: IELTS buddy


I've had a couple of questions about this, so you are best to look at my replies to those people:

How to get higher than a 4.5

How to get higher than a 5

Getting from a 4.5 / 5 to a 5.5 or 6 is possible with some focused practice (and ideally some teaching if you can get it), but it will likely take time.

Getting to a 6.5 is also possible, but that is a BIG jump from a 4.5 or 5. Unfortunately there is no magic trick to achieve this quickly. It will take a lot of practice.

For example, regarding writing, someone who is getting a 4.5 / 5 is likely making a lot of grammar errors, whereas someone getting up to 6.5 will be making possibly only a few (see this lesson about what is required to be getting a 6.5 / 7 in writing).

As you can imagine, it will take a lot of time to make that change.

I would suggest you don't worry too much about IELTS itself at the moment. You have taken the test a few times, so you know what is in it.

You just need to think about improving your English as much as you can. So just focus on getting involved in English all you can - listening to English radio, TV, speaking it whenever you can, and reading books / magazines in English.

Writing is more difficult as you really need someone to check it, but reading will help with your writing.

Good luck

Personal Advise
by: Anonymous

I took IELTS recently and to my surprise I got a general score of 8. L-8.5 R-7.5 W-8 S-8. My advise to those who are taking it, is to stay focused and familiarize yourself with the techniques on how to answer the questions.

Listening- you should familiarize yourself in capturing the correct answer by using synonyms. They will not directly say the exact word but the same meaning most of the time before or after the correct answer.

Reading- Try to read fast. Most common advise is to read the first paragraph and first sentences of the succeeding paragraphs. But in the test that I took, there was a portion wherein you have to select the title of each paragraph. It will be very useful to at least learn how to scan and possibly fish out the pertinent information on each paragraph.

Writing- Follow the direction. 150/250 or more words should 150/250 or more words. Great marked down are given if it is short.

Speaking- Do not ask the examiner any question, that is their job. Try to speak confidently. Hand gestures while talking if needed. Nod while talking. They do not care if you are making up stories, they are checking on your vocabulary, coherence and maybe pronunciation.

Do not stop practicing!

by: Get 6.5 in IELTS without studying at all

Hello dude
I was just like you but difference was i took IELTS 3 times. I got 2 times 5.5 and finally bam I got 6.5.
So i really want to share you my experience since we have same problem.
I know it is big headache when you get bad score over and over again, however you can do it.
Here is my tips for you.

1. Buy IELTS 8 Answers book practice few times and look at examples and try to memorize it.
But to be honest, i got 6.5 by not studying.

2. Confidence
Do not care what will come in a exam and relax.
It is highly recommended to drink energy drink before exam so that you can fresh your brain.

3. Have a good sleep before exam

These are things i did before exam.
seriously i studied really few times from that book and actually ended up with not understanding anything.

I think you have to improve your English by doing something you like to do.
For me i like to watch tutorials and videos on internet so that i can improve my listening skill.

Secondly i watch foreign reality show and read subtitles, try to understand it without looking at it again. this will help you to improve reading skill.

Do not force yourself to something you do not want and try to make it fun and easy for me.

Good luck dude

The challenging point here is your ability to concentrate on the test. After that you should exercise with plenty of IELTS books. It is not great deal of time! At the end of this period you will get surprised how you have made advances in this matter.
Good luck in advance!

You can get whatever you want If you make an effort incredibly
by: Anonymous

Hey Guys,

Do not give in without doing your best. Any of us can succeed in ielts exam. Just you need to study hard. Don't lose your passion. If your English level low you should study longer naturally. If you think I don't want to study and focus on the exam. You won't make it. You can't get the score you need.

Let me talk about myself. I have good grammar. I am able to understand When I listen to. But I have lack of vocabulary skill. I am start to memorize the most common vocabulary. But I know the thing. It will takes some time.

I need 6.5 Ielts score. I am sure that I will gain it. Maybe I will get 7.0 point. Why not. How people get the 8 or 8.5 score. Are they smarter than me I don't think so. I will be succeed. I was born to make it what I want.

writing and speaking low score
by: dina


I have taken IELTS twice.

in the first attempt I took 5.5 overall and in the second attempt I took 6 in total.

my band scores were
5W and

4.5W relatively.

the thing is my speaking is very good, and since I'm Iranian and living in Kuwait I speak english in my everyday life nd with a good pronunsiation, I dont know where the problem is!

and the other major problem is my writing score that drives me crazyyy! I found it sth impossible to achieve a band 6 in it while I guess my grammar is good enough to get a good score.

I'll glad to hear ur recommendation and thank you:)

Dec 22, 2013
by: Orkhan

I took ielts on end of the November but I got overall 5.5 my score was

Small Help to get 6.5 easily in ielts
by: Deepak

My success beyond Ielts &experience

I got 6.5 in Ielts Academic exam on 09/01/2014. I studied for 10 days before the exam for 4 hours/day from evening 6 pm to 10 pm with a small plan. Plan as follows

• Study thoroughly Ielts 6,7,8,9 band books which are avail in the internet (Download with audio).
• Take 2 days time for each book.
• And then last 2 days go for ROAD TO IELTS which are provided by Ielts website in candidate area.
• Concentrate more on listening because it is very easy to score 30 out of 40 in exams.
• Do listening work by wearing a head phone in peaceful room and evaluate yourself.
• Then go for Writing and read the sample workout (don’t memorise) given at the back of the book.
• After that go for speaking and test yourself by speaking in front of mirror for 5 minutes.
• Now go for reading, it is the tough part of the exam but 1st 13 questions will be easy to solve.
• You may get bored while doing reading test on that time leave the part and close the book.
• When you come back to study don’t go for the same topic which you left. Start with a new one.

Comments always welcome to ( S.Deepak from Madurai, India.

Every one worrying about the exam is not a solution , from my point of view practise is the only thing that will permit you to achieve your goal.To be honest i took the ielts 2 times , in my first time in 2012 i got 5.0.However, two years later i had to sit for my ielts exam , so i could a university in the UK and they asked for ielts 6.5. I practised the ielts until i felt satisfied. And, then i took the exam. When my results was released , i got 6.5 overall with minimum of 5.5.What i want to conclude with that practise makes perfect.

Don't understand the question that came to me in my ielts exams
by: Mohammed

This is the question in task 2

universities students should pay the full cost for their studies because university education benefits individual rather than society as whole

Do u agree or disagree?

I understand the vocabularies in this question but I don't understand the concept or the idea of the question.

Aug 17, 2014
university costs
by: IELTS buddy

Does university just benefit the individual? i.e. they get their degree, get a better job, earn more money etc.

Or does it benefit society? A better educated population may benefit the whole society.

In this question, you are given an opinion from someone who thinks as per the first point. So on this basis, the argument is that they should pay for it, not everybody else through the government (in many countries the government pays for university through taxes.

So it is asking if you agree that the individual must pay for it as it only benefits them. If you disagree you would argue how it benefits society too.

Going up a band in 20 days
by: IELTS buddy

Hi Ratri,

To go up half a band, 6 to 6.5 is possible, but a whole band up to 7 is unlikely.

It's a language test and it takes time to learn and improve in another language.

I needed 7.5 each but got 6.5 in two. This is my third time IELTS test and in the previous two tests I always got 7+ in Speaking and Writing. Do you think I should opt for a re-check? Is it worth?

A few suggestions
by: Hemanth

I wrote IELTS for the first time and here is my score L=8.5, R=9, S=7.5, W=7 and overall=8.

I guess the most important thing to get through IELTS with good grading is to practice as mush as possible. It is always better to identify your strength and weakness and dedicate time accordingly.

Reading is quite simple, you just need to identify certain key words which is quite essential when you are answering big paragraphs. Time management is another key here. Do not waste time in answering questions you are not sure about. First answer the questions you know for sure and then review the rest.

Listening needs attention to details, that is half the battle won. Just concentrate on the questions you are answering and look for a relating key word which more often than not will be the answer. Do not panic even if you don't answer a few questions, there is always a guess work that you can do. It is better if you practice listening to different accents, it will help you a lot. I practiced by using the CD provided by IDP in my car while driving for almost 1 week before the exam.

Writing is all about time management and presentation. As soon as you are asked to write, go through the question properly, understand what you have to write, then make short notes on what you have to write and how you are going to present it. Practice is a must.

These 3 exams will happen in 1 day so, it is always better if you can practice the exams as much as possible.

Speaking test not only involves fluency and vocabulary but also body language and how you carry yourself. Never make speaking like an question answer session, let it be a healthy discussion. Always make sure you answer to the point and elaborate every answer meaningfully. Never contradict yourself if you run out of ideas.

All in all, practice is what makes the exam mush easier.

Good luck!

Practice, practice, practice
by: Gerry foreign teacher

Ladies and gents,

The only way to receive band 6.5 or higher is through practice.

Watch videos on Youtube with or without subtitles, read Academic essays if taking the Academic test.

Writing practice - cover up the conclusion and then write your own from an essay you can find from an IELTS tutor. Once you master the conclusion, move to introduction, once mastered, move to paragraph 4 or 3, finally the entire essay.

You will not only see the vocabulary, but also transitions and grammar that is used.

Reading takes practice. Read the questions and try to understand what they are asking.

Speaking is a combination of what others say. Copy styles from TV or movies.

Believe in yourself
by: Winson

In my opinion, when you are afraid of a subject, you tend to lose confidence in it.

To be honest, I didn't put in much effort before sitting the IELTS exam. Since the speaking test is 2 days before the writing, listening and reading test, I started practising speaking 2 days before my speaking test and sat for the speaking test.
After that, I used another 2 days to prepare for writing test and that's it. I didn't work really hard as in jamming my brain with all that I've read from IELTS book or from websites.

However, I told myself not to nervous and brainwashed myself into believing that I'm good in English(but in fact, I'm not)

I got an overall score of band 8.0, with Reading 9.0,Listening 9.0, Writing 7.0 and Speaking 6.5

My advice is that, you have to believe that you can make it although time seems to be running short. There's not much you can prepare for language examination, unlike Science subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and Physics which have a specific scope. Language is boundary-less!

But I need overall 6.5 and each not less than 6. So, for reading i didn't get my required score. So, Do i need to do IELTS again?

I think it is unfair to do every other subjects again and pay same amount for 2nd time. If IELTS is testing our English knowledge and if we got required level for other subjets, why we should do again all 4 including passed subjects.

Hi all,

I am very worried about my IELTS exam. This is my first time but I am quite concerned about my reading exam more than other parts. last year, I did CAE exam and i didn't pass reading and listening. On the other hand, I got quite good marks on both speaking and writing.

I don't have enough time to practice because my exam is in this week. eventually I got only 2 days left and I am very unsure about reading exam.

i need 6.5
by: IELTS buddy

Hi m.zahid,

Someone can tell you how to get a 6.5, or in other words what specific criteria is needed for a 6.5, but that doesn't mean you are then just going to be able to do it.

You are learning a language so like any language learning it comes from hard work and study.

So what you need to decide is how you are going to study and that depends on many things such as your time and resources i.e. can you get lessons or not and how much free time can you put into learning.

incorrect Marking

I have given ielts test twice and everytime I got overall band 7 score.

To my surprise the first time when i gave test i was very much aware than i will score around this: L-6.5, R-7, W-6.5, S- 7.5.

However my next attempt went really well, much much better than my previous section.

However there was no change in my score. R- 6.5, L - 7, W- 6.5, S- 7.5.

I am not able to understand why this happened when all my sections were far far far better than what i did before.

I have completely lost my interest now in ielts since it simply seems to be money making thing wherein either have to have good luck to score 8.5 in first attempt or you have to really have to invest multiple times to get your desired score.

Hi, how do you know that your sections were far better than the first time?

It's impossible to know how many you got right / wrong in the reading and speaking, or how good your essay or graph was.

Only the graders will know that.

Please help
by: Junaid

Please help me out I had given the IELTS General Module Test on 24th September 2016. I am shocked after looking at my result.

* Listening 5.5 (20 or 19 wrong answers out of 40)

I did more than 50 practice tests before giving my IELTS (the lowest I scored in 2 or 3 tests were 6.5 bands and the highest were above 7/ 8 bands). Listening is the easiest part of the IELTS. I can bet British council on that, if my score will be less then 7 bands, I will give them my certificate back.

* Writing 5.5

Mostly the cases I have seen in the past regarding the writing tests of IELTS were that if a candidate meets with the minimum requirements like 250words (essay), 150 words (letter), like basic vocabs with few grammatical mistakes, resulted with a 6.5 bands.

I am a graduated engineer and has been in the English environment since the age of 5. I used rich vocabs/linked the sentences in a right way. Furthermore, before giving the test i learnt more than 11 essays (6000 of words, 250 contexts) from the IELTS books (prepared by the examiner). Interestingly, one of that topic came in the test.

Let's just put this in other perspective, One of my friend had given the same test with me. According to him he was expecting 5.5 because he didn't use vocabs and also his grammar is too weak. Even after that he got 6 bands.

Kindly help me guys what should i have do now ?? They are offering for EOR, rechecking.

Next time L 6, R 5, W 6, and S 6

AND THIS all 6!! What do I need to do sir? Do I need to go for TOEFL or PTE??

Failing to get 6.5
by: IELTS buddy

I can't advise you about PTE or TOEFL. People have varying opinions as to which tests are easier so that is a very personal thing.

Also it depends where you are intending to go to and what kind of test results they accept.

I don't know how long you have been taking IELTS but it can take some people a long time to move up even half a band.

Remember you are learning a language and that can take time.

Listening - 8.5

Is there any way I can develop my writing skills so that I can retake the exam to get a better result, and also should I take the SAT to apply to US universities.

Always get 4.5 / 5
by: IELTS buddy

It's impossible to tell you how to improve your score in one message on a forum.

Firstly it can take time to improve (I don't know how long you have been studying).

Also you are learning a language so that involves learning many different things, plus it's impossible to know what your specific problems are without a personal assessment.

The website is here to help you improve your score so please go through it and start the lessons and practice materials.

If you have put a lot of work in and you are still not improving then really you'd have to think about some kind of personal tuition or classes.
