IELTS Recheck
by: IELTS buddy

I'm not sure what there is that you feel needs re-checking as your results are quite consistent.

You've generally tended to get around the same grades. Listening has been between 5.5-6.5 which is quite understandable, and reading has stayed around the 5.5 / 6 level. In any case, these two modules are right or wrong so there is nothing to recheck.

Your writing seems fairly consistent - again the 5.5 / 6 level.

The only possible issue is your speaking as it went to from 6 to 7.5 to 6 which is a bit odd. However, given that twice you were given 6, is it possible that the examiner who gave you 7.5 over marked you a bit and you performed a bit better? The lower scores match your other tests better.

I have no idea if that is the case but I'm just saying it's a possibility. If that is the case, then generally your scores looks quite similar over the 3 tests.

Recheck for Writing and Speaking
by: Mit patel

Hi, i received my scores today:

L: 8.5
R: 9
W: 6.5
S: 6.5

Overall = 7.5

I was quiet confident to get 7+ in my speaking test. i know there might be difference in judgment in writing. So specifically i want to get my speaking score rechecked, i'm okay with my writing score.

Should i take a chance for getting the speaking score rechecked?? i need just 0.5 more to get an overall of 8. Also is it possible to get only one section rechecked?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can just ask for your speaking to be rechecked though I think it's the same price whether you ask for one or more.

If you want half a band rather than a whole band then you have more chance, as it's less likely your score was a whole band out.

However, it's not possible to say if you are likely to be successful or not. If an error has clearly been made, for example because someone got much higher before or for some other reason they know they are better than the score they got, then it's more possible to take the view that an increase is more likely.

But in your case you are just saying you think you did better than you got but nobody else can really judge that.

A good reason for getting a recheck would be if maybe your other scores were better than you expected. By that I mean it is important that you keep them, because if you take the test again you could get lower in those.

I got my score today for IELTS UKVI Computer delivered:-

Listening 8.5
Reading 9
Writing 6.5
Speaking 8
Overall= 8

I was confident with my task 2 response. I feel like I would have scored a 7 minimum in writing. Should I go for recheck or not?

My first test was

W: 5.5

but second attempt which was 20 days ago:

I believe that i was 7 at speaking as good as my first attempt. Also my writing is better that previous test. I'm considering remark. What do you think?
