IELTS scores of 9 but 6 in writing
by: IELTS buddy

Hi William,

The things is they check scores again if there is a big discrepancy, and there is with yours. So it will have been looked at already (or it should have been - of course I can't guarantee they did, but it is their prosecute to do so).

6 is low for a native speaker how is good at English, but occasionally native speakers do mess it up as others do. Perhaps misreading the question in some way.

Also for Task 1 there are a few things you can do (or not do) that can considerably decrease your score if you don't know about them. That's why looking at tips and strategies before the test is a good idea.

So really you may need to take the test again but make sure you know exactly what do / not do in the writing.

Hi everyone
I took the IELTS exam for the first time 2 weeks ago and scored 8 in both speaking and listening and 8.5 in reading.
However, my writing score was 6. Do you advise me to apply for remarking?

I took IELTS twice last month. Scored S-8, L-8, R-7, W-6 the first time. The second time I had S-8, L-7, R-6.5, W-7.

However, I needed a minimum of 6.5 in each band to combine the two results for my registration. I then requested for a remark of writing module in the first test. I was very pessimistic as I thought they would have remarked it due to a difference of two band score.

After 4 weeks, my result came back and my writing was increased from 6.0 to 7.0 and my money was refunded. Also, English is my second language.

Don't hesitate to request a remark if you feel that you need to.

Hi everyone

I got my results for the tests taken on the 19th of January 2019.They were as follows..S8 L8 R7.5 and W6. This is the second time the results are coming out like that. I am considering a remark as i feel strongly that something is amiss. I shall update of the outcome.

Hi, I have received my IELTS results day before. Results are as follows.


I believe I did better than 6.5 in Writing. Should I get my results rechecked ?

Please suggest.

It is quite normal guys, to get 6 or 6.5 in writing. As getting a 7 in writing is quite rare these days, especially when you are taking an exam in a populous country - they can make more money out of this business.
