Why is there a different criteria for marking IELTS academic and general reading?
Can any one tell me please that why there is a different criteria for marking academic and general reading. Eg Score of 30 out of 40 would give you 7 band in academic reading but the same will be considered as 6 band in general reading.
Is it because the academic reading is harder than general reading so marking criteria is lenient for it.
Please help me to understand this as i am sitting in general test. I am practicing with academic reading and every time i ended up with 30 out of 40 which is giving me frustration that will i be able to perform well or not.
Please help me
Thanks in advance

IELTS Reading Matching Question
by Hae Jin
(Vancouver, BC, Canada )
I am currently practicing for my IELTS General Training using the British Council's Road to IELTS Test Practice questions.
I have a question from the Set 1 Test Practice (Reading), Section 2: Question 26 and 27.
It is a matching question. The passage is quoted below:
"Sometimes a dismissal is not considered to have taken place fairly. One of these types is wrongful dismissal and involves a breach of contract by the employer. This could involve dismissing an employee without notice or without following proper disciplinary and dismissal procedures. Another type, unfair dismissal, is when an employee is sacked without good cause."
And the questions are as follow:
26. An employer gets rid of an employee without keeping to conditions in the contract.
27. The reason for an employee’s dismissal is not considered good enough.
Based on the answer key, Q26 is matched with D (wrongful dismissal) and Q27 is matched with C (unfair dismissal) and I answered the other way around.
Am I understanding the passage wrong or is this a mistake in the answer key?
