Should I ask for an IELTS remark?

by Hossam
(Jeddah)


I took the exam two times, in the first time, I have got the results I expected which was:


L 5.5
R 6.5
W 6
S 5.5

The second time, I was happy from the exam as I was confident that I would get "7" in all except writing but unfortunately I got:

L 5.5
R 6
W 6
S 6

I believe that this results are not mine, this results which are not expected make me frustrated to get the required scores.

Could you please give me your advice?

IELTS scores of 9 but 6 in writing

Dear all,

I would like to ask about getting an EOR for my IELTS test. I just got my results, and they were as follows:

Speaking: 9
Reading: 9
Listening: 9
Writing: 6

I don't think I need to tell you what I think is wrong with these results. I am a native-level speaker who uses both spoken and written English at a high level on a daily basis. I'm pretty sure my essays deserve better than 6.

Do you think there's a possibility that IELTS actually mixed up my writing result with somebody else's? The difference just seems too big to simply be down to the assessor's opinion.

I took IELTS to apply for a graduate program. The thing is, they require you to have a minimum of 6,5 in writing. Do you think I would have a decent chance of getting my score increased?

I'm naturally worried about wasting money if the result turns out to be negative.

Thank you for everyone's opinions!

Shall I go for remarking or not?

by Constatinou
(Europe)

Hi,

I just need your advice.

Some candidates are saying that they received 6.5 band in writing and speaking.

Do you think they should go for a remarking so that they may get their score increased?

The point is that how can you believe the authenticity of rechecking by the British council.

Because if marks were raised in revaluation, British council would have to payback the fee so their honesty is at stake.

Why do they bother to increase the scores of the candidates ?

Do only one examiner is hired to recheck the exams of one candidate or not?

I hope you will reply soon .

Since you are helpful, you are a hope for many .

Bye

Waiting for IELTS Enquiry on Results

by Andie
(Philippines)

Hi,

I took my very first IELTS test last March 2016 and here are my scores:

Listening - 8.5
Reading - 8.5
Writing - 6.5
Speaking - 7

I basically prepared for 3 weeks before taking the test and I really focused on the Writing part. I studied the essay structures the examiners might be looking for and, in general, I think my writing skills will bring me a band score of 7 because I was used to writing research papers in English as an undergraduate student.

After taking the test, I was confident about my performance in the writing part. I was actually expecting a score which is higher than 7. It was in the speaking part that I really had a difficulty in because I was so nervous during the interview. Hence, I was expecting a speaking test score which is below 7. To my surprise, I got a 6.5 in writing and a 7 in speaking.

I requested for IELTS Enquiry on Results (EoR) and I am currently on my 4th week of waiting. I need to get an all-7 IELTS score for each band by August to apply for my target university in Australia.

I'd like to ask if it's a wise step on my part to have my results remarked. Also, while waiting for the result of my Enquiry on Results, what steps can I do to improve my Writing and Speaking skills given my current scores, previous preparation and own assessment of my writing and speaking skills?

Lastly, if ever my scores would not improve through EoR, when is the best time to re-take the IELTS test? As much as possible, I'd like to have two possible chances of re-taking the IELTS test before August if worse comes to worst.

Thank you!

by Anisha
(Mymbai)

Got the result today..and very disappointed because it is:

L - 8.5
R - 7.5
S -7.0
W - 5.0

I had writing 7 in my previous attempt. Is there any chance of getting higher band score in writing if I give for remarking? What do you think is the best way to score individual 7 score..

Should I go for revaluation?

by MANOJ
(India)

Hi all,

My IELTS score on 1st attempt (30 Jan, 2016):

L-6.0
R-5.5
W-6.0
S-6.0

Overall - 6.0

My IELTS score on 2nd attempt (19 May, 2016)

L-6.5
R-6.0
W-5.5
S-6.5

Overall - 6.0

Should I go for revaluation? because I am lagging 0.5 in writing which would tilt my overall score to 6.5 from 6.0.

Thank you :)

I was hoping for band 8 in writing...

by Sam
(Sydney)

Hi all. I have just sat the IELTS as part of my Visa requirements to stay in Australia.

My scores were -

L: 9.0
R: 9.0
W: 7.5
S: 9.0

O: 8.5

Scoring over sevens works for my visa but over eights in all categories would give me extra points and ensure a quicker processing time. As English is my first language I was hoping for all eights.

So my question is - is it worth an EOR for my written test? And is it possible for scores to drop after an EOR? If so I won't bother.

Thanks

English major but did badly in IELTS reading and writing

by Chris
(Canberra, ACT, Australia)

I scored 9 for my Speaking test and 8.5 for my Listening, but for both Reading and Writing I scored 6. I need to achieve band 7 in both of the latter in order to teach in Australia.

As an English major I find it astounding that I should have scored so low on the last two categories. Is it worth me requesting a remark?

My teaching qualifications were achieved outside of Australia, I am therefore needing to achieve the score of a minimum of 7 before my qualifications will be considered.

Any advice?

by Shobaruddin
(Semarang, Indonesia)

I took IELTS Exam twice. Firstly my score was:

L. 6.0
R. 6.5
W. 5.5
S. 6.5

Some of my friends advised me to remark, but I got anxiety that my score will be increased. So, I took the retest. Unfortunately, my second score was similar with the first:

L. 6.5
R. 6.5
W. 6.0
S. 5.5

Can Anybody give me suggestion, should I remark or retest?

Anybody here got increasing result after remark?

*note: I only need 6.5 overall band score and each section no less than 6.0. Thank you
