IELTS band score calculator

IELTS band score is between 0 and 9 for every module. Sometimes, a candidate can also get .5 scores as well (for example, 6.5 or 7.5). A candidate will get a band score for each skill (listening, reading, writing and speaking) based on the test performance and also an overview of band score. The overall band score is the average score of all the skills. This calculator will give you an idea of the bands based on the correct answer. This way you will know how many correct answers are required to achieve your band score.

IELTS academic vs general scores

1. Content used for both test

The content of some sections and the purposes for which the exam is used is different in both academic and general exam. While academic use complex reading and writing sections, general candidates have to answer reading question related to everyday work and general topics. In writing, task 1 section is different for academic candidates where they have to write about a graph or science section. On the contrary, general candidates have to write a letter in task 1 section of IELTS writing.

2. Purpose and future prospects of IELTS

The IELTS academic reading and writing papers are designed for those pursuing postsecondary degrees, while general training reading and writing feature content more appropriate for the workplace. Undergraduate or graduate university applicants take the academic test, while the general training test is most often used for the assessment of skilled workers. Academic institutions will generally accept the academic test only, and the general training test is often required by immigration agencies for certain types of applicants.

3. Career prospects IELTS

However, it should not be assumed that the general training test is always taken for all non-academic purposes. Some private companies that use the IELTS to evaluate their job applicants, for example, prefer the academic test over the general training test. The IELTS website includes a database of the test versions and test scores expected by a large number of academic and non-academic organizations.
