We are hoping we can draw on your knowledge & experience.
We both received our IELTS results yesterday & whilst we both obtained an overall score of 8 & 8.5 our reading results were 6.5. My results were 8,6.5,8.5,9 & Johns' were 9,6.5,8.5,9.
Our instant re-action was how? Especially as the other results are good. At the time we thought the text/questions on the whales was poorly written & open to interpretation but decided it can't have been that bad as it is for an English test & maybe it was just us. Has anyone else taken this test in the last couple of weeks & found the same?
Yesterday I informed our agent & she has told us we have to re-take the test as a minimum score of 7 in each section is required. Is this correct? We were under the assumption it was the overall score that was needed.
Today I'm deliberating on what to do next. Should I contact the test centre & query the reading results for us both or should I just do what the agent says & book a retest?
We are hoping to follow the WA SS route.
