Hubby has just found out he hasn`t got the scores he needed for the 175 visa!! He got 9`s in reading, listening and speaking and 7.5 in writing!! So we have lost out for the 20 points we needed for him to apply for the 175 absolutly gutted 8-((

OH gets his results by post in the morning but we already got him booked for round 2 but all test centres are chockers so earliest IELTS we could get was June 3oth !!!!! Book Now !!
Yes..........do it. Don't let it grind you down. Cool calm and loads of good wishes will get him (and you) there. Good Luck
Exactly the same thing happened to me.. got 7.5 in the writing! Gutted.. BUt after a few days was up for round 2... Second time round an 8.5.. Bet he will do it second time around.. just go for it.. it will be worth it.
