Wife got her IELTS scores today!

Recommended Posts

My wife got her scores in today. She went into the test blind. She didn't even looking at what would be involved or any sample tests.

 

She got 8.5/8.5/7.5/9

 

That gives her an extra 10 points on the new test and puts her up to 70 points total! Yeehaw! (as we say here in Texas)

 

One step closer!

Hi all

 

You need to obtain a minimum of 8 in each category to get the extra 10 points.

 

I know some occupations require a minumum score in each category so you need to check your occupation requirements also !

 

Cheers

I believe with the new point system it's 10pts for all 7s and 20pts for all 8s. So since my wife got a 7.5 in one category which gives her 10 points.

Hi there,

Firstly, don't panic!! The writing is fine as long as you have a look at the format that they expect, and do a little practise if you feel you need it. There are a couple of threads that have some good advice from people that have already done their IELTS. Do a search for "IELTS Rant" & "IELTS this week". Hope that helps.

I'll chime in one more point. The staff at the location where my wife took the test was HORRID! Houston, TX.....she arrived in plenty of time but everyone there was required to stand outside the building as they took in 5 at a time. She was standing outside for an hour plus and it was in the mid 90s(F) temp. No chairs or refreshments. After she was taken inside there was a lobby that could have easily sat everyone. She said they were alos very rude and treated the people there very poorly....especially the individuals that were of other nationalities or race than they. Now that we have the results in hand a complaint is going to be submitted on that test center.
