IELTS score and levels 

What does my exam score mean?

The IELTS English test assesses English language skills at various levels. This English test uses a band scoring system to measure results, with 1 being the lowest band and nine being the highest. You will be scored on an IELTS score range of 0-9 for each section of the test, reflecting your level of English.

Your IELTS transcript shows a score for each of the four skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) and an overall score. You can earn a total band score (Ex. 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0) or a half band score (Ex. 5.5, 6.5, and 7.5) on each exam section.
