Regarding re-marking of my exam result

Post by hemantsharma90 » Sun Dec 04, 2016 5:08 am


Firstly, I would like to thank you from bottom of my hear for helping all of us in IELTS test.

My result is out and i got following score:

L - 7.5
R - 7
W - 7
S - 6.5

I missed in speaking by 0.5 band and just wonder whether should I file for remarking or not. Please help and share your views.

Thanks in Advance

That's a tough one! The decision must be based on an honest assessment of three key factors ...

a) Did you find the writing tasks easier than usual?
b) A band 7 for speaking requires high level skills. Did you manage to show those to the examiner in the test?
c) Is it worth spending the money on a remark that might not change your score instead of a new test?

All the best,
