Overall 7.5 score

Post by Reverence » Sat Oct 24, 2015 6:09 am

Hey everyone!
I just got my IELTS results and I scored 7.5 in IELTS. I was a bit disappointed as I was aiming for an 8.0 or greater but nonetheless I only required a 6.5 or 7.0 maybe.

Listening 8.0
Reading 7.5
Writing 7.0
Speaking 6.5 ;(

Well basically I did a lot of speaking practice and stuff but still I scored low on that and I have no idea why.
I think I spoke pretty good, but then again maybe I could have spoken better.
Anyway, for listening I only listened to 1 audio track and hence did only 1 practice test for listening as it seemed pretty easy. However, I think the part where I had to label the map threw my score down. So I'd suggest to practice the map part as the rest is generally easier.
For writing I didn't do a single thing as I had just given the SAT a few days before my IELTS exam. However, I did feel it pretty hard to describe the graph as I hadn't done it so I advise you guys to focus on the graph part more if you are generally good with the other part.
For writing I did one exercise only as I had given the SAT and had some practice from that.
