  • Therefore, a candidate who secures 6.5 for Reading, 6.5 for Listening, 7.0 for Speaking and 5.0 for Writing would be awarded an Overall Band Score of 6.5 (25/4 = 6.25 = Band 6.5) in IELTS result 2019.

Example: (III)

  • On the other hand, a candidate achieving 6.5 for Listening, 6.5 for Reading, 5.5 for Writing and 6.0 for Speaking would be awarded band 6.0 (24.5/4 = 6.125 = Band 6) in the IELTS result 2019.


The Test Report Form (TRF) provides with the candidate’s overall band scores and band score for each of the four components, listening, reading, writing and speaking. The average of the four component scores, when rounded to the nearest whole or half band, is the Overall Band Score. There is equal weight provided to each of the component scores.

Apurv 15th Oct, 2019

Hello Jyotsna, There is nothing like syllabus for IELTS exam. It is just a proficiency test for english language. There are 4 sections in the test: Reading, writing, speaking and listening. For the reading section, there would be an unseen passage and some questions related to that, you would need to find answers from the passage. for the listening section, you would have to answer the question based on the sound clip you hear. For the writing section, you would be needed to write two essays on the topic given. As for the speaking test, you would have to talk face to face with the instructor for about 12-15 minutes in english. I have given computer delivered IELTS myself and scored 7.0 in first attempt. I didn't do any coaching or read anything. Although i am going to give you official link for the practice tests:
