How to Calculate IELTS Scores

The calculation of the IELTS Result 2018 is done by taking the mean of the total of the four individual sectional scores, namely Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking scores. IELTS Band Scores 2018 are reported considering the nearest whole or the half band. To avoid confusions, the following rounding convention applies; if the average across the four skills ends in .25, it is rounded up to the next half band, and if it ends in .75, it is rounded up to the next whole band. Thus, a candidate achieving 6.5 for Listening, 6.5 for Reading, 5.0 for Writing and 7.0 for Speaking would be awarded an Overall Band Score of 6.5 (25/4 = 6.25 = Band 6.5) in the IELTS Result 2018.

 

Likewise, in the IELTS 2018 Result a candidate achieving 4.0 for Listening, 3.5 for Reading, 4.0 for Writing and 4.0 for Speaking would be awarded an Overall Band Score of 4.0 (15.5/4 =3.875= Band 4.0). 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 2018.

In case, a candidate wants to re-evaluate the IELTS result 2018, he/she must apply for an Enquiry at test centre within six weeks of the test date.

The IELTS Test Pattern 2018 is prepared to reflect the use of English in everyday life. The IELTS result 2018 are reported in whole or half bands. Each of the sub-test scores is equally weighted and the OBS is calculated by taking the mean of the total of the four individual sub-test scores.
