IELTS band 6 = 8 points in FSW?

Discussion in 'IELTS - International English Language Testing Sys' started by nvblue, Mar 26, 2012.

  1. Hello, I have received a letter from Canadian Embassy stating my IELTS marks = 8 points. Is it true? Below is my IELTS score.

    Listening : 7
    Reading : 6
    Writing : 5.5
    Speaking : 6
    Overall Band Score : 6

    Experts, reply me urgently so that i can take the action accordingly to send "mistake" letter for my IELTS point calculation. I was thinking to get "10" marks as per below index.

    Reading = 2 Points
    Writing = 2 Points
    Speaking = 2 Points
    Listening = 4 Points

    Total = 10

    Isn't it true?
     
  2. Listening : 7
    Reading : 6
    Writing : 5.5
    Speaking : 6

    Old System

    L 7 = 4
    R 6 = 2
    W 5.5 = 2
    S 6 = 2

    Total -10

    New System

    L 7 = 2
    R 6 = 2
    W 5.5 = 2
    S 6 = 2

    Total - 8

    But you applied when it was old system so you can claim 10
     
  3. @ canadian dreams,

    How much you are sure that i will sure get 10 points? As you must aware that i have applied in April,6 2010 in NOC 0213. Do you have any justification because i am going to ask "Visa Officer" regarding less point calculation. So, if i am wrong, they will not reconsider my PR file.

    Therefore, please send me some verified documents that says 10 points in IELTS as per my score.

    Waiting for your prompt response,
    nvblue

    I have also given it 3 times and 2 times before I had 4.5 in Reading, this time I changed my studying process, all I did was read articles every single day, from these articles take 2 para's ONLY and mark every single word that I did not know the OXFORD dictionary meaning( no matter the words be as simple as "understand,guilty,instead, committed" etc you should know the OXFORD dictionary meaning of every single word that you read from the 2 para's, if you do this every single day and for atleast 3-4 weeks you will be able to get more than me. I did this only for 2 weeks. Also I did was when answering the mock test I kept my time to 40 minutes instead of 60 mins. This kept pressure on me and I had a lot of time on hands at the actual exam. I managed to get above and beyond what I expected. There is no harm in trying this as this has worked for a lot of people/students.

    All the best
