The agency told me that it should be either get two 6.5's and the other a minimum of two 5's. Am I failed with my band score? Anybody here pls answer me...

it all boils down to how many pts you need from the language to get your entire score to 67 pts. but i think 4 is minimum on all module. Your consultant probably computed that you have to get atleast 2 pts on each module giving you 8 pts.
Here is the average range for each of the module (e.i. Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing)

Average Ranges (See the IMM0008 Instruction Guide for the details)
4pts High = 6.5-9.0
2pts Moderate = 5.5-6.0
1pt Basic = 3.5-5.0

You probably need around 12 pts from language criteria which your agency told you. (8 pts from 2 6.50 and 4pts from 2 5.0s). You can retake it but be sure to prepare for the next one. Good luck!

There is no pass or fail. All you need is 67 points to qualify for skilled immigration. e.g If you have 60 points for all other criteria you need only 7 points from IELTS. To see how many points you can get from IELTS read read" http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/guides/EG7.pdf  page 10

try to take the test and learn how do you get your points (and your IELTS score requirement)

www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/assess/Education.asp

you may take a lot of ways to increase your point i.e. taking a Master degree or take French course or make an arranged employment etc, not only increase your IELTS

the way i see it, the only chance for now to reach 67 pts is to improve your IELTS score from 14 to 16.  if you can get 6.5 in reading, that will give you 16pts total in language skills.

maybe you have relative/s in canada who is/are either permanent resident or a citizen already? that will give you additional 5pts. are you married? if yes, and your spouse has relatives there, or has some degree in college, that'll help too

good luck
