I plan to study in Mohawk College, Ontario their english requirement is;
- IELTS Academic minimum score of 6.0 overall with no band less than 5.5

My IELTS Academic score is:
Listening: 9
Reading: 7.5
Writing: 5.5
Speaking: 8
Overall Band Score: 7.5

I know school acceptance won’t be an issue but will my score be an issue with the VO when I apply for a Student Permit?

I NEED YOUR OPINIONS.

Firstly, congrats on achieving a great score in rest of the bands. As far as eligibility requirements are concerned, one needs to have 6 bands in each section in order to apply under SDS stream.

But I think if you apply under Non-SDS stream by maybe highlighting your written English potential (Perhaps via a letter from your English teacher back at university/college attesting your written English). You can also highlight good scores in English or language related subjects taken during your past studies in your SOP.

Thank you! I honestly just ran out of time and was low on the word count in writing :(

I’ll take a note on this. I’ll put some higlight on it on my SOP, thanks again.
