Hi everyone,

As I'm finalizing my application for the Startup Business Visa, I have to submit my IELTS. For my last IELTS test, I got an overall score of 5.5 with the score breakdown: Listening 4.5, Reading 5.0, Writing 5.5 and Speaking 6.0.

My overall score is acceptable according to the requirements of the program (5.0 and above) but since my Listening is 4.5, I'm wondering if it is acceptable.

Please share your knowledge on this, thanks in advance!

See the requirements. Your score is too low in the Listening category to be approved.

To apply for a start-up visa, you must show that you have reached Canadian Language Benchmark 5 in listening, reading, writing and speaking.
