Calculate IELTS Band Scores: Explanation

You will be given a score from 1 to 9 for each part of the test –

  1. Listening,
  2. Reading,
  3. Writing
  4. Speaking.

The average produces your overall band score. You can score whole (e.g., 5.0, 6.0, 7.0) or half (e.g., 5.5, 6.5, 7.5) bands in each part of the test.

  • Reading 6.5 + Writing 5 + Speaking 7 + Listening 6.5 = 25
    Divide 25 by 4 = 6.25
    Ends in .25 so round up to the next half band
    Overall band score = 6.5
