    Hi all

     

    Does anyone know what percentage is needed to get level 7 and 8 for IELTS test?

     

    I am applying for a 176 Visa. For state sponsorship, to meet the new points score after 1 July I need level 7, if i don't manage to lodge my application with DIAC before I turn 40 (losing points) I need to get a level 8!

     

    My exam is booked for 30th July.:jiggy:

    If you go to http://www.canadavisa.com/ielts/free-practice-tests.html you can take the reading and listening and get them marked - I can't remember if it tells you the band as well, but I always got a couple wrong on all the practise tests I did, so I assume I got a couple wrong in the real thing, and got 9's in all but writing (8.5), so there's some play there - as long as you practise to get used to the format, you really shouldn't struggle (I did the academic as well, which is meant to be a bit more tricky apparently, tricky in that it tricks you, rather than harder if that makes sense...)

     

    also can try http://www.ielts-exam.net/ and there is a really good thread on Poms in Oz (possibly called IELTS Help! - search for IELTS anyways), where an examiner gives feedback on a writing example.

     

    Just practise a couple of times, you will be fine :)

    Hi, I know for the reading and listening it is 40 questions which for a score of 7 enables you room for 7 or 8 incorrect answers out of the 40, not sure how they score speaking and writing is about the content of what you put down.:cute:

    Hi All

     

    I've been lucky and haven't had to my ielts, but when I thought I had to I got the official Oxford ielts revision books from the local library and they were really good and I was scoring 95-100% by the end of them, in the reading and listening. They also give you example of the writing. Try them out.;) and good luck.

     

    Ps well done Adelaide-bound SMARTY PANTS!! lol.

    The book I have gives tips

    Eg receiving a present from a friend in Canada, (informal)

    Thank for what you Received (make present up)

    How you felt receiving it

    What you will use it for

    Then just bulk it up it your allocated time

     

    For the essay read carefully and answer the question putting in a clear argument for and against.

    Or why and resolutions and conclude it, that's what the book says lol

    Good luck to all :)
