IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. One needs to appear for this test if one wants to move to a country where the native language is English. This test determines whether one is capable enough to communicate in English or not. If you want to migrate to countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA, you need to clear this test.

Moreover, this test consists of four modules reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Each of these skills is scored on a scale of 1-9. And the scores you get out of 9 will decide the level of your English.

Band Score Skill Level
9 Expert
8 Very Good
7 Good

IELTS Band Score Requirement

As mentioned above, one needs to clear the IELTS test to migrate to an English country. However, the band score requirement is different for different countries and different types of visas. This means the minimum score requirement will be different for study visas, work permits, and permanent residency.

For Study Visa

Country Bachelor’s Master’s
Australia 6.0 6.5
New Zealand 6.0 to 6.5 6.0 to 6.5
Canada 6.5 6.5 to 7.0
U.S.A 6.0 7.0
U.K 6.5 7.0 to 7.5

It must be noted that the above-mentioned minimum requirement is for most of the colleges or universities in these countries. However, the requirement may vary for some renowned universities or some courses.

This minimum score requirement is the overall band score of the four modules. And if someone is not able to get the desired score because of any one of the modules, one needs to reappear for all four modules. However, the latest IELTS update has been received that it is going to launch One Skill Retake. For now, this will be implemented in Australia soon. Further, there are not many updates about it but keep in contact with our website for further updates.
