The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an English proficiency test used to assess the language skills of non-native speakers. The IELTS reading test is designed to evaluate a candidate’s ability to understand academic English. The reading test is divided into three sections, and candidates are given 60 minutes to complete the test. In this tutorial, we will discuss how IELTS reading test scores are calculated.
The IELTS reading test is scored on a scale of 0 to 9. Each correct answer in the reading test carries one mark, and there are a total of 40 questions. The raw score is then converted to a band score, which is a measure of the candidate’s proficiency level in reading. The following chart shows the correlation between raw scores and band scores:
