In the IELTS exam, you receive a score, which is called a ‘band’, for each section of the exam – listening, reading, writing and speaking. You also receive an overall band score, which is the average score of the four sections. The band system is on a scale from 1 to 9, with each band corresponding to a level of English competence. Band 1 indicates that you have virtually no English at all, while band 9 is considered to be a high level of proficiency. It is also possible to get a half score, for example, 7.5.
