IELTS Listening band scores depend on how many correct answers you get in the listening module. There are no negative marks in IELTS so only your correct answers are counted for calculating your band score in the Listening section. The approximate band score calculation is as follows:

Correct Answers (out of 40)Band Score
165
236
307

Just like the listening section, your reading band score depends on the number of correct answers in the reading section. The interesting thing to note is that the reading band scores are calculated differently for general and academic IELTS.

IELTS Writing Bands

To better understand the level of performance required to secure a particular band in Writing, refer to the IELTS assessment criteria for Task 1 and Task 2:

NOTE: In the writing section, task 1 and task 2 do not have equal weightage. Task 2 is worth twice the marks of task 1. Hence it is important to focus more of your effort on task 2 than on task 1.
