If you scored 30/40 on your IELTS GENERAL TRAINING Reading test, what is your band score?

It is very important that you try a number of practice IELTS Reading tests before you sit your test.  Once you have completed your practice test, how do you know your band score?

Well, the following table will help you with your score calculation:

Correct Answers

Band Score

40

9.0

39

8.5

38

8.0

36-37

7.5

34-35

32-33

6.5

30-31

6.0

27-29

5.5

23-26

5.0

19-22

So, if your score was 30/40, your Reading Band Score would be 6.0  B

    Before going to sit IELTS Exam, I recommend you practice a set of test once a week, after that, summarise the mistakes. If you don't know the words, please use these new words in a sentence, then memorise them. Summary is the most significant thing you have to do. Do it once a week, and then relax on Sunday, then start your new weeks. Hope you enjoy your English Study.

    Indeed, it is a great info on how to find the band score based on number of Correct Answers. I am also going to take this exam and my ielts coaching in panchkula is about to be completed. The high level of lessons has prepared me in best way for this exam so I am highly confident that I would be passing it soon.
