IELTS Score Calculator

IELTS score calculator for Listening and Reading [Academic IELTS & General IELTS]

The IELTS Listening and Reading papers contain 40 questions and each correct question is awarded one mark; the maximum raw score a candidate can achieve on a paper is 40. IELTS Band scores ranging from IELTS Band 1 to IELTS Band 9 are awarded to candidates on the basis of their raw scores.

Although all IELTS test materials are pretested and trialled before being released as live tests, there are inevitably minor differences in the difficulty level across tests.

In order to equate different test versions, the IELTS band score boundaries are set so that all candidates’ results relate to the same scale of achievement. This means, for example, that the IELTS Band 6 boundary may be set at a slightly different raw score across different versions of the IELTS test.
