IELTS Band Score Descriptors 

These are the assessment criteria for IELTS writing (both academic and general training) and speaking. Each marking criterion is explained for each band score. These public band scores are published by IELTS to help you understand the requirements of each band score and to learn how you are assessed by the examiner.

IELTS Answer Sheets

It is useful to practice doing a full test using the answer sheets before your test. Remember you get an extra 10 mins for transfering answers in listening but no extra time for transferring answers to the answer sheet in reading. Watch the tutorial about using the IELTS writing answer sheet before your test.

IELTS Topics & Questions for Speaking and Writing 

Make sure you practise plenty of sample questions and tasks for both writing and speaking before your test. These pages offer practise exercises and topics to prepare for your test.
