  18. Arushi Madan says

    Finally after lot of waiting,, I got my IELTS for UKVI result on 24th July (for the test I took on 25th June). So it took 4 weeks.
    I got my result by sms and was told that I should personally collect my Test Report Form(TRF) from British Council office. The result as per sms was

    Reading 8.5
    Listening 8.5
    Speaking 8
    Writing 6
    Overall 8
    But when I collected my original TRF from BC office, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my Writing was higher than what was told to me by sms. So my actual result as per the TRF is
    Reading 8.5
    Listening 8.5
    Speaking 8
    Writing 6.5
    Overall 8

    Has anyone else faced such a situation?

  19. Atanga Victor Asaah says

    AT times we take things for granted but when you come with exercises like these they serve as an eye-opener and a reminder. More grease to your elbows.

  20. Suman Das says
