Hello Simon,

According to official IELTS guidelines:

Band 6 is about 23 out of 40
Band 7 is about 30
Band 8 is about 35


How about 6.5 in Listening and reading?
How many questions needed to be answered to get 6.5 in Listening and Reading?

Hello Simon,
I had a query regarding examples in task 2. Is it possible to get band 7 if I dont include examples in my essay at all??

@Sehrish Taufeeq

The instructions usually contain something like:
"You should give reasons for your answer using your own ideas and experience."

And the marking criteria for band 7 include:
"presents, extends and supports main ideas, but there may be a tendency to over-generalize and/or supporting ideas may lack focus"

It might be a good idea to work through the writing material on this site (by clicking on "Writing Task 2" in the left sidebar), if you have not already done so already.
