thanks mate.

i applied for all four of them and i think it helped. Because when a examiner sees that you got more than 7 in 3 sections but missed out marginally in 1 section, then i guess, they show some pity on students.

i would suggest, even though you missed out in 1 section, you better apply for recheck in all four sections because they cant reduce marks other than increasing it ! so why not take a chance !

best of luck mate for future !


cheers !

if you are confident of getting 7 in writing, then you better apply for recheck. I would suggest you to recheck all four bands because you have got good bands in others. so seeing that, examiner may consider to increase writing score...who knows !

best of luck !

Hi

It's true that you cannot get a lower band score when you apply for a remark, and so the only risk in asking for a remark is that your score comes back the same and you lose your money.

However, the examiner who looks at your writing will not know the other scores that you got in any of the skills (because this could influence their mark for your writing), and so this should not be the reason that you decide to get a remark.

My advice is that you think about whether or not you completed both tasks, answered the questions in full, organised and linked your ideas clearly, and used a range of grammar and vocabulary accurately.

If you did, then you should consider getting a remark.

You could also compare your writing to the example answers in the Cambridge IELTS series of past papers (e.g. Cambridge IELTS 7); in these books the example answers are given band scores by certified examiners.

In that way, you'll get an idea of whether or not your writing is good enough.

Good luck,

Pete

Default thanx

thanx Pete...i think i did pretty well in writing this time coz when i gave the test last time i scored 7 in writing and the lady at the test centre told me to attach the previous certificate while giving for rechecking to show that i scored higher marks before just to increase my chances i guess... i'm going for rechecking anyway and i hope they increase it to 7.
