IELTS Listening band scores

You need to answer 40 questions in your IELTS Listening test. You get one mark for each correct answer. The total correct answers will determine your 'raw' score from which your band score will be determined. It is very important to try and answer every question as a blank answer will get no marks.

Your IELTS Listening band score contributes to your overall IELTS band score.
