I did not know your page beforehand, and I could only check the information the week of the test.

I just got back my IELTS test scores: Listening 7.5, Reading 7, Writing 5.5, Speaking 6.5.

My whole problem was the writing. I guess I made many grammar errors without noticing. I need at least a 6 in each category to apply for visa immigration to Canada. So, I will have to take the test again.

I’m going to take the test again at the end of the year. I’m now looking for advice on how I should proceed to meet my goal.
