This thread might help you..thanks Prashant!
really appreciate it.
i have two options in mind:
i am planning to submit my documents to EA with my present scores:
L-8, W-7.5, S-8, R-6.5 and wait for their reply. hopefully a positive assessment.
then i'll re-take ielts to get 7 in all exams before i submit to diac.
i'll appeal my score to ielts, risking my chance if they'll give me a 7 in reading. if my score was changed then that's the time i'll submit to EA and eventually to diac.
but what could be my chance of getting the 7 for reading? is it worth it to appeal or to re-sit the exam?
I think, not sure though, that Listening and Reading tests are checked electronically while Writing is checked manually. Don't get frustrated, sometimes things just don't go the way we want it but there is always hope. Try the suggestion given by prasant and I think it's what's best to do right now. EA only requires 6 points in each band in IELTS. Btw, without the IELTS, how much score can you get? May I know your occupation? Only 60 pts. is required for you to apply for PR visa.thanks lightningmcqueen!
i'm just wondering how are they checking our papers? is it checked manually or by a computer?
the scores i've given above is the result of my 2nd test.
the scores i got when i first tried were: L-7.5, W-6.0, S-7.0, R-8
that is why i'm kind of frustrated. my writing got better but then i don't know what happened
in my reading exam... :-(
