most of the States require 7 in each band.. some even requires 6.. it depends on ur profession.. you can check this requirement on the site of your designated state. just google it. and if ur agent is telling u that u need 8 it will most probably be because you get 20 points for 8 in each band in IELTS and 10 points for 7 in each band.. you need to get at least 65 points in the points test..

Have you done the points test on DIAC's website? What is your score?

I am sure you must have double checked. If that is the score then you don't require 8 in IELTS.

I need 8 in writing!!! Previously got 7:(
May I ask under what occupation are you applying and to which state. Your score of 7 in each seems perfect as your points are equal to cut-off. I thought for most profession 7 is the minimum required. So curious to see which one needs an 8.

Just done IELTS again today fingers crossed for my results
I assume you too are aiming band 8. How often are you sitting for the test ?

I guess I thought getting 8 in each bands is just impossible for me. I took three writing classes. All one to one. Now, my teacher thinks I'm a strong 7-7.5. But not an 8 yet. I still sat for the test. My result is 8.5 8.5 7 8.

Not sure, when should I sit for the test again. Any suggestions ?

Good luck with your test :)
