What is the pass mark of IELTS?


There is no fixed pas mark in IELTS. The institution you want to enter will decide whether your score is appropriate for the demands of the course of study or training you want to undertake. However, as a general rule, scores below Band
5 in any one skill are considered too low for academic study.
