I just received my IELTS results and once again they have left me just close enough to my required band which makes me questions the credibility of this overall system. I have been taking this exam for past 2 months and so far I have taken this exam 3-4 times. I need 8 bands each for immigration purpose and in my first two exams my average was 7.5. In my last exam I received L.8.5, R.7.5, W.8, and S.7. Since I needed 8 overall I decided to take this exam again and this time I've got L.8,R.8,W.7,S.8. This makes me wonder how many time more will I have to prove my proficiency in English to this Institute before they give me 8 each. Is there anyone else out there facing the same problem??
