IELTS band score calculator

This is just a brief post to announce that I have added an interactive reading and listening band score calculator to the site. As you are preparing and practising tests  it is obviously useful to check your progress. I have also added information and links to explain what the band scores mean.

The calculator can be found here: online band score calculator.

    I am wondering about score calculator, I mean is it a fixed calaculator by IELTS organisation or just some predictions?

      The calculator is not 100% exact – it is, however, very close to the calculations made by IELTS. It cannot be exact as there are no hard and fast guidelines here. Scores may be changed on the basis of individual papers.
