      Hi Sanjip,

      Unfortunately, we don’t have nearly as much expertise and experience in graduate school admissions as we do with test prep, so I’m afraid we can’t be of much help. That said, I’d recommend directly contacting the schools/programs you’re interested in to see if they can offer any insight, or check out the programs’ websites to see if they have any info! This website is also a great place to start your research: Best Grad Schools.

      I hope this helps, at least a little 🙂

          Hi Asrokhon,

          Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions or scholarship advice, so I’m afraid that we aren’t the best people to answer this question. I encourage you to contact the admissions directors of your target universities to ask about their scholarship options and requirements. Good luck!

      I have got overall 6 band …..listening 6….speaking 6.5….writing 6….reading 5…..i have done my graduation with 59 % how much possibility of to get my admission

      • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
        Magoosh Test Prep Expert September 7, 2017 at 9:59 am #

        It’s hard to get accepted into any major Australian universities if you have a 5 in any section. So you’ll ideally want to resit the exam and get a higher IELTS Reading score before you apply. As for your graduation at 59%, I recommend talking to admissions advisers at the universities you’re applying to, to see what 59% form your country would translate to in the Australian system.

      Hi Sagar, congrats on taking the IELTS 🙂 We’re not admission experts here at Magoosh, so unfortunately, we can’t be of too much help here. With that in mind, I recommend looking up the IELTS score requirements for the schools/programs you’re interested in. If you can’t find that information in the admission section of the university’s website, I’d suggest contacting the school directly to see what their requirements are 🙂 I hope this helps, at least a little!

    Hi, I am a nursing student my overall ielts score is 5.5 and not less than 5.0 in each. Is there any higher school that can give me admission

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert May 27, 2017 at 6:36 am #

      5.5, with 5.0 in some sections, is a bit low. With those lower IELTS scores, your best shot at nursing school would be to look for an English-language nursing degree program in a non-English speaking country. (Many universities outside the English-speaking world offer English-language degree programs.)

      You may also want to look into options for conditional acceptance. Under conditional acceptance, you can be accepted into a degree program even though your English testing scores are lower than required. In this case, you’ll need to take some English classes before you begin your regular nursing classes. If that sounds like it might be a good choice for you, read Magoosh’s article about TOEFL scores and conditional acceptance— the rules are exactly the same for IELTS scores.

          Hi Chinu,

          Congratulations on finishing your IELTS! We do not offer admissions services and we are not experts on schools you can enter with X score. I suggest asking nursing communities online and starting to research good programs for nursing to see what they require. Good luck! 🙂

  5. vishal May 27, 2017 at 7:24 am #

    Hi , I HAVE Scored Ielts Overall 5. so will i be able to apply any where for highers

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert May 29, 2017 at 12:36 am #

      5 is a little bit low. However, there are certainly some decent mid-tier universities that will accept students who got a 5 on the IELTS. This is especially true if you apply to an English language degree program in a non-English speaking country. (Such as a bachelors in engineering, taught in English, but hosted at an Italian university. You get the idea. 🙂 )

      With an IELTS score of 5, you may also be able to get conditional acceptance, even at a top university. If you receive conditional acceptance, you’ll be able to enter a degree program. But you’ll also be asked to take some classes that help you improve your English. For more info about conditional acceptance, check out this article on the Magoosh TOEFL Blog. (Conditional acceptance works in the same way for TOEFL and IELTS scores!)

    HI,
    I got overall 6 band in IELTS, whereas R5.5, S6, W5.5, L6.5. and I’m having good academic score 8.4 CGPA with 2 yrs of experience . Could you suggest me some good universities for this score.

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 5, 2017 at 11:02 am #

      As you can see in this post, a 6.0 band IELTS will get you into many of the top universities listed here. With that decent GPA and some relevant work experience, you’ll also have a shot at most lower-ranking top schools in Australia, and all of the mid-ranked schools.

  7. advait kulkarni July 7, 2017 at 1:22 am #

    I secured overall 7 marks in IELTS Exam . I am BE – Information Technology from Pune University . I have one year Post Graduation Experience in Top class IT company in Pune.

    I wish to join Australian University for PG course ( MS) in 2017-18.

    Which university having high rank in IT Engineering suits me well? which are the course available?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 11, 2017 at 5:36 pm #

      These are some very good questions. To be honest, I’m not completely sure, since Magoosh tends to focus its content and advice on American, Canadian, and UK schools. What I do know is that the Australian Education Network has a ranking system that’s well-trusted by international students. I recommend starting your research on the top engineering schools at their rankings page.

      As for your score– a mark of 7 throughout each section of the test is quite good and should serve you well at any school you apply to. 🙂

      • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
        Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 11, 2017 at 5:25 pm #

        With that score, you’d likely need to do some English courses before beginning regular degree classes… at least in the top universities on this list. (Wollongong’s policies do vary from program to program, but they generally want more than 5 in Reading for any major.)

        However, there’s a chance that some lower-ranked Australian unis may accept you with your current scores. Check around, but be prepared to possibly take some extra English in Australia before you begin your regular studies.

      Hi Shirley,

      Have you contacted any admissions departments to get their input? Immigration and visa requirements are not our speciality, and the university will know the most current requirements and concessions available.

  10. piyush August 31, 2017 at 6:51 am #

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert September 7, 2017 at 11:12 am #

      The top Australian universities in this list need more than a 5 in Speaking. However, there may be other Australian universities that would take you. I recommend checking other Australian universities to see if you meet their standards. And of course, be ready to retake the IELTS if need be. If you can raise your Speaking band by just one point,many more options will open up to you.

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert September 7, 2017 at 10:50 am #

      To my knowledge, Melbourne has a strict requirement of at least 6 in all individual IELTS sections. So you’ll probably need to improve your IELTS Reading score. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to contact Melbourne admissions and ask them if they can consider you, based on your graduation at 64.2% and your 71 in English. The worst they could say is “no.”

      Hi Harshdeep,

      A 5.5 band overall is often not quite high enough to get you where you want to be, so I would advise working toward a re-write. Your 80% marks are strong, but the IELTS score is sometimes not a negotiable part of your application package. Wishing you luck! 🙂

      As you can see, those scores don’t work for Australia’s very top schools. However, there are some low-ranked but still-good schools you may have a chance with. The one thing that sticks out, though, is your Reading score of 5. If you can retake the IELTS and boost your Reading to 5.5, you’ll be able to get into many additional schools. With your current scores, your school options are somewhat limited, and you might be asked to take some English classes first before you start your regular degree classes. Check with individual Australian schools to see what their rules are.

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert January 18, 2018 at 1:49 pm #

      Those scores are on the lower end for Masters degree program in acceptance in Australia. However, graduate admissions depend on many different factors, and you may have a chance of acceptance in some programs. My advice would be to carefully look at the admissions websites for programs you’re interested in. You may want to also directly contact admissions offices for advice on whether you can be considered. And of course, a retake wouldn’t hurt. If you can raise your scores by at least half a band in the Writing, Listening, and Reading, your chances of admission increase considerably.

There are a lot of factors that go into the decision of admissions for a master’s degree.

I recommend that you contact the schools directly to see what they look for in their graduate students 🙂 Good luck!

  26. Mustafa February 17, 2018 at 4:36 pm #

    My overall score is 6. Writing 6, listening 6, speaking 6, and reading 6. Do you think I have any chance to be accepted in PhD degree in civil engineering at an australian university!?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert February 18, 2018 at 1:53 pm #

      With a 6 in IELTS rather than a 6.5, it would probably be a little difficult to get into most civil engineering doctorates in Australia. However, it doesn’t hurt to check around and see if there’s a program that may accept you. There are only 43 universities in all of Australia, and of those, only some have the program you’re looking for. So it’s very possible to go through the official full list of Australian unis, check for civil engineering PhDs, and check the requirements. You may even want to email or call admissions offices and see if they can accept you with your score, even if they list a higher minimum. If you have a strong professional background or some peer-reviewed research to your name, it increases your chances of acceptance. Of course, retaking the IELTS to see if you can boost your score by half a band may be worthwhile as well.

    Respected Sir/Mam
    I want to proceed my bachelor level . My IELTS score is 6 ( L-6.5, R-5.5, W-6, S-5.5 ) .I have just completed my +2 level from science faculty. How much possibility is there for me to get admission in nursing?Is that true that from June/july only the students scoring overall 7 can apply for nursing? And is that true that embassy will been rejecting visa from june/july?

      Hi Diva,

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions advice, so I’m afraid that I don’t have a good answer to your question! We provide this general information for students who are applying for schools and taking the IELTS, but we don’t have any specific information about the requirements for different nursing schools or the visa process. Sorry about that! I recommend that you research the specific schools that you are interested in to determine their IELTS scores for nursing. Good luck!

      Hi Mahendra,

      According to the information in this blog, these universities all require a band score of at least 6 to be considered for admission. However, these are only a few of the universities in Australia! I recommend that you research some more universities to see if other ones accept a band score of 5.5. Good luck!

      Hi Amandeep. Although those scores are good for the most part, your 5.5 in speaking may be a bit low for Australian universities. If you can get that up to a 6, that will increase your chances of acceptance significantly. Still, there may be some universities and programs that would accpet your scores as-is. Check with individual schools to see if they allow for a 5.5 in Speaking, or can consider you in spite of your 5.5 based on your past academic record and work history.

  31. Himal subedi March 16, 2018 at 11:45 pm #

    Hello sir
    My overall ielts score is 6 which consists
    Listening 6.5
    Writting 6
    Speaking 6
    And reading 5
    And my academic percentage is 60.10
    And i want to apply for Australia
    Do i have chance to get admission ?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert March 18, 2018 at 4:57 pm #

      It’s a little harder to get into an Australian university with a 5 in any one given section. But you may be able to find a mid-tier school that can accept you, or a higher ranked school that could accept under certain circumstances. Your past academic percentage can be taken into account as well. Whether or not a 60.10 will offset your low IELTS reading score depends on what country you’re form. For instance, a 60.10 is impressive in the Indian system, with the way the Indian scales work. But a 60.10 from South Korea (as just one example) would be equivalent to low marks in Australia.

      I recommend checking with universities to see the equivalent of your marks by Australian standards, and to see if your combination of academic record and IELTS score can gain you acceptance.

    Hey..my overall ielts band is 5.5 ..that is soeaking 5.5, reading 5.5, listening 5.5 and writing 6..what are the courses that i could join for?please be kind enough to leave a reply

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert March 23, 2018 at 9:43 am #

      I can tell you that you could likely get conditional acceptance at any Australian university that allows that. (In conditional acceptance, you are asked to take a semester or two of English language classes before you begin your regular degree courses.)

      While 5.5 is low by Australian University standards, it looks like there may be some universities that would accept you at your current level without making you take extra English classes. You’ll find some promising leads in this document of IELTS requirements for different Australian universities. Notice that the document lists several universities as able to accept you with your IELTS scores. You’ll want to double check the website of each university, of course– I know for a fact that some of the info in the document is up-to-date, but other information may be incorrect or outdated.

  33. somik raj shrestha March 23, 2018 at 2:02 am #

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert March 23, 2018 at 9:22 am #

      I would say… probably. You probably have a chance because many universities are willing to be flexible on IELTS scores, especially if the rest of your application is strong. And there may be some mid-tier Australian universities that accepted a lower individual section score as well.

      I would also recommend retaking the test, though. If you can get your Speaking score up by even half a band, that would open a lot more doors for you.

  34. Shogofa March 23, 2018 at 9:46 pm #

    I take the IELTS and I get 5 score and I Know this Score is very less
    I want to apply for student visa by this band score they give me visa??

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert March 24, 2018 at 9:12 am #

      As long as you don’t have less than 5.0 in any one section, there are some Australian universities that will accept you. If that’s the case, carefully read through this document to find promising unis, but be sure to double check with the actual unis to confirm their current standards.

      If you have less than a 5.0 in an individual section, you’ll probably need to retake the IELTS before you can get into a regular degree program in Australia. As for what the immigration office itself would say, to my knowledge Australian Immigration will give a visa to anyone who is accepted into university. I don’t think AU immi would have its own separate IELTS standards that you also have to meet. But you may want to also check with universities you apply to, and ask them if immigration might hold you to a 5.0 even if you’ve been accepted. (Again though, I think that’s unlikely.)

      For that question, I’d refer you to this online PDF. This is a quick overview of the IELTS requirements (by whole test and by individual section) for every major university in Australia. I recently fact-checked this document, and most of the information is up-to-date. For any promising universities from that document, you’ll want to double-check the info on the actual uni website. But this should get you pointed in the right direction.

    I had 7.5 overall (8 on listening, 8.5 reading, 6 for writing and 7 for speaking). I’m from Serbia and I have a Medical School Diploma for nurse (medical tehnician). Despite my score, immigration said that i need to do it again, because i need to have score of 7 for each part of the test. My goal is to enroll university in order to work there like a nurse. Can you give me any advice or solution!

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert March 26, 2018 at 12:40 pm #

      First, congratulations on such a good IELTS score. Second, I’m sorry to hear that Australian Immigration turned you away. Were you actually accepted into a university, and they still turned you away? If your answer to that is “yes,” then I recommend contacting the school that accepted you and seeing if they can work with immigration and make sure you get a student visa. And if immigration turned you away before you got to apply to any school, I recommend applying to a university that accepts your IELTS scores, then coming back to immigration with the acceptance letter.

      If all else fails, though, go for a resit of the IELTS. Your overall skills seem strong, and it sounds like you have a good chance of boosting your writing score with some extra study.

You can look up visa requirements for Australia here, and I recommend that you start to do some research on different universities to find one that fits your needs. According to this chart, the minimal test score for visa purposes is a 5.5, so you may have to improve the reading score.

      We’re not admission experts here at Magoosh, so unfortunately, we can’t be of too much help here. With that in mind, I recommend looking up the IELTS score requirements for the schools/programs you’re interested in. Check out your school’s admissions page, and contact the school directly if you can’t find that information! All of the schools listed here are the top schools in Australia, so there may be more schools that accept lower overall band scores. Good luck 🙂

    • David Recine
      David Recine May 18, 2018 at 1:01 pm #

      That’s a good question, but a tricky one. The relationship between Australian universities and Australian immigration (the government office that actually issues your visa) can be inconsistent. Often, a university acceptance letter is good enough for Australian visa purposes. But in certain cases, immigration may ask for an IELTS score even if your university hasn’t asked for one. Wollongong itself should know what the case is for you. So I’d say contact the program that’s accepted you, and ask them if you still need to show an IELTS score to immigration. It may not hurt to check with the immigration office as well.

      Those scores are on the lower end. Offhand, I don’t know of any Australian Universities that would accept you, although there may be some. Check with individual universities about your current scores. Or try for a retake. If you cam get your overall score up half a point to 60, many Australian schools will open up to you.

      HI Rceey,

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions advice, so we’re not the best people to answer this question! I recommend that you do some research into nursing schools to learn about their admissions requirements. You’ll notice that many of these universities require that all sections be above a certain level, so you may have some trouble with the R 4.5 score.

      If your scores are low, you may also want to look into options for conditional acceptance. Under conditional acceptance, you can be accepted into a degree program even though your English testing scores are lower than required. In this case, you’ll need to take some English classes before you begin your regular nursing classes. If that sounds like it might be a good choice for you, read Magoosh’s article about TOEFL scores and conditional acceptance— the rules are exactly the same for IELTS scores.

      The IELTS Academic exam is accepted by Australian universities, so long as you have a qualifying score (as seen in the score requirements listed in this post). IELTS General training, however, is not accepted by Australian universities… but is acceptable for many types of Australian migrant visas. (As a potentially useful additional note, the TOEFL is accepted both by Australian universities and Australian immigration.)

      To the University of Melbourne, individual band scores do matter n undergraduate courses somewhat.

It looks like you already meet that standard. Congratulations! 🙂 (But be sure to double-check with U Meloborune admissions, just to make sure there haven

      Hi Kajal,

      At that level of score, you likely do have a chance at some Master’s programs in Australia. Exactly which programs? Hard to say, since standards vary from program to program. But if you check around, you should find programs that would take you. To find out which programs you’re eligible for, contact prospective universities or check their websites.

      Hi Ajaya,

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions advice, so I’m afraid we aren’t the best people to answer this question. I recommend that you use this list as a starting point and research other universities to determine their admissions requirements. Good luck!

      Hi Bijay,

      Unfortunately, I do not believe a 4 would leave you eligible for immigration under Australian rules. You should devote your time to preparing for a retake.

      With those scores, you likely could get into many of Australia’s undergraduate nursing programs. You’ll want to check with individual schools to make sure you meet all of the admissions criteria, of course! 🙂

      With those scores, it seems likely that some of the undergraduate nursing programs in Australia would take you in. the more competitive schools might be harder to get into, but it doesn’t hurt to check with them. And it would definitely be worth your while to investigate good mid-tier universities that offer the nursing major. 🙂

      Hi Priyanka,

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions advice, so I’m afraid we aren’t the best people to answer this question. Several of these universities require an overall band score of 6 and not less than 5.5 in each section, so you can definitely apply to some of these schools! For more information, you should research the school’s admissions policy and reach out to their admissions counselors. Good luck!

      Hi Sam,

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions advice, so I’m afraid we aren’t the best people to answer this question. Many of these schools require a minimum score of 5.5 in each section, so you may have to re-take and improve this score for your best chance at admissions. However, I recommend that you do some research to find the specific admissions requirements for your target schools. Good luck!

      In all honesty, this PDF from Scribd is one of the best resources for an overview of your Australian schooling options based on IELTS scores. Check it out, and then be sure to double check on official university websites– most but not all of the info in that PDF is up-to-date.

      Our expertise is in test prep, not admissions and scholarship advice, so I’m afraid we aren’t the best people to answer this question! I encourage you to reach out to the admissions counselors for your target schools to get their insight and advice. Best of luck!
