IELTS LSE/Kings


Dear all,

I got an overall band score of 7 on ielts. Considering Kings and Lse ask for a 7,5 overall, do you still think I have a chance to receive an offer?

thank you

Especially for LSE, I've been told that if you have good overall credentials (good recommendation letters, etc.), they give you a conditional offer, like a second chance test. Don't know for Kings...

I recommend you to submit your application and reschedule your test.

Hi guys,

I scored 7,5 overall, achieving 8 in reading and listening, 7,5 in speaking but only 6,5 in writing, The requirement is minimum band score 7 from all parts of the test. Do you think they would require me to retake the test?

Thank you!

I've given this example before - My wife had a conditional offer from Kings. The condition was: meet the minimum IELTS requirement (7 overall with no less than 7 in any band). She took the IELTS three times. She got the minimum overall mark in all three attempts; however, she would always get one part below the 7 mark. If you combined all her three scores, considering the highest grades in each band of each test attempt, she would have 7 overall with 7 in each band. She sent an email to Kings saying she would have to decline the offer because she didn't achieve the minimum IELTS score. Kings replied saying they would consider a combination of all her scores and would make her offer unconditional. That goes to show that they are somewhat flexible about the IELTS. If you're having IELTS problems, contact the school and see if they can help you out...

Hey guys!

Just wanted to give a few words of comfort - testing your English is not always objective or reflective of the actual knowledge. Writing always comes as a toughest one but do not be afraid to send in the scores and ask! Last year a friend of mine got a conditional for Cambridge, got 106 instead of 110 on TOEFL and still got accepted without having to retake the test - so, there is no need to be shy just ask before retaking the test. Additionally, all of these great universities require students and payment of high tuition fees to keep running - I still haven't heard that someone who is a great overall candidate got rejected because of a point or two lower on IELTS or TOEFL exam...;)

Hello,

I've got exactly the same problem, I scored 8 at the IELTS but only 6.5 in writing. Do you guys had an answer from LSE ? I tried to reach them but I have no answer yet.

Thank you for your help !

Hi

There are many books written specifically for the writing section. Find them and read them, they helped me. Also, many test centres offer language courses and usually they offer separate courses for each section (at least for writing in my case). This is really good as the teachers are usually ex-examinators, they will show you the right approach.

Hope this helps

Hi Diana,

Did they send you an email confirming their acceptance to your score or they just changed the status in the application tracker?

Guys, do you think LSE would consider an application from someone who already has a Master Degree? I earned a Master of Comparative Law in the U.S., but now I'm searching for something in banking regulation, like their LL.M. Another question is: I don't have the 8 out of 10 required for my postgraduation grades, but my Master's GPA is of 3.854, well above their threshold. Do you think they will consider my eventual application?
