Score Reporting – Candidates receive a Test Report Form that details their Overall Band Score and the scores they have achieved in the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking sections. The scores of each section are equally important. The Overall Band Score, thereby, is calculated by averaging the scores of the individual sections.
