    Hi there,

    does anyone have any experience with getting accepted to the Uni of Glasgow with IELTS 5.5 in one of the individual bands? My boyfriend received his results today and it's Overall band 6.5 with Listening 6.5, Reading 7, Speaking 6.5 and Writing 5.5. The official requirements are overall band at least 6.5 with no individual band less than 6.0. Is there a possibility that he gets accepted if his Writing is half a point lower than requirements? Thanks

    It'll really depend on how strict the uni is and whether it's a uni requirement or an immigration requirement. Your best bet is to email the uni and ask. They're the best people to advise.
