Ielts requirement for London school of economicsWatch
I had to take the ielts to be able to apply for London school of economics. The minimum requirements were a 7 overall (out of 9) and 6.5 for each section. I managed to get an 8 overall with grades above 8 for listening, speaking and reading. However I got a 6 in writing (due to lack of sleep before taking the test). So, do I have to take the test again or can the university be lenient with that.
The standard IELTS (Academic) requirement is 7.0 overall, with a 7.0 overall and a 6.5 in the Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking sections. As your current Writing score does not fulfil this requirement, if you are made an offer, you will need to re-take IELTS or obtain an alternative accepted English language qualification.
