You manage easily enough in quite complex and demanding situations. There are lapses in accuracy in complex situations but communication is easily restored.

LIMITED USER

IELTS Band Description

The user ‘has frequent problems in understanding and expression and is not able to use complex language’. Band 4 is not usually accepted for either work or study in English-speaking counties, but if you get this band, or a 4.5, it shows that you don’t have so far to go.

MODEST USER A band 5 user ‘should be able to handle basic communication in their own field’. This band indicates someone whose English might not be good enough for all the situations they might find themselves in, but sometimes a band 5 is accepted for working in computer programming or certificate courses.

COMPETENT USER

The user ‘can use fairly complex language, particularly in familiar situations’. At this level, you should be able to travel, work and study in an English-speaking country, although you may sometimes have difficulties. You will be accepted band 5.5 or higher for tertiary study.

GOOD USER

The user can ‘generally handle complex language well and understand detailed reasoning’. This is the kind of level you should be aiming for if you are applying for a university place in an English-speaking country, especially at post-graduate level.
