Wait and see how you got on, but there are alternative tests that others have found easier. Haven't taken it recently, but do have all 9.0's off my second test - I needed all 8.0's for 20 points too but got 7.5 first time on the listening. My own fault - I went straight to the test after a 12 hour night shift. I did also practice a little - looked at the types of questions to expect, and the quality of writing they expected for an 8.0.

Good luck with the wait

If you don't make it in IELTS, you can give PTE Academic a try.

You can find advice on Youtube. The British Council website also has free practice materials.
