Unhappy IELTS appeal

Have anyone appealed for review of band in IELTS?

I have justed received my result of IELTS and my band in the Speaking part is only 5. The band for the other parts are above 6.
I can only get 15 points in English language ability, that is not enough for me to get the passing mark 115.

Is it hard for non-native English speaker to got 6 or above in the IELTS speaking part ?

Derek.

No, it is not hard to get 6, 7 or 8. Someone I know who speaks reasonably good English as a second language got 7.5 average on a bad day (terrible flu).

My advice is to practise your spoken English and try IELTS again at the next opportunity. Definitely not worth appealing as the marking system is fairly formulaic and if you failed, you failed. The good news is that you can take the test as many times as you like, it's not very expensive and it only delays your PR application by a short time.

Yes, but you have to wait 3 months between each test.
