Default Skilled Migrant IELTS Requirement

I am totally confused about the IELTS wording. Can anybody help me to understand what this url says about IELTS

http://www.immigration.govt.nz/opsmanual/41495.htm

It says overall band score of at least 6.5 in the IELTS General or Academic Module.

Does it means 6.5 in each module or (R+L+S+W) / 4 with some rounding algorithm?

It's the average of the four scores as I understand it, so you could achieve and overall 6.5 in any variety of combinations e.g. (8+7+6+5)/4 = 6.5

It is the average, not for each band. 6.5 average or what we call " Overall Band". i think it is quite easy to get 6.5 overall
