Score Info:

IELTS is designed to assess English language skills across a wide range of levels. There is no pass or fail in IELTS. Results are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest). An overall band of 5.5 in IELTS Academic will exempt applicants from the Foundation Program English courses.
IELTS test scores for the candidates tested in Qatar University Testing Center will be available on the 13th day and they can collect their test scores from the QUTC Registration Office after that. Scores will be automatically uploaded to BANNER,  the student information system for each candidate who gets an overall band score of 5.5 or above.
In contrast, for the candidates who tested at some other test center (other than QUTC), they will have to submit the original copy to QUTC Document Controller in the Men's Foundation Building (A06), room # 109. Additionally, they may request the other test center to send their test scores to Qatar University Test Center.
