    Hi Ryan,

    I’m struggling for 7 bands since last one year and she achieved 7.5 at 11.
    I didn’t even know what IELTS was when I was 11 but I scored L-8,R-6.5,W-7,S-7 O/L-7 and I’m 30 🙂

    bravo girl !

    That’s truly a motivating story for all of us. I never knew that such younger kids are allowed to take the test. Seems to be that there is no age restriction in Ielts.
