What is the 'pass mark' for the IELTS test?

In the IELTS Life Skills test, your results are given as a pass or fail mark. There is no pass or fail in IELTS Academic or General Training test. Scores are graded on the 9-band system. Each educational institution or organisation sets its own level of IELTS scores to meet its individual requirements.
