Hi aram,

Our level test isn't designed to be a definitive level test, but rather a tool to help our users find useful content on our site. So I would recommend checking your level using other tests as well to be sure that you have an accurate idea of your level.

This page that shows the correspondence between CEFR levels and the different IELTS bands. As you can see, it is not exact, but I hope that it helps you get an idea.

All the best,
