Hello Anjali, Hope you doing good!

So, when it comes to the IELTS exam, a Band 4.5 is considered a bit on the lower side. 

While it may be accepted by some institutions or organizations, it might not meet the requirements for many universities or immigration purposes. Generally, a higher score is preferred, especially if you're aiming for admission to competitive programs or institutions. 

However, there are some universities or programs that may accept lower scores, particularly if you're able to demonstrate proficiency in other ways or if you're willing to take additional English language courses. 

It's always a good idea to check the specific requirements of the institution or organization you're applying to to determine if your score meets their criteria.

Hey! So, you're asking if a 4.5 in IELTS is a pass? Well, IELTS doesn't really say "pass" or "fail." A 4.5 means you know some English, but it's pretty basic. 

Now, regarding whether Band 4.5 is a "pass" or not, it's essential to understand that IELTS itself does not have a pass or fail system. It's all about meeting the requirements set by the institutions or organizations you're applying to. Some may require a higher band score, while others might find Band 4.5 acceptable, especially for certain visa applications or less intensive courses.

So, my advice? Check the specific requirements of the course or institution you're aiming for. If your score is a bit on the lower side for your goals, don't worry! It's an opportunity for growth. There are plenty of resources and preparation courses available to help you improve your score. 
I've seen it happen. Keep at it!
