What is IELTS?

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System and the test was taken by over 3 million candidates in the past 12 months. IELTS is available in more than 135 countries and IELTS results are accepted by more than 10,000 organisations and institutions worldwide. This makes IELTS the world's most popular high-stakes test, accepted for entry to education, employment and migration. IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.

IELTS tests all four language skills - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking - and is available in two test versions:

  • Academic
  • General Training

All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests but the Academic and General versions have different Reading and Writing tests. The Speaking Test is done face-to-face with a trained an experienced Examiner who will help you through the test process. You will not just be having a one-sided conversation with a computer screen. 

For more information about the the test you can download the official Information for Candidates booklet

The General Training test is usually used for immigration purposes; the Academic test is more used for professional regisration and higher education entry. The test centre cannot advise which module to take or what score is needed. Test takers should check with their Recognising Organisation (e.g. immigration department, Nurses Board, university admissions department etc.) to see which module to take and what score is required.

The IELTS nine (9) band score system grades scores consistently. It is secure, benchmarked and understood worldwide. Test materials are designed carefully so that every version of the test is of a comparable level of difficulty.
