The International English Language Testing System - IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication and instruction. It covers four basic language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. IELTS is managed by three reputable, international organizations - British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL).
IELTS is a compulsory exam for admission into universities and coaching programs in UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
Test pattern: There are two formats of the test – Academic and General training.
Academic Training – for Institutions of Higher and Further Education
The Academic training format is, broadly speaking, for those who want to study or train in an English-speaking university or Institutions of Higher and Further Education. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of the Academic test.
General Training – for school, work or migration
The General Training format focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts. It is typical for those who are going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or training programs. People migrating to Australia, Canada, and New Zealand must sit the General Training test for IELTS. It should be noted that certain professions require an Academic test result for registration and migration purposes. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking modules but different Reading and Writing modules.
The TOEFL iBT™ test, administered in an internet-based format, is an important part of your journey to study in an English-speaking country. In addition to the test, the ETS TOEFL Program provides tools and guides to help you prepare for the test and improve your English-language skills.
