What is IELTS?

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is designed to assess the Language ability of one who desires to study and work or migrate to countries where English is Primary Language of all Social Exchange. IELTS is jointly managed worldwide by Cambridge ESOL, British Council and IDP Education Australia.

Why it is Required?

Candidates who want to study or migrate in countries such as UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore are required to take the IELTS exam as proof of their English Language proficiency.

IELTS is accepted by more than 6000 organisations worldwide. These include universities, immigration departments, government agencies, professional bodies and multinational companies.

IELTS has two versions – Academic and General Training. The Academic test is for those who want to study at a tertiary level in an English-speaking country. The General Training test is for those who want to do work experience or training programs, secondary school or migrate to an English-speaking country. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests but different Reading and Writing tests.

IELTS has four parts – Listening (30 minutes), Reading (60 minutes), Writing (60 minutes) and Speaking (11–14 minutes). The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The Listening, Reading and Writing tests are done in one sitting. The Speaking test may be on the same day or up to seven days before or after the other tests.

IELTS is available on 48 fixed dates a year – up to four times a month, depending on local demand.

There is no limit on sitting the test. However, IELTS recommends you do additional study before taking the test again. Some test centres offer preparatory courses and language classes. You can also improve your skills by using the IELTS Official Practice Materials – ask for details.

You can apply for an ‘enquiry on results’ procedure at your test centre within six weeks of the test date. You must pay an enquiry fee, which is fully refunded if your band score changes. Note that IELTS Examiners and markers follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored. The IELTS testing process has the highest quality control procedures.
