The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English proficiency test. More than 9,000 organisations around the world accept IELTS, including Government, academic and employment institutions. In fact, IELTS is the only English language test accepted for immigration purposes by all countries that require one.
IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment and conducts tests in more than 900 test centres and locations in over 130 countries.
The IELTS tests the language ability of candidates who want to study or work in countries where English is the primary language of communication.
IELTS is a paper based test and has two modules – Academic and General Training. The Academic test is for those who want to study at a under graduate, graduate or post graduate level. The General Training test is for those who want to migrate to an English-speaking country, work or enrol for various training programs.
IELTS has four parts – Listening (30 mins/ 40 questions), Reading (60 mins/ 40 questions), Writing (60 mins/ 2 topics) and Speaking (11–14 minutes). The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests but Reading and Writing tests differ depending on the module chosen. The Listening, Reading and Writing tests are done in one sitting without a break. The Speaking test may be on the same day or up to seven days before or after the other tests.
Results are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest). 1 means the candidate is a non user and 9 is for an expert user of the language.
Candidates are scored for each part – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The results from all the four parts then give an Overall Band Score. Scores for IELTS are valid for 2 years.
