What is IELTS?
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test of English language proficiency intended for non-native speakers who are to study or work in an English-speaking environment. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is an internationally-recognised system for testing English language skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking. The test measures students’ abilities in all four skill categories – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Since its introduction in 1989, IELTS has become one of the most trusted forms of English-language assessment in the World. Unlike certain other tests, IELTS testing methods focus on the candidate’s real, practical ability to use in English in life situations.
You can choose from two types of IELTS test: Academic or General Training, depending on whether you want to study, work or migrate. Both modules are made up of four parts – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. IELTS results are graded on the unique IELTS 9-band scale.
The score is normally valid for two years.
