IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It is the world’s number one English language test, taken by over 1 million people every year from across the world.
Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic and customer-focused test which is a reliable indicator of a candidate’s ability to communicate in English.
IELTS has been developed by the British Council in partnership with IELTS Australia and Cambridge ESOL on the strength of forty years of research.
There are two versions of the IELTS test:
IELTS Academic Module
The academic module of IELTS is for students seeking entry to a university or institution of higher education offering degree and diploma courses.
IELTS General Training Module
The General Training Module of IELTS is for students seeking entry to a secondary school or to vocational training courses. This module is also for the candidates who want to apply for the immigration of Australia, New Zealand or United Kingdom under HSMP.
All candidates must take the IELTS test for each of the four skills:
listening, reading, writing and speaking.
All IELTS candidates take the same Listening and Speaking modules but may choose between the IELTS Academic or General Training versions of the Reading and Writing sections of the test. You should seek advice from a teacher or a student adviser if you are in any doubt about whether to sit for the Academic modules or the General Training modules.
These two do not carry the same weight and are not interchangeable.
