The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the most popular English exam for people wanting to work and study in English-speaking settings.

Each year, more than 1.5 million candidates sit the IELTS test as a launching pad for their educational and professional career.

Educational institutions, companies, professional associations and immigration departments often require a test of English language skill in their selection or admission procedures.

The IELTS is widely accepted for these purposes.

Types

There are two types of test:

  1. IELTS General Training – for people wanting to live and work in an English-speaking country or study at a pre-university level.
  2. IELTS Academic – for people wanting to study in an English-speaking country at university level.

Both exams have the same listening and speaking part but different reading and writing sections.
