The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an English language test for study, migration or work.  IELTS is widely accepted by employers, universities, schools and immigration bodies around the world. It is an internationally recognised qualification and entry requirement for universities in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland.

IELTS is developed to provide a fair and accurate assessment of English language proficiency. The IELTS test content reflects everyday situations. It is believed to be unbiased and fair to all test takers from all backgrounds. Your ability to listen, read, write and speak in English will be assessed during the test. IELTS is graded on a scale of 1-9.

IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English.

IELTS Modules:

The IELTS consists of four modules: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. There are two types of test formats available such as Academic and General Training (GT). The Listening and Speaking modules are same for both tests while the Reading and Writing modules are different for Academic and General Training.

Score Scale:

IELTS is scored on a nine-band scale, with each band corresponding to a specified competence in English. Overall Band Scores are reported to the nearest half band. The following rounding convention applies: if the average across the four skills ends in .25, it is rounded up to the next half band, and if it ends in .75, it is rounded up to the next whole band.

IELTS Test Format:

Listening (30 minutes)

You will listen to four recordings of native English speakers and then write your answers to a series of questions.

Recording 1:       A conversation between two people set in an everyday social context.

Recording 2:       A monologue set in an everyday social context, e.g. a speech about local facilities.

Recording 3:       A conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context, e.g. a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment.

Recording 4:       A monologue on an academic subject, e.g. a university lecture.

No. of questions: 40

Marks: Each question is worth 1 mark.

Speaking (11–14 minutes)

The speaking component assesses your use of spoken English. Every test is recorded.

Part 1:   The examiner will ask you general questions about yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as home, family, work, studies and interests. This part lasts between four and five minutes.

Part 2:   You will be given a card that asks you to talk about a particular topic. You will have one minute to prepare before speaking for up to two minutes. The examiner will then ask one or two questions on the same topic.

Part 3:   You will be asked further questions about the topic in Part 2. These will give you the opportunity to discuss more abstract ideas and issues. This part of the test lasts between four and five minutes.

Reading (60 minutes)

The Reading component consists of 40 questions, designed to test a wide range of reading skills. These include reading for gist, reading for main ideas, reading for detail, skimming, understanding logical arguments and recognising writers’ opinions, attitudes and purpose.

IELTS Academic test:  This includes three long texts which range from the descriptive and factual to the discursive and analytical. These are taken from books, journals, magazines and newspapers. They have been selected for a non-specialist audience but are appropriate for people entering university courses or seeking professional registration.

IELTS General Training test: This includes extracts from books, magazines, newspapers, notices, advertisements, company handbooks and guidelines. These are materials you are likely to encounter on a daily basis in an English-speaking environment.
