IELTS Overview

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is used as the language of communication. IELTS is jointly managed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), British Council and IDP: IELTS Australia. IELTS conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment. It is recognized by over 9,000 organizations worldwide, including universities, employers, professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies.

Candidates take the Listening, Reading and Writing tests together on one day followed by the Speaking test on a different day.

IELTS Academic: This version of the test is for those who want to study at tertiary level in an English-speaking country or seek professional registration. The test focuses on whether you can communicate effectively in English across a range of different situations.

IELTS General Training: This version of the test is for those who want to migrate to an English-speaking country (for example, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK). It assesses your ability to communicate in daily life, social and workplace contexts.

IELTS Test Format

The IELTS test assesses your abilities in listening, reading, writing and speaking – in less than three hours. Here’s how the test is structured:

Listening (30 minutes) – You will listen to four recordings of native English speakers and then write your answers to a series of questions.

Reading (60 minutes) – You will read texts on a variety of topics and then answer questions based on the information you have read.

Writing (60 minutes) – You will be presented with two writing tasks of 150 and 250 words, where you will be asked to express your opinion on a particular topic.

Speaking (11–14 minutes) – You will take part in a face-to-face interview with a certified IELTS examiner. The interviewer will ask you questions about familiar topics, such as your family, home, work/study, interests and hobbies.

IELTS Scores

IELTS results are reported on a nine-band scale, with each band corresponding to a specified competence in English. Overall, IELTS results are available 13 calendar days after the test.
