The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assesses the English proficiency of students and working professionals who want to either study or work in countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, the USA and countries where English is the primary medium of communication.
The test uses a nine-band rating system to evaluate people for their English proficiency. As per their performance in the IELTS English test, performance scores are calculated. The test result ranges from band score 1 (non-user) to band score 9 (expert).
IELTS Test Types
There are two versions of the IELTS test.
Academic: This is for individuals who want to pursue higher education or apply for professional registration.
General Training: This IELTS test is primarily for those who want to migrate to the UK, Australia or Canada, or apply for training programmes, secondary education or work experience in an English-speaking country.
Both the tests cover the four most useful aspects of language learning: listening, reading, writing and speaking.
