Tackling IELTS Test
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is for non-native students who want to study at universities in countries where the medium of teaching is English (except the United States). IELTS measures a candidate’s level of proficiency in English.
In addition, the test is also accepted by employers, professional bodies, government departments and immigration authorities.
IELTS test results are reported on a band scale from 1 (beginner) to 9 (native). Depending on the country, top universities will require a score of 6.5 – 7, and in some cases where academic excellence is required, this might go up to 8.5.
The exam can be taken in three different versions:
This version, which is the more popular one, is for applying for a student visa, mainly to study at an English speaking country’s university. Therefore it’s based on academic English and requires the candidates to accurately use and interpret information that they would typically encounter at university, including passages and graphs from a range of subjects and topics.

This version is mainly designed for visa and / or immigration purposes for those seeking work experience, training programmes or secondary education abroad. The General IELTS differs from the Academic version in the reading and writing papers, since it focuses more on a communicative approach and requires candidates to answer questions based on real life situations, including basic survival skills in broad social and workplace situations.
