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. It
covers the four language skills-listening, reading, writing and speaking.
IELTS has two modules : General Training and Academic. The General Training module is usually
taken by people who want to emigrate, and the Academic module is taken by people who want to study
abroad. It is essential that you check with the receiving country or institution to find out which module
you need to take. It is your responsibility to choose the right module.
PURPOSE OF IELTS
If you're planning to go abroad, to undertake further study, to undertake non-academic training or work
experience, to emigrate or if you simply want to test your real English ability, then IELTS, the test of
real English communicative ability, will ensure that you have the right level of English for your needs.
FORMAT OF THE EXAM

Candidates are tested in listening, reading, writing and speaking. All candidates take the same Listening
and Speaking Modules. There is a choice between Academic and General Training in the Reading and
Writing Modules.
The total test time, excluding the speaking test, is two hours and 45 minutes. Your speaking test may
be on the same day as the other parts, or on a different day.
