What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration. It assesses all of your English skills — listening, reading, writing and speaking and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.

IELTS is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on-one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. This means that you are assessed by having a real-life conversation with a real person. This is the most effective and natural way of testing your English conversation skills.
There are two versions of the IELTS:

(1) Academic Version: The Academic Version is intended for those who want to enrol in universities and other institutions of higher education.

(2) General Training Version: The General Training Version is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.

There are four modules in each test- Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking


This will test your ability to understand spoken language in a variety of social and academic contexts and dialects. This, being basic skill to any language, needs careful attention. This is the first section in the IELTS. A pre-recorded listening module is played on a tape in the examination room. The tape is played only once with pauses wherever required. Candidates are given a question paper. As they listen to the tape, they should write their answers on the question paper. At the end of the test, candidates are given 10 minutes to transfer their answers to the answer sheet.


Being able to read and grasp the true meaning certifies you as able user of the language. Good reading skills are vital assets for anyone.



In this section, you are tested for your writing skills. In assessing your performance in the writing test, the examiner considers your performance in following skill areas:
  •         Legible Handwriting
  •         Presentation and Organization
  •        Formation of grammatically correct sentences
  •       There are two tasks for each module
  •         Academic (Essay & Graph)
  •        General (Essay & Letter)

In present era, effective communication skills are a pre-requisite for any individual venturing out to make a mark in this competitive world. The examiner will call you for one to one interview and hence your speaking skills will be tested.
