International English Language Testing System, IELTS, is a standardized test that assesses the proficiency level of English Language, for non-native English Language speakers. IELTS is accepted in over 10,000 colleges and other institutions. IELTS is a standardized test that is both computer-based as well as paper-based. Accepted by many English-speaking academic and professional institutions, IELTS is one of the two major English-Language tests, the other being TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). 

IELTS is available in two modules: 

  1. Academic Training: This is for people applying for higher education or professional registration
  2. General Training: This is for people who are migrating to Australia, Canada or the UK, or are applying for secondary education, training programs, and work experience in an English-speaking environment. 

The test time for an IELTS exam is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The test is offered up to 4 times in a month. The scores of an IELTS exam remain valid for 2 years. IELTS is reported as band scores from 1 to 9, 1 being the lowest and 9 the highest. An IELTS exam tests the following skills to assess the proficiency of the English Language in a candidate: 

  1. Listening 
  2. Reading
  3. Writing
  4. Speaking

The Listening, Reading, and Writing sections of an IELTS Exam are given on the same day without any breaks in between them. However, the Speaking section can be taken up to a week before or after the test.  

IELTS is administered by the British Council, IDP Education, and Cambridge Assessment English.
