The International English Language Testing System, which is abbreviated as "IELTS" is owned and jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge Assessment English. It is one of the major English language tests in the world. IELTS exam is designed to assess a candidate's ability to handle English and his/her proficiency in the English language. Though the native English speakers can take this test, it is primarily designed for the non-native English language speakers who want to enrol in a college/ university or want to migrate to a country where English is necessary.

More than 3 million test takers take IELTS in more than 140 different countries and the number is increasing! IELTS is recognised worldwide and your IELTS score is important to get admitted to a university/college or to migrate to a country where English is used for academic or immigration purposes.

There are 2 different test formats in IELTS: Academic IELTS and General Training (GT) IELTS. Academic IELTS is recommended for students who want to get admitted to a foreign college or university. General Training IELTS is mainly designed for people who are planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.

The IELTS test can be taken either on a computer or using pen-and-paper. The computer-based version of IELTS, also called computer-delivered IELTS, is taken on a computer whereas the pen-and-paper based IELTS requires the candidate to use the pen/pencil and papers to complete the test.

The speaking part of the IELTS is not conducted on a computer; rather that is managed by a human examiner who takes the interview face-to-face both in paper-based and computer-delivered IELTS tests.

IELTS test has 4 sections: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Academic and GT IELTS have the same listening and speaking formats whereas the reading and writing (only task1) sections of the IELTS vary depending on whether a candidate is taking GT IELTS or Academic IELTS.

The IELTS exam lasts for 2 hours and 45 minutes (the speaking test duration may vary but usually lasts for 11-15 minutes). After the test, the result is published in two weeks and the result (also called Test Report Form or TRF) comes with a score from band 1 to band 9. Band score is given for individual modules as well as an average score.
