Test Prepartion For IELTS

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to identify proficiency levels, from non-user (band score 1) to expert (band score 9).

IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training

IELTS is available in two test versions: academic (for people applying for higher education or professional registration) and general training (for those migrating to Australia, Canada, and the UK or applying for secondary education, training programs, and work experience in an English-speaking environment). Both versions provide a valid and accurate assessment of the four language skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

IELTS Academic

The IELTS Academic Test is for people applying for higher education or professional registration in an English-speaking environment. It reflects some of the features of academic language and assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training. This approach is widely supported by the institutions that recognize IELTS.

IELTS General Training

The IELTS General Training Test is for those going to English-speaking countries for secondary education, work experience, or training programs. It is also a requirement for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK. The test focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts.
