What is the IELTS Test?

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 clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).

There are actually 2 types of IELTS exam which are IELTS General Training and IELTS Academic.

Which IELTS test is right for me?

IELTS Academic

International students that apply to universities in the UK , Australia New Zealand or Canada will take the IELTS Academic test. 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. Most universities will require a minimum score of 6.5 to apply for degree level courses which is equivalent to CEFR B2 so you may need to do a general English course first to improve your level before you take an IELTS test.

IELTS General Training

The IELTS General Training test is for those who are going to English speaking countries for secondary education (below degree level) , 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.

Widely available

IELTS is available at more than 1,600 locations worldwide, including more than 50 locations in the USA. Which means you can study online with us to take the test in your home country before you travel.

Does the IELTS test result have an expiry date?

The IELTS result is only valid for two years from the test date. This is to ensure the reliability of the test results since language skills of individuals may develop or deteriorate in a span of two years.

The IELTS system automatically deactivates IELTS result when it reaches its 2nd year. It is not possible to extend the validity of the IELTS results.

IELTS preparation course

To get a good score in IELTS you need intermediate level English. But to maximise your chances of obtaining your desired IELTS score, there are two more requirements.

First, you need to know the topics which are tested in the IELTS exam and you need to be familiar with the academic vocabulary for each topic.

Secondly, you must be familiar with the different types of question in each part of the test, and you must have a good strategy for answering each question.

Our course is designed to help you to understand the major topic areas in the IELTS test and the relevant academic vocabulary.

Most importantly, our experienced team of IELTS teachers will help you to understand the questions in the exam, show you how to answer them and give you plenty of practice (we call it ‘strategies for tackling the tasks’). You will also have a chance to test your general English level at the start of the course.
