IELTS - International English Language Testing System

IELTS, is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. It is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), British Council and IDP:IELTS Australia. IELTS conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment. It covers four language skills - listening, reading, writing and speaking.
IELTS is recognised by universities and employers in many countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, The UK and the USA. It is also recognised by professional bodiess, immigration authorities and other government agencies. A full list of recognising organizations is available on the IELTS website: http://www.ielts.org/. IELTS is not recommended for candidates under the age of 16.
IELTS tests are administered at centres throughout the world - there are more than 300 centres, in over 100 countries. A full list of centres is also available on the website. Most centres conduct a testing session at least once a month and more often at peak times. Results will be produced 13 days after the test. At some test centres candidates may collect their results on the 13th day, at others results are mailed on the 13th day. The candidate will only receive one copy of their test result and replacement copies will not be provided. Additional copies can be sent direct to receiving organisations and institutions by test centres. There are no restrictions on candidates re-taking the test.
The test is available in two formats - Academic and General Training. The Academic Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses should be based on the results of these modules. The General Training Modules emphasise basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context. General Training is suitable for candidates who are going to English speaking countries to complete their secondary education, to undertake work experience or training programmes not at degree level, or for immigration purposes to Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The General Training modules are not offered at all test administrations.
