IELTS


The IELTS Examination is used to measure the linguistic proficiency of people who wish to go for studies or for seeking jobs in countries where English is the medium of communication. The two main providers of the test are IDP and British Council. There are two versions for the test : a) General – for those candidates who wish to go abroad for job and migration purposes; b) Academic – for those candidates who want to pursue higher studies abroad. Both the test versions assess the four required language skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

IELTS scores are accepted by more than 3,000 educational institutions and various professional organizations across the globe. The required score band varies according to the norms set based on institution, course and country (for Academic) and based on profession ( for General). In most cases, a band of 6.0 and above is required.
