IELTS (International English Language Testing System)

IELTS is the world's leading English language proficiency test. IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. More than 6,000 institutions and faculties of further and higher education in all major English-speaking countries, and government agencies, professional associations and employers, recognize and use IELTS scores.

IELTS Academic Module is recognized widely as a language requirement for entry to all courses in further and higher education and assesses whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level.

IELTS General Training Module is suitable for candidates who are going to English-speaking countries to complete their secondary education, undertake training programs, or for immigration purposes.

There is no pass or fail in IELTS. Scores are graded on the 9-band system. IELTS scores are valid for 2 years.
