International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an international uniform test of English language expertise for non-native English language speakers. It assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and in your new life abroad. IELTS is accepted by most Australian, British, Canadian and New Zealand academic institutions, by over 3,000 academic institutions in the United States, and by various professional organizations across the world. There are two modules in IELTS: IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. IELTS Academic is for those aspiring to study abroad, and IELTS General Training is for those planning to work abroad. Each module has four sections (details below)


General reading

  • It requires candidates to read extracts from books, magazines, newspapers, notices, advertisements, company handbooks and guidelines.
  • These are materials you are likely to encounter on a daily basis in an English speaking environment
  • Academic reading

  • It includes three long texts which range from the descriptive and factual to the discursive and analytical
  • These texts are suitable for a non-specialist audience but are appropriate for candidates entering university courses or seeking professional registration.
  • Writing

    General writing

  • Task 1 – Write a letter requesting information, or explaining the situation presented in the topic. The letter may be personal, semi-formal or formal in style.
  • Task 2 – Write an essay in response to a point of view, argument or problem.
  • Academic writing

  • Task 1 – Explain the information presented in a graph, table, chart or diagram in your own words
  • Task 2 – Write an essay in response to a point of view, argument or problem.
  • Listening

    You will listen to four recorded texts, monologues and conversations by a range of native speakers, and write your answers to a series of questions. A variety of voices and native-speaker accents are used and each section is heard only once.

  • Section 1 – A conversation between two people set in an everyday social context.
  • Section 2 – A monologue set in an everyday social context e.g. a speech about local facilities.
  • Section 3 – A conversation between up to four people set in an educational or training context, e.g. a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment.
  • Section 4 – A monologue on an academic subject e.g. a university lecture.
  • Speaking

  • Part 1 – General Questions about yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as home, family, work, studies and interests. (4 – 5 minutes)
  • Part 2 – Talking about a particular topic. You will have one minute to prepare before speaking for up to two minutes. The examiner will then ask one or two questions on the same topic to finish this part of the test. (4 – 5 minutes)
  • Part 3 – Answer further questions connected to the topic in Part 2. These questions will give you the opportunity to discuss more abstract ideas and issues. (4 – 5 minutes)
