IELTS (International English language Testing System) is a language proficiency test designed to assess the ability of candidates or those intending to study or work in countries where English is the language of communication. IELTS is accepted and recognised by many organisations worldwide. IELTS is jointly owned and coordinated by three (3) bodies which are
- British Council;
- IDP; and
- Cambridge English Language Assessment.
IELTS comprise two(2) modules which are:
- Academic Module: for candidates intending to study where English is the language of communication
- General Training Module: for candidates intending to work where English is the language of communication
The difference between the two(2) modules stated above is in the Reading Test and Writing Test. The Listening and Speaking Tests for the two modules are the same.
There are four(4) components/parts of the IELTS test which are:
- Listening Test: which lasts for about 40 minutes with 4 sections and 40 questions in all.
- Reading Test: which lasts for about 60 minutes with 3 sections and 40 questions in all.
- Writing Test: which lasts for about 60 minutes with 2 parts or tasks.
- Speaking Test: which lasts for about 14 minutes with 3 parts.
Test takers should note that the Listening, Reading and Writing tests must be completed on the same day and there are no breaks between these 3 tests. The Speaking test may be scheduled on the same day as the written tests or on a different day up to 7 days before or after the test day for the written tests.
The Test Results (Test Reports) are usually available thirteen (13) calendar days after the test. This reports a score for each of the four skills/tests (listening, reading, writing and speaking), as well as an overall band score. The IELTS results are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (which is the lowest) to 9 (which is the highest). The IELTS test results are valid for two (2) years.
