If you are a student keen on pursuing higher studies in an Australian or British University, you need to take the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination. It is a pre-requisite for all non-native students who aspire to study in countries where the medium of instruction is English. IELTS is also for those who wish to migrate, undertake work or practice a profession in an English-speaking country.
IELTS - International Educational Institutions
In the recent years, certain US educational institutions do consider IELTS as an alternative to Teaching of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) test. On the whole, around 3800 educational institutions, government agencies and professional organizations across 120 countries do recognize IELTS test.
IELTS tests your ability to read, write, speak and listen in English. There are two versions - the Academic or General Training version. The test will be accorded in the same order - reading, writing, speaking and listening. On the day of assessment, the first three sections will be held in the morning without a break.
The last section, namely speaking section in the form of an interview (for 15 minutes) can be held on the same day in the afternoon or within 7 days before or after the other modules. The interview schedule is assigned purely at the discretion of the test centre.
