IELTS stands for "International English Language Testing System". It's a system for testing the language ability for people who need to study or work in an environment where English is the language of communication. It is jointly managed by Cambridge English Language Assessment, the British Council and IDP Education. It was established in 1989 and is one of the two major English-language tests in the world (TOEFL being the other).
The IELTS Academic format is for people who want to study or train in an English-speaking university or Institution of Higher and Further Education. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of the Academic test. IELTS Academic may also be a requirement to join a professional organisation in an English-speaking country.
If you are not sure whether you should sit the Academic format or General Training format of the IELTS test, there are a few basic guidelines to keep in mind.
IELTS has more than 900 test centres and locations in more than 130 countries. You can search for your nearest test centre by country and territories, and city at the official IELTS website. Simply go to www.ielts.org, locate the 'Find an IELTS test' link and click on your country. Once you have found your country, you will be able to easily search for upcoming IELTS test locations, dates and costs.
The IELTS test will take most of the day, so make sure you are mentally and physically ready. You should arrive early to allow enough time for registration and to be seated for the test. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to sit the test. No personal items may be taken into the test room. IELTS staff will collect and safely store your personal belongings. Items which are forbidden in the test room include: dictionaries, notes, cameras, mobile phones, hand-held computers, books and wallets.
Online learning is here to stay and the benefits of preparing for IELTS online are significant. A recent *survey involving several thousand university leaders in the USA pointed out that the number of students studying online has increased dramatically over the past decade. The same report shows that almost 70% of higher learning institutions see online learning as critical to their success. In other words, a majority of universities consider online learning as an important and major part of their university courses.
Your IELTS band score will be given to you as a number between 0 (Did not attempt the test) and 9 (Expert User). A band score is not always expressed as a whole number but may be something like 6.5 or 7.5. You will receive a band score in each of the 4 modules - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Your four scores will be averaged to arrive at an Overall Band Score. Your goal is to achieve as high an Overall Band Score as possible.
The answer to this question depends upon your level of English. If you are a native English speaker, you could possibly be well-prepared for the test within 1-2 weeks. If you are at an advanced level of English, 1 month may be sufficient. We recommend an intermediate-level student should set aside 2 months for steady preparation. Most students in our course choose the Premium learning mode as it gives 62 continuous days of online IELTS preparation.
