What is IELTS?
IELTS – the International English Language Testing System, is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who want to study or work where English is the language of communication.
There are two tests – General and Academic:
The General test is for candidates wishing to migrate to an English-speaking country (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK), and for those wishing to train or study at below degree level.
The Academic test is for those candidates wishing to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels, and for those seeking professional registration.
