IELTS is undoubtedly the most popular English language test for accessing higher education or employment in a country where English is the primary language of communication. It allows you to demonstrate advanced proficiency in English, specifically your ability to attend university-level courses in English or work in an English-speaking company.
IELTS assesses your knowledge of language skills that define language mastery, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The speaking component is conducted in a face-to-face session with a certified examiner.
There are two versions of IELTS: Academic and General Training. You choose one or the other based on whether your goal is to pursue studies or obtain a visa for work abroad. IELTS is the only English language test accepted by immigration services in countries where English certification is required.
IELTS covers proficiency levels from C2 to A1 on the CEFR scale.
