What is IELTS?
IELTS is an acronym for the International English Language Testing System. IELTS is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English.
IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and immigration. IELTS is accepted by most Australian, British, Canadian and New Zealand academic institutions, by over 3,000 academic institutions in the United States, and by various professional organisations across the world. IELTS is accepted for immigration to Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
What are the types of IELTS tests?
There are two types of tests, namely, IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. There is also a separate test offered by the IELTS test partners, called IELTS Life Skills.
IELTS Academic is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and other institutions of higher education. It is also for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practise in an English-speaking country.
IELTS General Training is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.
IELTS Life Skills is intended for those who need to prove their English speaking and listening skills at Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels A1 or B1. It can be used to apply for a ‘family of a settled person’ visa, indefinite leave to remain or citizenship in the UK.
What are the features of the IELTS test?
IELTS Academic and General Training both incorporate the following features:
IELTS tests the ability to listen, read, write and speak in English.
The speaking module is a key component of IELTS. It is conducted in the form of a one-to-one interview with an examiner. The examiner assesses the test taker as he or she is speaking. The speaking session is also recorded for monitoring and for re-marking in case of an appeal against the score given.
A variety of accents and writing styles have been presented in test materials in order to minimise linguistic bias. The accents in the listening section are generally 80% British, Australian, New Zealander and 20% others (mostly American).
IELTS is developed by experts at Cambridge English Language Assessment with input from item writers from around the world. Teams are located in the USA, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other English-speaking nations.
How is the IELTS test scored?
There is no pass or fail. IELTS is scored on a nine-band scale, with each band corresponding to a specified competence in English. Overall Band Scores are reported to the nearest half band. The following rounding convention applies: if the average across the four skills ends in .25, it is rounded up to the next half band, and if it ends in .75, it is rounded up to the next whole band.
Test takers receive a score for each test component – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The individual scores are then averaged and rounded to produce an Overall Band Score. Band scores are used for each language sub-skill (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking). The Band Scale ranges from 0 (“Did not attempt the test”) to 9 (“Expert User”).
A Test Report Form is posted to test takers. It shows:
— An Overall Band Score (from 1-9)
— A band score (from 1-9) for each section of the test (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking)
— Whether IELTS Academic or General Training was completed
— The test taker’s photo, nationality, first language and date of birth.
Test takers receive one copy of their Test Report Form. Test takers who are applying to the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) or UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) receive two copies.
Test Report Forms are valid for two years.
What are the parts of the IELTS test?
The IELTS test has four parts namely, Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.
All test takers take the same Listening and Speaking tests, while the Reading and Writing tests differ depending on whether the test taker is taking the Academic or General Training version.

Some more information on the IELTS test
The module comprises of four sections, with ten questions in each section. It takes 40 minutes: 30 – for testing, plus 10 for transferring the answers to an answer sheet.
Sections 1 and 2 are about everyday, social situations.
Section 1 has a conversation between two speakers (for example, a conversation about travel arrangements)
Section 2 has one person speaking (for example, a speech about local facilities).
Sections 3 and 4 are about educational and training situations.
Section 3 is a conversation between two main speakers (for example, a discussion between two university students, perhaps guided by a tutor)
Section 4 has one person speaking about an academic subject.
Each section begins with a short introduction telling the test taker about the situation and the speakers. Then they have some time to look through the questions. The questions are in the same order as the information in the recording, so the answer to the first question will be before the answer to the second question, and so on. The first three sections have a break in the middle allowing test takers to look at the remaining questions. Each section is heard only once.
At the end of the test, students are given 10 minutes to transfer their answers to an answer sheet. Test takers will lose marks for incorrect spelling and grammar.
The Reading paper has three sections and texts totaling 2,150-2,750 words. There will be a variety of question types, such as multiple choice, short-answer questions, identifying information, identifying writer’s views, labeling diagrams, completing a summary using words taken from the text and matching information/headings/features in the text/sentence endings. Test takers should be careful when writing down their answers as they will lose marks for incorrect spelling and grammar.
Reading in IELTS Academic
Three reading texts, which come from books, journals, magazines, newspapers and online resources written for non-specialist audiences. All the topics are of general interest to students at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
Reading in IELTS General Training
Section 1 contains two or three short texts or several shorter texts, which deal with everyday topics. For example, timetables or notices – things a person would need to understand when living in an English-speaking country.
Section 2 contains two texts, which deal with work. For example, job descriptions, contracts, training materials.
Section 3 contains one long text about a topic of general interest. The text is generally descriptive, longer and more complex than the texts in Sections 1 and 2. The text will be taken from a newspaper, magazine, book or online resource.
The Writing paper has two tasks which must both be completed. In task 1 test takers write at least 150 words in about 20 minutes. In task 2 test takers write at least 250 words in about 40 minutes. Test takers will be penalised if their answer is too short or does not relate to the topic. Answers should be written in full sentences (test takers must not use notes or bullet points).
Writing in IELTS Academic
Task 1: test takers describe a graph, table, chart or diagram in their own words.
Task 2: test takers discuss a point of view, argument or problem. Depending on the task, test takers may be required to present a solution to a problem, present and justify an opinion, compare and contrast evidence, opinions and implications, and evaluate and challenge ideas, evidence or an argument.
Writing in IELTS General Training
Task 1: test takers write a letter in response to a given everyday situation. For example, writing to an accommodation officer about problems with your accommodation, writing to a new employer about problems managing your time, writing to a local newspaper about a plan to develop a local airport, or any other everyday situation.
Task 2: test takers write an essay about a topic of general interests. For example, whether smoking should be banned in public places, whether children’s leisure activities should be educational, or how environmental problems can be solved, or any other topic of general interest.
The speaking test is a face-to-face interview between the test taker and an examiner.
The speaking test contains three sections.
Section 1: introduction and interview (4–5 minutes). Test takers may be asked about their home, family, work, studies, hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet.
Section 2: long turn (3–4 minutes). Test takers are given a task card about a particular topic. Test takers have one minute to prepare to talk about this topic. The task card states the points that should be included in the talk and one aspect of the topic which must be explained during the talk. Test takers are then expected to talk about the topic for 2 minutes, after which the examiner may ask one or two questions.
Section 3: discussions (4–5 minutes). The third section involves a discussion between the examiner and the test taker, generally on questions relating to the theme which they have already spoken about in Section 2.
When and Where is the IELTS test conducted?
Test takers can take IELTS in more than 140 countries and in over 1,200 locations. In Gujarat, India, the test is conducted in Ahmedabad, Baroda, Rajkot, Surat, Anand and Mehsana.
There are up to 48 test dates available per year. Each test centre offers tests up to 4 times a month depending on local demand. The Academic version is available on all 48 dates per year and the General Training version is available on 24 dates.
Any test taker can take the test as many times as required to improve the Band Score.
What is the minimum IELTS Band required for higher studies?
The minimum IELTS Band required by academic institutions vary by country and by course. As a general rule, the range required is between 6.0 to 9.0 Band. The top ranked universities tend to require higher bands, usually starting from a 7.0 Band. Other universities may accept a 6.5 Band, while others may also accept a 6.0 Band.
With our unique personalised coaching methodology, our students are prepared for the topmost 9 Band. Even if they do not achieve the topmost Band, yet they can easily achieve somewhere between Band 7 to Band 9, which makes them eligible to apply for almost every university.
What if I am physically challenged? Can I still take IELTS?
Yes. IELTS is designed to be fair for all persons. Persons having visual impairment, hearing difficulties, or learning difficulties are provided with special provisions. You must let your test centre know at the earliest, so that they have time to put special arrangements in place for you.
IDP or British Council, which is better for taking the test?
Both are equal. There is no difference in the IELTS test, the marking or the qualifications of the examiners. Choose any test center (IDP or British Council) that is close to your home, so that you are feeling fresh when you arrive for the test. You should check the location of your IELTS test centre, which may be different from the test centre where you booked the test. You should visit your IELTS test location and check the start time of your test. You should do this a week in advance, so that you know how much time it will take you to reach your test location. On the day of the test, try to arrive in good time for your test, for example at least 20-30 minutes early. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to take the test.
Can I take my mobile phone in the test room?
No, you cannot take any gadgets in the test room. You have to switch off your mobile phone along with any other electronic devices that you may carry. You have to place these along with your personal belongings outside the test room. In your application form, you will find a Test Takers information part, wherein you will find the IELTS test terms and conditions. You must make sure that you read and understand these before taking the test. You may also read the latest IELTS test terms and conditions at this link: https://takeielts.britishcouncil.org/sites/default/files/2018-01/IELTS_Notice_to_Candidates_0.pdf
Which ID should I carry on the test day?
On the day of your test, the IELTS staff will check your identification documents. The correct ID that you need to carry will be mentioned in the documents you received when you registered for the test. If you carry any other ID you will not be allowed to take the test. The IELTS staff will also take your photograph before you sit for the test. A finger scan may also be required in some countries.
When should I give the IELTS test?
You should give the IELTS test only when you regularly hit your desired band score in your practice tests. You can do practice tests on your own or at a coaching centre. With practice tests you will be prepared and stay calm. The more practice tests you take, the more confident you will become. You must do quality practice tests that stimulate real exam conditions. Simply doing any practice test will not be effective.
Which skills are tested on the same day?
Listening, reading and writing are tested on the same day. The speaking skill can be tested earlier, after, or on the same day.
Is there a break between the listening, reading and writing tests?
No, there are no breaks between the sections. The listening, reading and writing tests will take 2 hours and 40 minutes. However, you may go to the bathroom if you so require. You need to put your hand up in order to attract the invigilator’s attention, without disturbing other candidates. Note that if you go to the bathroom then in the process, you will lose valuable time and you may not be able to answer all the questions. It is best that you do not need to go to the bathroom. In your practice tests, you should become aware of the amount of food and water that you need to consume prior to taking the practice tests. The quantity should be such that you do not feel hungry or thirsty during the test, and also do not need to go to the bathroom.
Can I keep some food and a bottle of water with me?
You will not be allowed to take any food in the test room; nevertheless, you will be allowed to take a drink only in a bottle that is transparent. This bottle will not be kept on your desk. You will be allowed only to keep a pen(s) or a pencil(s), an eraser and your ID on your desk. If you need to drink water or drink from your bottle, then you have to raise your hand and seek the permission of the invigilator. For any questions that you may have during the test, simply raise your hand to attract the invigilator’s attention, without disturbing other candidates.
Can I wear a watch in the test room?
No, you cannot wear a watch. The test room will have a clock on the wall, so that you can stay aware of the time taken to answer the questions.
Can I leave early if I complete my test early?
You can leave anytime you want to, but you have to raise your hand and seek the invigilator’s permission to leave the test room. Generally, no candidate leaves early, since if you have some extra time then it can be utilized to check your answers again.
Should I use a pen or a pencil in the IELTS test?
In the listening test and the reading test, you have to use a pencil. You may also use an eraser, if you must. You should take your own pencils and eraser to the test center. In the writing test, you can use a pen or a pencil, as per your choice.
Can I write all answers in CAPITAL LETTERS?
You can write in small letters or in capital letters as per your choice. However, you should consider the following recommendations:
– For the listening and reading tests, it is recommended that you SHOULD USE only capital letters. Since the answers comprise of few words, writing in capital letters is easy and it also helps if you have poor handwriting.
– For the writing test, it is recommended that you SHOULD NOT use capital letters. You should use only small letters; since punctuation is marked. You can show better punctuation with small letters.
– For the speaking test part 2 (task card) you are supposed to make notes for your talk. These notes you have to make in one minute. So just write cue words, tips or ideas, without any punctuation. You need not write full sentences, as the notes that you make will not be marked and the examiner will not check them. Just write in any fashion you are comfortable in, which helps you to give a nice talk.
– You SHOULD NOT start a sentence with the following linking words, “and/but/because”, so you should never capitalize them.
– You SHOULD always write the first letter of the following in capital letters only:
–Names of Days/Months. For example, Monday/April
–Names of Persons and Titles. For example, Dr. John Smith/ Mr. Robin Jones/ Mrs. J. Snow
–Names of Places. For example, Cambridge University, University of London, Heathrow airport
–Names of Countries/Cities. For example, India/UK/New Delhi/London
–The first letter of a sentence. For example, “A sentence always begins with a capital letter.”
–Expansion of acronyms. For example, IELTS (International English Language Testing System), BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation)
Which is acceptable: British English or American English?
Both are acceptable. However, you should use only one type and not mix British or American spellings.
How many times can the IELTS test be taken?
You may take the test as many times as you want. If you take multiple attempts, then you should use the test score in which you scored the highest, provided the test score is valid (validity is of two years).
Is the test taken on a computer or is it paper-based?
Both computer-based and paper-based tests are available. You should choose the test in which you are comfortable. There is no difference between the tests and both tests have the same questions. The paper-based test is available all over the world; however, the computer-based test may not be available in some countries.
How can IELTS help for study purposes?
For undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the IELTS Academic is suitable. For study or training that is below degree level, or for those wishing to migrate to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK, the IELTS General Training is suitable.
How can IELTS help for migration purposes?
Many countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand and UK, accept IELTS for permanent residency (PR) visa category.
How can IELTS help for work purposes?
To work in most English-speaking countries, the IELTS General Training test is acceptable, since it evaluates the candidate’s proficiency of English language in an everyday and practical context. Several professional bodies in sectors like accounting, law, engineering, health care, government, energy, finance, construction, tourism and aviation recognise IELTS results. The required IELTS band score vary by country, profession and organization. The candidates have to verify from the individual professional bodies regarding which examination (Academic or General Training) they need to take for their work purposes.
