What is the IELTS?
International English Language Testing System
The IELTS is a reading, writing and speaking English language test.
It is one of the only test available that actually offers real-life testing of both your writing and your speaking skills.
Unlike the TOEIC, the IELTS is not entirely standardized.
It includes a one on one face interview with a native speaker and two handwritten writing tasks.
The test total time is 2 hours and 44 minutes.
Listening, Reading and Writing are completed in one sitting. The Speaking test may be taken on the same day or up to seven days before or after the other tests.
Why take the IELTS?
The IELTS is taken by those who wish to study, live or work in a country where English is the primary language of communication. Specifically, the test is taken:
How is the IELTS graded?
Score reports are available by mail approximately two weeks after the exam is taken.
Candidates can take the exam as many times as they wish.
No minimum score is required to pass (succeed) the test.
Scores are reported on a scale of 1 to 9, one being a non-user and 9 being an expert user.
An IELTS result or Test Report Form is issued to all test takers with a score from "band 1" ("non-user") to "band 9" ("expert user") and each institution sets a different threshold.
There is also a "band 0" score for those who did not attempt the test.
Institutions are advised not to consider a report older than two years to be valid, unless the user proves that they have worked to maintain their level.
