All About IELTS

The International English Language Testing System or IELTS as it is more popularly know, is the world’s most popular English Language Proficiency test for further education and migration to a foreign country where English is the dominant language.

A vast suite of educational institutions, employers, governments and professional bodies trust and recognize IELTS as the preferred English proficiency examination for aspiring students, professionals and migration applicants.

The IELTS exam is structured and designed to test the proficiency of an applicant in the four skills of the English language – Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

All IELTS scores are between 0 to 9 band with the possibility of getting a .5 score in each skill. Example a test taker could get a 6 band in speaking but a 6.5 band in reading.
Each skill is scored between 0 to 9 bands with an overall score in the same range. The overall band score is an average of the band scores of all the four skills.

Writing Speaking Reading listening Overall Band score

Writing Speaking Reading listening Overall Band score
