(Free IELTS site)
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is
a usual entrance requirement by British, Australian, New
Zealand and Canadian universities and for secondary, vocational and
training programs.Now increasingly American universities have started
accepting valid scores in this exam.
IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is used as the language of communication. Tests are administered at accredited Test Centers throughout the world - there are currently more than 300 Centers, in over 120 countries.
ACADEMIC AND GENERAL TRAINING CANDIDATES
Candidates must select either the Academic or General Training Reading
and Writing Modules depending on the stated requirement of their sponsor
or receiving institution. The Academic Reading and Writing Modules
assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium
of English at an Undergraduate or Postgraduate level. The emphasis
of General Training is on basic survival skills in a broad social
and educational context. It is suitable for candidates who are going
to English speaking countries to complete their Secondary Education,
to undertake work experience or training programs not at degree level,
or for immigration purposes.
All candidates are tested in listening, reading, writing and speaking. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking Modules. There is a choice of Reading and Writing Modules. The first three modules- Listening, Reading and Writing must be completed in one day. The Speaking may be taken, at the discretion of the test center, on the same day or up to two days later. Candidates in some test centers are required to take additional pretest sections of up to 20 minutes. Performance on these pretests does not affect a candidate's results in any way but pre-testing is an essential part of IELTS question paper production.
