The International English Language Testing System, or IELTS, is a test that assesses your ability to communicate in English. IELTS is an excellent education for enhancing your listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities. The University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), the British Council, and IDP: IELTS Australia are the main administrators of IELTS.

Modules in IELTS are divided into two categories. The first is for general use, while the second is for academic purposes. The General Training course is primarily for people who need immigration services or self-employment in other countries. And the Academic course is primarily intended for those pursuing higher education at universities.

Over 21 years ago, IELTS was one of the first four-skill English language tests, and it continues to raise the bar for English language evaluation today. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) was founded in 1989.

  • IELTS is the most widely accepted English language test in the world.

  • Over 8,000 companies across the world recognize the IELTS as proof of English language competency.
  • For education, immigration, and professional certification, IELTS is recognized as a safe, legitimate, and trustworthy indication of true-to-life English communication skills.
  • IELTS is the most commonly accepted English language test, which assesses your English communication abilities through a one-on-one speaking test.
  • British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment jointly own IELTS, which is available in over 900 test canters and locations across 140 countries.

IELTS Coaching: Its Importance

When it comes to the IELTS exam, your IELTS score counts if you want to get into a reputable university. You must devote time and effort to rigorous IELTS preparation. The IELTS Test will put you to the test in various areas, from grammar to verbal communication to spelling. Understanding the principles of the English language is the only surefire approach to passing the IELTS exam.

Patterns in IELTS Exams

Speaking, writing, reading, and listening are all assessed in the IELTS exam. All four modules are structured in such a way that they may be used to analyze a person’s capacity to apply English in a day-to-day situation in an English-speaking country. The IELTS test was created by some of the world’s foremost language evaluation professionals. It has a strong international reputation and is recognized by over 8,000 organizations throughout the world, including schools, colleges, companies, immigration agencies, and professional organizations.

The IELTS exam lasts 2 hours and 45 minutes in total. It is divided into four sections: listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

➔           Listening exam: There are 40 questions in the Listening test, and it takes around 30 minutes to complete. Multiple choice questions, short answer questions, sentence completion, and chart/table completion questions will all be included in the programme.

➔           Reading exam: There are 40 questions in the Reading test, and the time limit is 60 minutes. The questions will be centered on identifying writers’ perspectives/ attitudes, matching lists/ phrases, naming a diagram, and selecting appropriate paragraphs.

➔           Writing exam: There are two activities in the Writing test, and the time limit is 60 minutes. The part will include two activities, one for General Training and one for Academics, both of which must be completed in 150-250 words.

➔           Speaking exam: There are three components to the Speaking test, which takes around 11-15 minutes to complete. Face-to-face interaction with an examiner is required for this module.

Scale measuring Band Scores

  • 9- Expert user
  • 8- Very good user
  • 7- Good user
  • 6- Competent user
  • 5- Modest user
  • 4- Limited user
  • 3- Extremely limited user
  • 2- Intermittent user
  • 1- Non-user

All applicants with a score of 1 (no knowledge) to 9 (excellent) receive an IELTS result or Test Report Form (expert user). The most acceptable band score is six bands, thus students should strive for that. Test takers receive a Test Report Form with their overall band score and sub-scores for each of the four components: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. The component scores are all equally weighted. The mean of the four individual component scores is used to obtain the overall band score.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test that assesses English language proficiency at all levels. IELTS doesn’t have a pass/fail system. The results are provided as a band score on a scale of 1 to 9, and are based on individual performance.

Convenient And Easy To Use: In more than 125 countries, IELTS is provided up to four times a month.

Mode of Exam: Pen-Paper based test And Computer based test (CBT)

Exam Result

A Test Report form will be given to the candidate, which will include a score for each of the four abilities (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) as well as an overall band score. After the exam, the results are given out 13 days later. Candidates can pick up their results on the 13th day at some test locations, while results are mailed on the 13th day at others. Results cannot be given over the phone, faxed, or emailed by test centers.

If an applicant is dissatisfied with his or her test result, he or she can request a re-mark at the testing center where the exam was taken. The application must be submitted no later than six weeks following the test date. You have control over which test items are re-marked. This service has a cost, which will be returned if your score on any component improves. It takes 6 to 8 weeks to finish.

The ability to retake the IELTS test is unrestricted. If you do not receive the desired result, you may retake the test whenever you feel ready. Please keep in mind that unless you make a concerted effort to improve your English skills before taking the exam again, your score is unlikely to improve.

COMPUTER- BASED IELTS TEST:

If you pick the Computer-Delivered IELTS, you will use a computer to complete the Listening, Reading, and Writing portions. The Speaking test will continue to be conducted face-to-face since we feel it is the most effective means of evaluating your speaking abilities and encourages a more realistic performance. All other aspects of the test are identical, whether it is taken on paper or on the computer. Results for computer-delivered IELTS will be available 5-7 days after you finish all sections of your test.

What Makes It Distinct from IELTS on Paper?

When you choose computer-delivered IELTS, you will use a desktop computer to complete the Listening, Reading, and Writing sections. All other components of the IELTS test remain the same as on paper, including:

  • Content
  • Marking
  • Timings
  • Questions type

The timeframes for the computer-based IELTS test change somewhat from those for the paper-based test.

❖           You’ll have some time to read the questions before taking any section of the Listening test.

❖           You’ll have two minutes to evaluate your answers before finishing the Listening test.

❖           The Listening exam takes about 30–36 minutes to complete.
