The International English Language Testing System is an examination specially designed to assess a candidate’s competency in the English Language for University studies. The IELTS examination is recognized by universities in the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. An increasing number of Universities in the United States and Canada are also accepting the IELTS scores.

The IELTS test (both Academic and General Training modules) is divided into four parts: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The listening and speaking tests are exactly the same for the Academic and General Training modules but the reading and writing tests are different. Thus the test appears like this (in the order that you will take the different parts):

ACADEMIC GENERAL TRAINING
Listening 4 sections; 40 questions. 30 minutes 4 sections; 40 questions. 30 minutes
Reading 3 sections; 40 questions
