What is the IELTS Test?

IELTS stands for The International English Language Testing System and is the world’s most popular means of testing English-language skills. Annually, more than 2.2 million people from all over the world take the test, and the certification is accepted by over 9,000 organisations worldwide, including every single higher education institution in the UK. IELTS assesses all important areas of a person's level of English — reading, writing, listening and speaking — and is designed to reflect both academic and real-life use of the English language. 

Although the test has two modules: IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training, it is essential to bear in mind that universities in the UK only accept IELTS Academic so, please make sure to register for the correct module of the test. Otherwise, you will experience troubles with your application to university.

IELTS results are graded on a scale from 1.0 to 9.0, and most of the UK Universities require an overall score of a minimum of 6.0, with no part under 5.5.
