IELTS is the acronym for International English Language Testing System. It is one of the world’s most popular tests to measure a candidate’s proficiency in English. It is accepted by more than 10000 education institutions along with many professional alliances, immigration authorities, and many employers across the world.
The test is organised by the IDP education system and is recommended for those who do not have English as their native language. People who aspire to immigrate or study in English-speaking countries should take this test. It is recognised and accepted in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and European countries.
It evaluates the applicant’s accuracy in four different modules of the English language: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking on a scale of zero to nine bands. Although there is no pass or fail in this exam, there can be specific requirements for the type of application you want to do.
Fun fact: Each year, over 3 million applicants take the IELTS test from over 150 countries to seek higher education, professional registration, and permanent residency.
