What is IELTS?

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is a test designed to evaluate the Communication and English Language Skills and tests the Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills of the candidate.

IELTS has two modules – Academic and General; the former for those who wish to study in the English speaking countries and the latter for those who wish to opt for immigration.
