You are tested on all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Whether you are studying the Academic paper or the General Training paper, everyone takes the same Listening and Speaking tests. There are, however, different Reading and Writing tests for IELTS Academic and General Training. The Listening, Reading and Writing tests must be completed on the same day. There are no breaks between these three tests. The Speaking test may be taken up to seven days before or after the other three tests.
The IELTS scoring system is recognised globally, giving you a truly international result. You will receive a score of 0–9, with 0 being for those who did not attempt the test, and 9 being for those with a high level of English. Most universities accept scores between 6–7 as being suitable for undergraduate study in English. The IELTS 9-band score system is consistent. It is secure, benchmarked and understood worldwide. Test materials are designed carefully so that every version of the test is the same scale of difficulty.
