Test format

There are two versions of IELTS. Both versions cover all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Everyone takes the same Listening and Speaking tests. There are different Reading and Writing tests for the Academic and General Training versions.

  • IELTS Academic is for those who want to study or train in an English-speaking university and institutions of Higher and further Education. Admission to undergraduate or postgraduate courses is based on the results of the Academic test. IELTS Academic may also be a requirement to join a professional organization in an English-speaking county.
  • IELTS General Training is for those who are going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or training programs. People migrating to Australia, Canada and New Zealand must sit the General Training test.
