101 helpful hints for IELTS

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination can be taken in over 100 different countries in the world. It is primarily designed to assess the readiness of candidates to study or train in further or higher education courses held in English at college or university. The examination takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete, and consists of four Sub-tests in the
skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking.



There are two IELTS test modules available - the Academic Module and the General Training
Module. The results of the Academic Module may be used to determine a candidate's suitability
for study at undergraduate or postgraduate level. The General Training Module is suitable for
candidates wishing to continue their studies at diploma level only. The General Training Module
is also used for immigration purposes to Australia or New Zealand, and for students who wish
to complete their secondary education in an English-speaking country. The General Training
Reading and Writing Sub-tests are less demanding than the corresponding Academic Module
Sub-tests, but the Listening and Speaking Sub-tests are the same for both modules.



 It does not matter what subject you are going to study in the future - or have studied in the past
all students taking the desired module do the same test. You will not be tested on your specific
knowledge of a subject; only your English language skills are assessed. You may write on the question papers, but you may not take the question papers from the examination room. All your answers must be written on the Answer Sheet provided.



 You can apply to take the IELTS examination at any IELTS Administration Centre. For further
details of your nearest centre, consult the IDP British Council UCLES IELTS Handbook or refer
to the official IELTS website on the Internet: http://www.ielts.org/centres.cfm .At certain IELTS Administration Centres it is possible to choose between a computerised version
of the Listening, Reading and Writing Sub-tests (CBIELTS) and the usual paper-based version.




 You cannot pass or fail the IELTS examination. The university or college that you wish to enter
will inform you of the overall IELTS Band Score they require for enrolment in the particular
course you wish to study. Note that you may also need to achieve a minimum score in a particular
Sub-test (often the Writing Sub-test).
