What is an IELTS Test and why should you take it?

The International English Language Testing System is an examination that assesses the language ability of candidates planning to migrate to a country where English is used as the language of communication. The IELTS test tests you in four parts:

Which test should you take? Academic or General?

This completely depends on why you’re taking up the test in the first place.

If you’re planning to do your higher education or professional registration, you should take up the Academic test.

If you’re going to English speaking countries for secondary education, work or training programs, you should take up the General test. The general test is also for those of you who want to migrate to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK.
