What is IELTS?

IELTS is one of the most popular English Proficiency Examination in the world.  The IELTS exam is given by those who are non-native English speakers but want to live, study or work in English speaking country.

IELTS is a paper-based examination that tests four skills – speaking, writing, reading and listening. The IELTS test is conducted by the British Councils, the University of Cambridge, and IELTS Australia. Basically, it is connected with the British government and typically used by British universities, as well as New Zealand and Australian universities to check the language potential of foreign students.

IELTS is band based exam that means no one will fail. However, the test is given a level from 0-9, based on how well students perform in exam. So, IELTS students sets their own targets to reach.
