The IELTS Exam

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. The IELTS is administered by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, the British Council & IDP Education. The exam is used for study, work or migration and is increasingly accepted and used throughout the USA. There are two primary versions of the IELTS: the academic version & the general training version. Basically, the academic version is meant for students who want to enroll in universities and other higher education institutions, as well as for medical professions, such as doctors or nurses who need to work or study in an English-speaking country. The general training version is meant for those looking to gain work experience or for purely immigration purposes.

Important IELTS Test Facts

There are four sections of the IELTS test:

  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking

Total test time: about 2 hours and 45 minutes

Please note:

  • IELTS can be taken on Paper or Computer
  • The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS examiner.
  • The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them. The Speaking section, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests. Your test center will advise.


  • You are only allowed to have a pencil, pen, your ID, and an eraser on your desk.
  • When it’s time to take the Listening test, check that you can hear the recording clearly. If you can’t, raise your hand and inform the invigilator.
  • After the Listening section, you will have 10 minutes to fill in the answer sheet. However, you will not have 10 minutes after the Reading section, so be sure to write your answers on your answer sheet when completing each section.
