What is IELTS?
IELTS stands for 'International English Language Testing System'. It is an international standardized test in English language proficiency. Every year IELTS tests accept over two million candidates. IELTS is now the world's most popular English language benchmark for study, work and immigration.
There are two versions of the IELTS TEST: Academic and General Training:
- Academic Version is designed for those who want to enroll to universities and other post graduate studies and for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practice in an English-speaking country. - General Training Version is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.
