The IELTS Exam at a Glance

What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9). Over 2.7 million candidates take the test each year to start their journeys in international education and employment. The IELTS is accepted by more than 9,000 institutions/organizations in over 135 countries.


You can choose from two types of IELTS test: Academic or General Training, depending on whether you want to work or for migration purposes. Both modules are made up of four parts - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The IELTS is graded on the unique 9-band scale.

Section Format Format
Listening 30 mins 40 questions in 4 sections
Reading 60 mins 40 questions in 3 sections
Writing 60 mins 1 topic in 150 words (20 mins)
1 topic in 250 words (40 mins)
