Which test should I take?

There are two IELTS tests available – IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training. The test you choose should be based on what it is you want to do.

IELTS can help you with a variety of life choices, like moving abroad, getting the job you’ve always wanted or even just improving your English language skills. So before you book your test, be sure to check which one is right for you.

IELTS Academic

IELTS Academic measures whether your level of English language proficiency is suitable for an academic environment. It reflects aspects of academic language and evaluates whether you’re ready to begin training or studying.

Take this test if you want to:

  • study at an undergraduate level or postgraduate level anywhere in the world
  • apply for Tier 4 Student Visa at a university that is a Tier 4 Sponsor in the UK
  • work in an English-speaking country for a professional organisation.

IELTS General Training

IELTS General Training measures English language proficiency in a practical, everyday context. The tasks and tests reflect both workplace and social situations.

Take this test if you would like to:

  • study or train below degree level
  • work or undertake work related training in an English-speaking country
  • emigrate to an English-speaking country
  • get another job in your own country.

Depending on your preference, IELTS can now be taken on either paper or computer at a number of locations.
