The IELTS test is the international test for the English language test, which has been recognized as the global test for language test for over 20 years and is administered by the British Consulate and IDP Australia. You can take the exam in any of the 160 exam centers in 109 countries around the world. The purpose of the IELTS test is to assess the candidates’ knowledge and understanding of the English language in four main subjects of the language – listening comprehension, reading comprehension, writing, and speaking. The score on the exam is graded on a scale of 1-9 grades, with a score of 1 representing a complete lack of knowledge of the language, and a score of 9 representing knowledge of English at the level of a mother tongue. The requirement to take the IELTS test can be obtained from one of two channels: one is the academic channel, which is used for the purpose of accepting candidates for studies at universities and vocational institutions, and the other is a generic channel, which is used for immigration purposes.
The differences between the two versions are only in the reading and writing parts. The general version checks if the examinee will be able to be working a English-speaking environment workplace. Therefore, the nature of the questions and the texts in the reading and writing chapters are characterized in relation to the field of employment. The academic version of the IELTS test checks whether the examinee can integrate into an English-speaking academic environment. The reading and writing chapters in this version are characterized by connection to the academic field.
