The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a standardized test assessment of the English Language proficiency of individuals who intend to study or work in countries where English is employed as the primary language of communication. It was jointly developed by the British Council, Cambridge English Language Assessment, as well as the IDP: IELTS Australia.

IELTS uses a nine-band scale rating for English literacy, with band score 1 corresponding for “non-user” all the way to band score 9 for “expert user”, depending on the applicant’s overall determined proficiency in the examination.

It is the most prevalent language skill test accepted globally, with available testing centers at 1,200 locations worldwide; 50 of which are located in the United States. Available in two different versions for academic and general training purposes, the IELTS provides an accurate assessment of the four different aspects of language proficiency: reading, speaking, writing, and listening.

Students applying for higher education, as well as graduates seeking professional registration for their respective careers must take the Academic version. Those planning for migration to English-speaking countries like Canada, Australia, and the UK for secondary education or work-experience fall in the General Training category. Testing dates are scheduled 48 times annually.
