What is IELTS


International Languages Testing System, managed jointly by BC (British Council) and IDP. IELTS is a standardized test for non-native speakers of English who aspire to study abroad or/and work or/and to migrate to a country where English is the native.

The IELTS is a globally recognised English test. Statistics show that over 1.4 million applicants take the test each year to apply for overseas education and employment. Over 6,000 institutions in 135 countries recognise this test.

The IELTS is conducted in over 500 international centres, four times in a month. A number of people from different backgrounds appear for the test, making it one of the most accepted forms of international testing. This makes it imperative for aspirants to plan a structured preparation before taking the IELTS.
