General Education / Academic:
IELTS is offered in two versions: Academic, which is for applicants seeking higher education or professional registration, and General Training, which is for immigrants to Australia, Canada, or the UK or those seeking secondary education, training programs, or work experience in an English-speaking setting. The four language skills—listening, reading, writing, and speaking—are properly and accurately evaluated in both editions.
Fair to all:
By actively avoiding cultural bias and recognizing all accepted forms of native-speaker English, including North American, British, Australian, and New Zealand English, IELTS treats everyone test taker with the utmost impartiality and respect.
In less than three hours, the IELTS test assesses your speaking, listening, reading, and writing. IELTS comes in two flavors: Academic and General Training. Speaking and Listening are the same on both exams, but Reading and Writing feature controversial perspectives depending on which test you take.
There are no gaps between the Listening, Reading, and Writing portions of any IELTS test; all are all finished on the same day. But you can undertake the Speaking test up to a week before or after the other exams. Your test center will provide instructions. The exam seems to last hours and forty-five minutes in total.
