The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures your language proficiency out of a 9 band score. IELTS General Training (GT IELTS) has four components – Writing, Speaking, Listening and Reading. You will be assigned a band score for each component (Writing, Speaking, Listening and Reading) and then an overall band score. Learn more about IELTS Band Score and Test Results from IELTS Result FAQ section.

IELTS General Training test measures a candidate’s English language proficiency in a practical, everyday context. People take IELTS General Training to study or get training in secondary education/at a college (below degree level) or migrate to an English-speaking country. However, a host of other countries also demands IELTS to accept admission to an educational institute or for migration.

Your speaking test can be scheduled up to a week before or after the other tests based on the country you take the test. Nevertheless, other components of the test (Listening, Reading and Writing) would be on the same date with no breaks in between. Your test centre will advise you about the schedule prior to your test. Once you take the test, your score will be valid for the next two years.

IELTS Preparation section gives you comprehensive preparation materials for your IELTS GT exam. The materials are for four sections (Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing) of the IELTS GT exam. You can navigate to a particular section and start preparing for this section. The materials are designed in a way so that you do not need any assistance from a teacher. They are self-preparation materials and you are welcome to ask any question via our commenting system whenever a question pops up in your mind.

IELTS Sample Answer section includes questions taken from real IELTS GT tests and provides you with model answers. You should go through this section and sub-sections to get familiar with the types of questions you would actually encounter in your real IELTS GT test. The questions and answers are categorised according to GT IELTS components (i.e. Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing). The sample answer(s) added to each question is to help you generate some ideas on how to approach a question and not for memorising. In fact, you should never memorise an answer for your IELTS GT test.
