IELTS is available in two test formats:Academic or General Training. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking modules but different Reading and Writing modules
Academic or General Training
The Academic format is for those who want to study or train in an English-speaking university or Institutions of Higher and Further Education. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the results of the Academic test
