What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an international standardised test designed to assess the English Language ability and proficiency of candidates who are non-native English speakers. The IELTS qualification is accepted by the majority of academic institutions and various professional organisations around the world.

As one of the world’s major English-language tests, it conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment and jointly managed and owned by British Council, Cambridge English Language Assessment, and IDP: IELTS Australia. Four key language skills are covered in the test – reading, listening, speaking and writing.

How is IELTS useful for your future Career?

IELTS is widely recognised by academic institutions, universities and employers worldwide in countries such as USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK and many Commonwealth countries. It is also recognised by immigration authorities, professional bodies and government agencies. IELTS is not recommended for candidates under the age of 16.

The IELTS qualification will open doors to opportunities worldwide from education and migration to training and employment in an English-speaking environment where English is the working language in communication. At English Explorer, we offer an IELTS course in Singapore to help you prepare and practice for the test, with skill-building exercises and identifying the areas to improve on to achieve results that reflect your proficiency in English language.

Academic and General Training

IELTS is offered in two formats – Academic and General Training.

The Academic tests assess a candidate’s ability to study or train at a tertiary and undergraduate level or higher in the medium of English. Academic registrations and admissions are based on the IELTS tests results.
The General Training tests are suitable for a candidate who is heading to English-speaking countries for work experience, training programs or secondary education. The test will focus on basic survival skills in the broad workplace and social context. It is also a requirement for migration to the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Academic and General Training test versions differ in context, content and purpose of the tasks, but reporting of scores and time allocation remain the same.

Candidate should and is responsible for informing the test administration centre on their choice of the test in Academic or General Training. Please check with the relevant centres as not all offer the General Training test.

Test Format

Candidates are assessed in these key areas: writing, reading, listening and speaking, which covers a comprehensive range of abilities in English Language, from non-user to expert user, and scored on a nine-point scale. Regardless of Academic and General Training, all candidates will take the same Speaking and Listening tests. However, for the Reading and Writing test components, the subject matter differs depending on the test you take.

The first three tests – Writing, Reading, Listening – are to be completed in one day with no breaks in between. The Speaking test component can be taken, at the discretion of the test centre, in the period of a week before or after completing the other tests.

The entire test time is approximately 3 hours.
