The acronym IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. It is an English language ability exam which measures the ability of examinees to communicate in the four main basic language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.
The IELTS is managed by three main institutions: the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations.
The IELTS exam is essentially an examination of British and not American English. Hence, during the preparation the students must prepare for British English. Apparently, there are many grammatical, spelling and pronunciation differences in British and American English. Thus, the students must focus on attaining proficiency in British English and not American English.
Types of exams:-
There are two versions of the IELTS exam: General and Academic. Examinees must know in advance which one is needed for their purposes as the scores are not interchangeable. Each test lasts two hours and fifty-five minutes.
Important Note: This is important to select the right version of the IELTS exam because the scores are not interchangeable so there’s no point in studying for or appearing for the wrong exam!
General IELTS Test: This test is the simpler test. It focuses on basic survival skills in social and educational contexts. It is generally requested for candidates applying for immigration, working in certain professions, or studying at a non-degree level.
Academic IELTS TEST: The test is the more advanced test. This version is generally used to determine whether candidates are qualified to enroll in undergraduate and graduate academic programs where English is the medium of instruction.
The listening and the speaking modules are the same but the reading and the writing modules are slightly different.
