The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination is designed to test your all-round skill in the English language. This examination is to be taken by those who wish to work or pursue their studies in an English speaking country. Many countries, like U.S.A, U.K, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland have made this test mandatory, to ensure that the candidates enrolled are capable of handling the language effectively.
There are two versions of the test: the Academic Module and the General Module. Students who wish to do their undergraduate or postgraduate studies, or are professionals like teachers, nurses and doctors have to take the Academic Module. The General Training Module is designed for those candidates who plan to undertake training or secondary school education. You can enquire with the agency receiving your score to decide which exam to take.
