IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing system. It operates on a nine point band, where a nine indicates that the student has a level of English equivalent to a highly educated native speaker, and it tests all four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) in an academic context. Generally speaking, undergraduate students need to obtain a score of 5.5 to 6.0 overall to gain university admission and postgraduate students need a score of 6.5 overall. Some universities will ask for higher grades for all courses, or for specific programs. The IELTS exam can be taken at centers worldwide and at frequent intervals throughout the year. Candidates pay a fee to take the exam.
IELTS is the world’s proven English test. Over 1.4 million candidates take the test each year to start their journeys into international education and employment.
IELTS is recognized by more than 6000 institutions in over 135 countries.
We Education Concern® offer IELTS classes which are being run by highly qualified staff. You can join us and achieve the IELTS band that you require with ease. We run new classes every week so that any student can join us with comfort and achieve their desired band.
