sheet of the IELTS exam questions


The IELTS exam consists of four parts which are taken on the same day or separate days depending on the center where you take your IELTS exam. The student is tested for those four parts or bands as they are often referred to.The reason why they are important is because universities and colleges determine the minimum score students must achieve in each band to be admissible for the course they intend to study. Those four bands are:

  • IELTS speaking: Tests students level of proficiency in spoken English
  • IELTS listening: Tests students level of proficiency in listening skills
  • IELTS reading: Tests students level of proficiency in listening skills
  • IELTS writing: Tests students level of proficiency in reading English

IELTS Online Test

Unfortunately, there is no official or accepted IELTS online which can issue a formal or approved IELTS certificate that international universities and medical schools would accept. Students must take their IELTS exam in one of the British Council approved exam centers or one of the UKVI approved centers for running the UKVI IELTS test.

The IELTS online test should be done purely for IELTS practice only and to get familiar with the questions, test methods, and timing. On the day of the exam, remember to take with you an original ID like a passport or national ID card and to be on the safe side make sure to arrive at least half an hour before the test time.

So the IELTS results will determine whether the student receive unconditional acceptance letter for the course they want to study.
