Why IELTS & What is IELTS?

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is designed to assess the language ability of candidates and prove that they can read, write, speak, and understand English so as to study or work where English is the main language of communication. For the academics as well as for the purpose of immigration, a standardised English language proficiency test for non-native English speakers has been established as a pre-requisite for the selection process. It is conducted by three institutions, namely, the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment (University of Cambridge).

Purpose
