What is IELTS?

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It assesses your ability to communicate in English in all four language skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It is for people who want to  study or work where English is the language of communication such UK or Australia. What is in IELTS? Actually, there are questions which focus on your ability to apply your English Language Skills that you’ve learned previously. IELTS is recognised internationally by more than 6,000 education institutions worldwide. IELTS is adminsitered by the Cambridge ESOL, British Council, IDP Australia (International Development Program) and IELTS Australia. There are two versions of IELTS: Academic and General. The Academic IELTS is for students and General IELTS is for immigration or for students seeking vocational training. IELTS is recognized by American Universities, too.

IELTS Test Format: 
Good news is that there’s no pass or fail in IELTS. There are higher scores or bands that you are supposed to show. You will need to contact the university you wish to enter to find out the IELTS score they require for entry into your chosen course or the concerned immigration department. You will receive a band score for each module – Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking, and an overall band score for the test. Your IELTS score is valid for two years. There are four modules in IELTS. The first three modules- Listening, Reading and Writing must be completed in one day. The Speaking may be taken, at the discretion of the test centre, on the same day or up to two days earlier or later.
Marking: 
IELTS has a strict, quality-assured system for marking every IELTS test. There are trained examiners to mark your test, who follow standardised procedures. The examiners hold appropriate teaching qualifications and are certificated by Cambridge ESOL. Each examiner is tested every two years to retain their certification and they frequently go through trainings. The IELTS incorporated system of hiring, training, benchmarking, certification and monitoring for IELTS examiners makes sure they are fully qualified, experienced and effective.

IELTS Registration: 

In Pakistan IELTS is conducted by the British Council and AEO (Australian Education Office).There is no difference between British Council IELTS and AEO IELTS, you can register and take the test with either at your ease. Both sites conduct the same IELTS test. AEO offices in Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore conduct IELTS tests quite frequently. You can get IELTS application form by visiting any of the AEO offices in Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad or it can also be downloaded from ielts.org. You can visit the AEO office personally with complete application form to submit your IELTS test application. If there is no AEO office in your city applications can also be sent through Mail or Courier. British Council offices in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Multan and Quetta offer IELTS test on a regular basis. Before you submit your application form for an IELTS test make sure you attach a photocopy of your valid National Identity Card or Passport and two recent color(blue back ground)passport size photographs with the IELTS application form. You are also expected to write your full name and signature on the reverse of each photograph. You are supposed to paste one photograph steadily with glue and attach the other one using a paper clip to the IELTS Application form. Both photographs must be identical, colour photographs with a blue background and should not be more than six months old. Black and white photographs will not be accepted. These are the guidelines are for recommendation only. The decision to accept the photographs submitted by a candidate is at the Administrator’s discretion.
