IELTS exams - get proof of your English skills

The IELTS is your international „English driver's license“ for success in education and employment. When it comes to a coveted college place in the US and Canada, or your dream job „down under“, there is no better alternative than IELTS.

IELTS – International English Language Testing System

Every year, approximately 1.4 million people worldwide take the internationally recognised IELTS test to prepare for business or personal trips abroad. This exam is required for admission to universities and colleges in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Furthermore, it is frequently required for work permits in a variety of professional fields. The IELTS exam is available in over 1,100 testing centres across 120 countries. While an IELTS preparation course is not strictly necessary if your English proficiency is already high, it is still advisable to thoroughly familiarise yourself with the rather difficult test format in advance. The exam, which assesses your listening, reading, writing, and speaking abilities, usually lasts three hours. The final score on this test can range from 1 (indicating "non-user" level) to 9 (indicating "expert-user" level).

Frequently Asked Questions

The test can be taken on paper or on a computer, always at an official test centre. However, there is no difference between the questions in either format.

Yes! If the test taker doesn't attempt to answer the questions, he or she will be given a score of zero and a skill level called "Did not attempt the test".

According to IELTS itself, the overall score obtained at the end of the test is the average of the scores from the four sections, i.e. the Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking tests. The scores from the sections are weighted equally when calculating the average, so that no one section has greater value than another in the final result. The 4 language skills are assessed in such a way that they are equally important in attesting to English proficiency.
