International English Language Testing System, widely known by the acronym IELTS, measures a candidate’s ability to use all four language skills, listening, reading, writing and speaking in English. IELTS is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, British Council and IDP Education Australia. The test is designed for those people who plan to study or work in an English-language speaking country. The test focuses on International English, which includes British English, American English and other varieties like Australian or South African English.


Around 6,000 academic and professional establishments around the world recognize IELTS scores as a valid indicator of ability to use English to communicate. Over 1,000,000 aspirants take IELTS to pursue their dream career abroad. IELTS, taken every year across 120 countries, is one of the fastest growing English language tests in the world.


IELTS is accepted by most British, Australian, Canadian, Irish and New Zealand educational institutions for higher education. IELTS is gaining recognition in the US as an alternative to TOEFL. However, not all academic institutions in the US accept the IELTS score.
