The International English Language Testing System,is an international standardised test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. IELTS is one of the two major English-language tests in the world.
Academic is used by people who want to enter undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, or enter some kind of professional association in an English-speaking country.
General training is used by people who want to work or emigrate to an English-speaking country, and study or train in any field, but without obtaining a university degree (below degree level).
The grade scale varies from 0-9, a generally acceptable score to have would be around 7. Our students constantly have a band score above 7 (with the mean band score for Greece being 6.6). Universities lay special emphasis on Reading and Writing scores. A number of universities set a minimum score for those 2 sections.
TOEFL or IELTS
British universities prefer IELTS, the rest of the European Universities accept both, but you have to be very careful as some institutions in the UK do not accept TOEFL anymore. Also, a number of the American institutions do not accept IELTS, so you have to visit their official pages to check it.
Yes, unless you have a Proficiency received in the past 2 years with a score above B.
Absolutely. In fact you use only official papers.
Total time is 3 hours. But you take the test on 2 days. On the one day you have the Reading, Listening and Writing Section (2 hours and 40 minutes) and on the other day the Speaking (15 minutes).
You should take the IELTS as early as possible before the graduate school application deadlines. Some universities may also accept pending scores; so that gives you some extra time to prepare.
