International English Language Testing System

The IELTS test is often a pre-requisite to enter Australian & UK universities. It is also helpful in application for business organisations. The IELTS test comes in two versions, academic & general. The academic version is often required for university/college admissions. The general version is primarily for training programs, secondary school admissions, and immigration.
