ABOUT THE IELTS
The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) assesses the language ability of people who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. It is an internationally recognised qualification and entry requirement for universities in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. It is also widely used by governments as a language proficiency guide when issuing work visas and is accepted by various professional organizations.
It consists of four modules as listening ,Reading ,Writing and Speaking.,and it is available in two test formats as Academic or General Training. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking modules but different Reading and Writing modules. All candidates must complete four Modules – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking – to obtain a band score, which is shown on the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF). Listening, Reading and Writing must be completed in one day. Depending on candidate’s test centre, the Speaking test may be offered on the same day or up to a week before or after the other parts.
IELTS is scored on a nine-band scale, with each band corresponding to a specified competence in English. Overall Band Scores are reported to the nearest half band.The following rounding convention applies: if the average across the four skills ends in .25, it is rounded up to the next half band, and if it ends in .75, it is rounded up to the next whole band.
Test format of the IELTS
The listening module comprises four sections. Each section begins with a short introduction telling the candidates about the situation and the speakers. Then they have some time to look through the questions. The first three sections have a break in the middle allowing candidates to look at the remaining questions. Each section is heard only once.
In the academic module the reading test comprises three sections, with 3 texts normally followed by 13 or 14 questions for a total of 40 questions overall. The General test also has 3 sections. However the texts are shorter, so there can be up to 5 texts to read.
In the Academic module, there are two tasks: in Task 1 candidates describe a diagram, graph, process or chart, and in Task 2 they respond to an argument. In the General Training module, there are also two tasks: in Task 1 candidates write a letter or explain a situation, and in Task 2 they write an essay.
The speaking test contains three sections. The first section takes the form of an interview during which candidates may be asked about their hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet or family. In the second section candidates are given a topic card and then have one minute to prepare after which they must speak about the given topic. The third section involves a discussion between the examiner and the candidate, generally on questions relating to the theme which they have already spoken about in part 2.
