What can I expect with the test?
IELTS is a paper-and-pencil test with 4 sections: Listening, Reading, Writing
and Speaking, and includes a live, face-to-face speaking interview with a
trained and certified examiner. This allows for a more realistic measure of a
speaker’s English proficiency and real-world communication abilities.
As a test of English as an “international” language, IELTS uses all standard
varieties of English — American, Australian, and British, and includes different
question task types (for example, matching plan/map/diagram labelling, multiple
choice, short-answer, etc.). This is to ensure the test is relevant and fair to
test takers regardless of cultural background or where they studied English.
Which IELTS test should I take?
There are two IELTS tests to choose from — Academic and General Training. IELTS
Academic is used for higher education and professional certification. IELTS
General Training is used for work or migration purposes. The Listening and
Speaking sections of IELTS are the same for both Academic and General Training,
however, test takers take different Reading and Writing sections, depending on
the test they choose.
The Academic Reading includes authentic texts from books, journals, newspapers,
etc., whereas the General Training Reading includes authentic texts from company
handbooks, official documents, books, newspapers, etc. The differences between
the Academic Writing and General Training Writing are in the content, nature,
and contextual parameters of the tasks.
IELTS Test Structure
There are two modules of the IELTS:
Academic Module and
General Training Module
There is also a separate test offered by the IELTS test partners, called IELTS
IELTS Academic is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and
other institutions of higher education and for professionals such as medical
doctors and nurses who want to study or practise in an English-speaking country.

Sections 3 and 4 are about educational and training situations
Section 3 is a conversation between two main speakers (for example, a discussion
between two university students, perhaps guided by a tutor)
Section 4 has one person speaking about an academic subject.
Each section begins with a short introduction telling the test taker about the
situation and the speakers. Then they have some time to look through the
questions. The questions are in the same order as the information in the
recording, so the answer to the first question will be before the answer to the
second question, and so on. The first three sections have a break in the
middle allowing test takers to look at the remaining questions. Each section is
heard only once.
At the end of the test students are given 10 minutes to transfer their answers
to an answer sheet. Test takers will lose marks for incorrect spelling and
The Reading paper has three sections and texts totaling 2,150-2,750 words. There
will be a variety of question types, such as multiple choice, short-answer
questions, identifying information, identifying writer’s views, labeling
diagrams, completing a summary using words taken from the text and matching
information/headings/features in the text/sentence endings. Test takers should
be careful when writing down their answers as they will lose marks for incorrect
spelling and grammar.
Texts in IELTS Academic

and online resources written for non-specialist audiences. All the topics are
of general interest to students at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

descriptions, contracts, training materials.
Section 3 contains one long text about a topic of general interest. The text
is generally descriptive, longer and more complex than the texts in Sections 1
and 2. The text will be taken from a newspaper, magazine, book or online
The Writing paper has two tasks which must both be completed. In task 1 test
takers write at least 150 words in about 20 minutes. In task 2 test takers write
at least 250 words in about 40 minutes. Test takers will be penalised if their

Section 2: long turn (3–4 minutes). Test takers are given a task card about a
particular topic. Test takers have one minute to prepare to talk about this
topic. The task card states the points that should be included in the talk and
one aspect of the topic which must be explained during the talk. Test takers are
then expected to talk about the topic for 2 minutes, after which the examiner
may ask one or two questions.
Section 3: discussions (4–5 minutes). The third section involves a discussion
between the examiner and the test taker, generally on questions relating to
the theme which they have already spoken about in Section 2.

The Reading component comprises 40 questions. A variety of question types
is used in order to test a wide range of reading skills. These include reading
for gist, reading for main ideas, reading for detail, skimming, understanding
logical argument and recognizing writers’ opinions, attitudes and purpose.
Reading – Academic
The Academic version
includes three long texts, which range from the descriptive and factual
to the discursive and analytical. The texts are authentic and are taken
from books, journals, magazines and newspapers. These have been selected
for a non-specialist audience but are recognizably appropriate for anyone
entering undergraduate or postgraduate courses or seeking professional registration.
Reading – General
The General Training
version requires you to read extracts from books, magazines, newspapers,
notices, advertisements, company handbooks and guidelines. These are materials
you are likely to encounter on a daily basis in an English-speaking environment.
Duration: 60 minutes)
Writing – Academic
The Writing component
of the Academic version includes two tasks. Topics are of general interest
to, and suitable for, anyone entering undergraduate or postgraduate studies
or seeking professional registration.
You will be presented with a graph, table, chart or diagram and are asked
to describe, summarise or explain the information in your own words. You
may be asked to describe and explain data, describe the stages of a process,
how something works or describe an object or event.
You will be asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, argument
or problem. Responses to both tasks must be written in a formal style.
Writing – General
The Writing component
of the General Training version includes two tasks, which are based on topics
of general interest.
You will be presented with a situation and asked to write a letter requesting
information or explaining the situation. The letter may be personal, semi-formal
or formal in style.
You will be asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, argument
or problem. The essay can be slightly more personal in style than the Academic
Writing Task 2 essay.

English and takes between 11 and 14 minutes to complete. Every test is recorded.
note: The Speaking component is the same for both Academic and General Training
You will be asked to answer general questions about
yourself and a range of familiar topics, such as your home, family, work,
studies and interests. This part lasts between four and five minutes.
You will be given a card that asks you to talk about
a particular topic. You will have one minute to prepare before speaking
for up to two minutes. The examiner then asks you one or two questions on
the same topic to finish this part of the test.
You will be asked further questions connected to the topic in Part 2. These
questions give you an opportunity to discuss more abstract issues and ideas.
