The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication.
More than 135 countries and over 9000 organizations around the world accept IELTS as proof one is capable of communicating effectively in the English language. So its reputation as a good test of English proficiency expands beyond English-only speaking countries.
There are two types of IELTS tests: the Academic Test and the General Training Test.
The IELTS General Training test is for those who are going to English speaking countries for secondary education, work experience or training programs.
The IELTS Academic test is for people applying for higher education or professional registration in an English speaking environment
You will use the Test scores for your Visa or school application. We can assist you with that as well (at a very affordable fee).
In Ghana, Tests are taken in Accra, Kumasi and Tamale.
You will need your ID (valid passport/national identity card). You must have the same identification that you provided on your IELTS Application form. If you do not have the correct identification document, you will not be able to take the test
It depends on the ability of the student. However, a 3 month period can be enough to prepare one to ace the Test.
A speaking test is a part of the IELTS exam that typically aims to test English speaking proficiency. You don’t need to flaunt a western accent to get a high score. Just use your natural accent and focus on speaking clearly and at a natural pace so the examiner will understand you.
The Writing, Speaking and Reading sections of the IELTS exam lasts for 2 hours, 45 minutes. The speaking section lasts 11 – 14 minutes a week before or after the paper.
The Test is rated on a scale of 0 (zero) to nine (9). An expert-level score of 9 means the test taker has fully operational command of the language. Their use of English is appropriate, accurate and fluent, and shows complete understanding.
You can write the Test as many times as you wish.
Your IELTS score is valid for 2 years after the reslts release date.
Although the IELTS test has two different versions (IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training), each version on the same day is the same everywhere in the world; so, in fact, the test itself is not any easier for anyone
