Introduction

IELTS stands for International English language testing System. It is conducted by three institutions, namely, the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment (University of Cambridge).

Students aspiring to study abroad in the English-speaking nations, need to clear an English language proficiency test. Candidates whose native language is not English, have to prove their ability to read, write, speak, and understand English, so as to be able to follow lectures, study, take exams, and interact comfortably with fellow students, teachers and the local population. Hence, a standardised English language proficiency test for non-native English speakers has been established as a pre-requisite for the selection process, and also for immigration purpose.
