About Introducing IELTS



INTRODUCING IELTS 

What is the IELTS exam?

The international English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world's largest exam, and as its name suggest, it is used to test English language for college and university entrance, as well as for immigration or registration with professional bodies.
There are two kinds of IELTS tests: the academic test for further study and the General Training (GT) test for immigration.
There is no pass or fail with IELTS. Instead,there are bands that show a person's level. 
These bands range from 0-9. A Zero is a candidate who didn't come for the test; and a Nine is a native speaker-someone whose English is perfect. A five is a person who makes a lot of mistakes but can generally be understood. A Six is still an intermediate speaker, whereas a Seven is starting to get good. An Eight has perhaps only five or six errors in his or her 650 words of writing, and in the speaking test, makes only very occasional errors. 
A six is not that hard to score, but a seven takes years of intensive study and usually residence in an English speaking country.
The bands are used by different institutions or authorities. If you want to attend university in many English-speaking countries, you need at least IELTS 5.5-the more famous the university, or the course, the higher the score you need. If you want permanent residence in canada, you need a seven. If you are a nurse and you want to continue nursing in australia, then you also need a seven overall, including a Seven in Speaking. 
IELTS has full and half bands, meaning that a person who gets 6.5 is better than a Six, but not yet a Seven. 
One thing to note about these scores is that it's rather easy to go from a four to a 4.5, or even a five to a 5.5, but to progress beyond Six takes much longer. There are also candidates who never reach Six. You can't just take the test, take it again, and again and again, and hop on the fifth attempt you'll be handed a 6.5. 
No. You've got to fit the description of 6.5 in order to get it.
If you'd like to know which nationalities or first languages currently achieve which scores, go to the IELTS website: www.ielts.org. There's plenty of interesting data there as well as free practice materials.

What are the four parts of the test?

IELTS is made up of four sub-tests. candidates do all of them on one or two days . 
They are, in the order that they take place: Listening, Writing, and Speaking. The four tests are equally weighted, or if you think of it another way: worth 25% each. A band is given for each one, and there is also an average or Overall Band. 
A candidate receives a report within two weeks of taking the test with five scores on it like this:
Listening                
  7
Reading                 
  6.5
Writing                  
  6
Speaking               
  6.5

Overall Band = 6.5

You can see that the candidate above was best at Listening and worst at Writing. Reading and Speaking were the same. 
The majority of candidates receive of report like this. It's very rare for one skill to be much better than another.
But what was the Listening test? What did the candidate need to do for writing?
Read the table below about the IELTS Academic test to understand exactly what happens.
GT is the same as Academic for Listening and Speaking, but a little different for Reading and Writing.
