That IELTS qualification is officially recognized in over 135 countries as proficiency in English language and opens the door for immigration, job purposes and education is reason enough to take the IELTS examination. In short, it is the most widely accepted English test throughout the world. The reason for IELTS popularity can be attributed to the strict quality control criteria that the course structure and examination establish.

Besides being a good training ground to polish your existing English skills, the IELTS exam serves to address specific skills such as reading, writing, speaking and listening to English. In addition to all of these, the IELTS course covers both American and British English. This opens up numerous possibilities.


As per the regulations set up by the three official bodies that conduct IELTS:

1) the British Council,

2) IDP: IELTS Australia, and

3) Cambridge English Language Assessment,

There are no minimum eligibility criteria that are to be met for writing the IELTS exam. Any individual that wishes to pursue work opportunities abroad or seeking education in the English-speaking countries can appear for this test. Trainers from IELTS Coaching centre in Chennaioffers the real-time experience to the students.

The IELTS examination is conducted as per two formats: IELTS (Academic) and IELTS (General Training). However, the organization or educational institution that the candidate wants to be associated with may have some basic criteria that have to be satisfied.

Some of the most popular countries where IELTS scores are requested by universities and other educational institutions are New Zealand, US, UK, Canada and Australia.

Whereas students need to appear for the IELTS (Academic) test, other candidates that require a work visa or for the purpose of immigration need to appear for the IELTS (General Training) test. The candidates are required to pay a registration fee to appear for the IELTS examination.
