Default I Want To Know About IELTS

Hii sir, I Wants to give the IELTS Exam Will you Please provide me the Information About the IELTS Exam ?

The International English Language Testing System or IELTS is an international standardised test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment,

the IELTS Exam has Four Parts

Listening: 30 minutes (plus 10 minutes' transfer time)
Reading: 60 minutes
Writing: 60 minutes
Speaking: 11–14 minutes

Examination Pattern :


The module comprises four sections, with ten questions in each section.

Sections 1 and 2 are about everyday, social situations.

Section 1 has a conversation between two speakers (for example, a conversation about travel arrangements)

Section 2 has one person speaking (for example, a speech about local facilities).

Sections 3 and 4 are about educational and training situations

Section 3 is a conversation between two main speakers

Section 4 has one person speaking about an academic subject.

Reading Section

Texts in IELTS General Training

Section 1 contains two or three short texts or several shorter texts, which deal with everyday topics. For example, timetables or notices – things a person would need to understand when living in an English-speaking country.

Section 2 contains two texts, which deal with work. For example, job 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 resource.

Writing Section

Task 1: test takers describe a graph, table, chart or diagram in their own words.
Task 2: test takers discuss a point of view, argument or problem. Depending on the task, test takers may be required to present a solution to a problem, present and justify an opinion, compare and contrast evidence, opinions and implications, and evaluate and challenge ideas, evidence or an argument

Speaking Section

The speaking test contains three sections.

Section 1: introduction and interview (4–5 minutes). Test takers may be asked about their home, family, work, studies, hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet.

Section 2: long turn (3–4 minutes). Test takers are given a task card about a particular topic.

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

Scoring :

Test takers receive a score for each test component – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The individual scores are then averaged and rounded to produce an Overall Band Score
