What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test that measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work in environments where English is used as a language of communication. The test is scored using a 9-band scale that identifies a user’s proficiency level from non-user (band score 1) to expert (band score 9). Various educational institutions, colleges and universities set a particular band score as an admissions requirement for international students and non-native English speakers. For example:
