Why IELTS is required?

August 2016

Anyone who wishes to work overseas or study abroad may have to give the IELTS at some point. Many institutions and organisations rely on the IELTS to select the right people. It is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on- one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. The International English Language Testing System, evaluates the language ability of candidates that need to study or work, where English is the language of communication. This test is also approved by UK Visas and Immigration for customers applying both outside and inside the UK as well as for immigration to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

There are two modules to the IELTS- Academic and General. IELTS Academic is for those who wish to seek admission to higher educational institutes or for professionals who want to study or practise in an English speaking country. Some universities in Non English speaking countries also require the IELTS, since English is the language of instruction. The General training is for those who intend on studying at below degree level and for immigration purposes

IELTS avoids cultural biases, and ensures that all test takers are treated fair, regardless of any special needs that they may have. However, a medical certificate has to be issued within the last two years at the time of registering for the exam. The test consists of questions that are relevant to how people need to use English in their studies or work. In terms of spelling, grammar and choice of words, IELTS covers both British English and American English. Whether it is studying in the US, UK or another English-speaking country, IELTS gives you the chance to train your ear to different native English accents.

Scored on a nine-band scale, no minimum score is required to pass the test, each institution sets a different threshold, where each band corresponds to a specified competence in English. Institutions will not consider a report older than two years to be valid, unless the user has worked to maintain their level. The IELTS has administered over a million tests, making it the world's most popular English language test for higher education and immigration. The convenient dates and locations in over 140 countries provide a range of options on where to take the test. You can also choose to book your tests with the flexible payment options available online. The results for these test scores are available online within just 13 days of your exam date.


What Edwise Students studying Say...

"I am very thankful to Edwise for helping me score an 8.0 band in my IELTS. I joined the IELTS classes with a lot of apprehensions. But from the first class itself I felt extremely comfortable. The faculty here has provided me with personal training and this has helped me clear my examination with flying colors. I would once again like to thank the entire staff of Edwise who helped my dream come true."
Shruti Preman - IELTS Coaching

"My experience with Edwise coaching was very good! I started coaching with 5 other students and with no appropriate knowledge or idea about IELTS, its procedures and protocols. My faculty was a boon to us by giving us not only the thorough insight of the IELTS, but made it a fun process for us. To me personally, I couldn't have expected a better teacher for it. The faculty at Edwise not just makes us feel involved, but gives us a good support especially in disciplines that we lack in. The teaching pedagogy at Edwise helps us find our strengths and weakness & ace the exams. The job and concern not just ends after IELTS, but also follows up with us on our exam and our results."
Vizak Gagrat -IELTS Coaching

"After enrolling in Edwise I felt that I am at the right place to pursue further higher education, because the knowledge and the guidance given by the faculty here gave me a positive look towards my goal. The coaching was well planned and proper attention was given by the faculty guiding me. I have already suggested few of my friends to go forward with IELTS through Edwise coaching."
