IELTS includes a face-to-face speaking test with a qualiﬁed and trained examiner who interacts with and assesses the test taker’s communicative skills in English. This prompts a more realistic performance from test takers than simply responding to recorded cues from a computer. Institutions and employers can, therefore, better be able to identify test takers who can communicate effectively in English.
IELTS gives a reliable indication of entry level English Proficiency. Other tests are less satisfactory at providing this.
As part of our assessment processes all IELTS reports are verified using the online IELTS results verification site. Access to this site has enabled us to ensure that the IELTS results we receive are genuine.
