IELTS provides a valid, reliable and accurate assessment of the four language skills: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. An easy to use 9-band scale clearly identifies proficiency levels.
IELTS treats all test takers with the utmost fairness and respect by actively avoiding cultural bias and by accepting all standard varieties of native-speaker English, including North American, British, Australian and New Zealand English. Special arrangements are also available for test takers with visual, hearing or learning difficulties.
Fair and consistent delivery of the test is ensured by secure technology and the continual monitoring of examiners, test results, and test centre management and facilities.
This high quality and secure test helps organisations like yours (whether an educational institution, government, professional body or commercial organisation) identify people with the appropriate level of English language proficiency.
