A test of all four language skills

Why is the IELTS test format fairer for you?

You deserve a fair chance to do your best.
Unlike other tests, IELTS gives you a quiet room with no distractions for your Speaking test.
IELTS recognises that people have different approaches to answering questions.
For example, with IELTS, you can answer in the order that suits you.
You can go back and make changes to your Reading and Writing answers during the allocated time.
You won’t get timed out on individual questions as you do in many other tests.
