The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test is the most widely used English language competency assessment in the world. This test is primarily taken by students seeking higher education as well as professionals seeking work permits or relocating to another nation. Academic IELTS and General IELTS are the two variants of the IELTS Test. The Academic IELTS test is for students who want to study abroad, while the General IELTS test is for persons who want to move to another country permanently. Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking are the four components of both.
Four test sections: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking

Listening (Duration: 30 minutes)
• You'll listen to four recorded texts - monologues and conversations from a variety of native speakers • and then compose your responses to a set of questions.
• These include questions that assess your ability to comprehend main ideas and specific facts, as well as the speakers' viewpoints and attitudes.
• They also assess your ability to decipher the meaning of what is spoken and follow the progression of thoughts.
• During the test, you will hear a range of voices and native-speaker accents, and you will only hear each portion once.
• Both Academic and General Training versions include the identical Listening component.
Section 1: A dialogue between two people in a common social setting, such as an accommodation agency.
Section 2 : A monologue placed in a common social setting, such as a speech about local amenities.
Section 3 An instructional or training discourse involving up to four persons, such as a university tutor and a student discussing an assignment.
Section 4: A monologue about a scholarly topic, similar to a university lecture.

Reading (Duration: 60 minutes)
• There are 40 questions in the Reading section. To assess a wide range of reading abilities, a variety of question formats are used.
• Reading for gist, key ideas, detail, skimming, understanding logical argument, and recognising writers' viewpoints, attitudes, and intent are all examples of this.

Academic version of reading
• Three large texts are included in the Academic version, ranging from descriptive and factual to discursive and analytical. The texts are derived from books, journals, periodicals, and newspapers and are authentic.
• These were chosen for a non-specialist audience, but they are appropriate for anyone beginning undergraduate or postgraduate studies or seeking professional registration.
General Training Version of Reading
• You must read excerpts from books, periodicals, newspapers, notices, advertising, company handbooks, and instructions in the General Training version. In an English-speaking environment, you are likely to come across these things on a daily basis.

Writing (Duration: 60 minutes)

Academic version of writing
Two activities are included in the Academic version's Writing section.

The themes are of general interest to anyone starting undergraduate or postgraduate studies or pursuing professional registration, and they are appropriate for them.
1st task
• A graph, table, chart, or diagram will be provided to you, and you will be asked to describe, summarise, or explain the information in your own words.
• You may be requested to describe and explain data, process phases, how something works, or a specific object or event.

2nd Task
• In response to a point of view, argument, or problem, you will be required to compose an essay.
• Both activities need responses to be written in a formal style.

General Training Version of Writing
Two assignments are included in the Writing component of the Popular Training edition, both of which are based on topics of general interest.

1st task
• A problem will be presented to you, and you will be asked to compose a letter asking information or describing the situation. The letter might be written in a personal, semi-formal, or official tone.

2nd Task
• In response to a point of view, argument, or problem, you will be required to compose an essay. The style of the essay can be a little more personal than the Academic Writing Task 2 essay.


Speaking (Duration: 11 to 14 minutes)

The Speaking section takes 11 to 14 minutes to complete and evaluates your usage of spoken English. Every test is kept track of.
The Speaking component, like the Listening component, is the same for both Academic and General Training versions.

1st part

• You'll be asked general questions about yourself as well as a variety of familiar themes including your home, family, work, school, and hobbies. This section lasts four to five minutes.

Part two
• You'll be handed a card that asks you to discuss a specific topic. Before speaking for up to two minutes, you will have one minute to prepare.

Part three

• This section lasts four to five minutes.
• Your reactions will be spontaneous because the Speaking component is presented in such a way.
