International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is meant to assess the English fluency of candidates who plan to study, work or migrate to English speaking countries. The test validity is 2 years. There are two types of tests General Training Tests and Academic Module Tests. You can either opt for pen and paper tests or computer based tests.

The full form of OET is Occupational English Test. It is an English language test exclusively meant for health professionals.  The content is health related and the scores are graded from A to E. Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapist, and other medical and paramedical professionals can take this test to work or to migrate to English speaking countries. However, it is not accepted for higher studies.

IELTS Academic is meant for those who plan to study abroad or work abroad, while General training tests are meant for migration purposes. However, in case of job visa, some companies do not specify which test you need to take. In such cases you can take either. You can opt for General Training as it is comparatively easier.

UKVI is the test meant for UK Visa Immigration purposes. IELTS and IELTS for UKVI are the same in terms of format, content, scoring and level of difficulty. However, the Test Report Form which contains your results is slightly different to show that you have taken the test at an official IELTS for UKVI location, which is approved by the UK Home Office. The test centers are different and the fees is also slightly higher.

Yes. UKVI scores can be used when asked for IELTS scores. However, you cannot use IELTS scores when asked specifically for UKVI. Like IELTS you have GT as well as AT for UKVI.

The content of the IELTS on computer test is identical to the IELTS on paper test, but instead of writing your answers on paper, you enter them on a computer. The only differences occur in the testing environment. IELTS on computer tests are done in smaller, custom-designed test centres where each test-taker has their own computer. IELTS on paper tests, on the other hand, are conducted in larger rooms with more participants. However, speaking test is conducted in exactly similar manner in both cases. It will be a one on one interaction with your IELTS examiner.

 One key advantage of IELTS on computer testing is that you get your results faster: you can sit the test today and get your results next week. Results are typically delivered within 3-5 days for IELTS on computer tests, while results for IELTS on paper tests are available within 13 calendar days.

It all comes down to preference and speed of typing. Some people are more comfortable with a pencil in hand, whereas others prefer typing and clicking their responses. Try some practice tests before deciding which test you would like to book.

The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Listening 30-35 minutes plus 10 minutes to transfer the answers from the question paper to the answer sheet . For computer based tests you get only 2 minutes to check the answers in the end as you directly type the answers to the computer.

Reading -60 minutes

Writing- 60 minutes

Speaking – 11-14 minutes (Usually conducted on a different day which is informed through your mail. It could be a few days prior or later than the test   date.)

Both the Academic and General Training exam have four parts – listening, speaking, reading and writing. The Speaking and Listening tests are exactly similar in both tests.

 But GT writing has a Letter (Task 1) and Essay (Task 2) and AC writing has a Graph (Task 1) and an Essay (Task 2).

For AC Reading you get 3 long passages which are descriptive, factual, and analytical. The reading module may also include diagrams, graphs or illustrations. For the GT module, in the first section, there are two or three short texts. In the second section, there are two short, work-related texts. In the final section, there is one long text about a general interest topic.

IELTS results are reported on a 9-band scale. The Test Report Form (TRF) provides your overall band score and band scores out of 9 for each of the four sections: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The overall band score is the average of the four sections scores, rounded to the nearest whole or half band. The sections scores are weighted equally.
