Which IELTS is right for me?
IELTS™ has two formats of the test – Academic and General training.
Academic Training – Institutions of Higher and Further Education
The Academic test is for those who wish to study or train in an English-speaking university or Institutions of Higher and further education.
General Training – for school, work or migration
The General Training test is for those who wish to work or to do training programs, secondary school or migrate to an English-speaking country.
It should be noted that certain professions require an Academic test result for registration and migration purposes. Contact the organisation or institution to which you are applying to find out what it requires
All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests but different Reading and Writing tests

In this 14-minute section, is usually a conversation about you, your life, your aspirations, your studies and your town. You should be ready to talk on these subjects.
In addition, the examiner will show you a card with an argument and you will have to that. Use simple words and expressions.
This is to test your ability to communicate what you think. Your accent, pronunciation, etc are not all that important. What is more important is your understanding of what the examiner says and your ability to communicate clearly and effectively. The conversation usually lasts 15-20 minutes and will be recorded
