The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures English proficiency for individuals whose first language is not English. The British Council jointly administers the test, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment. IELTS is a paper-based exam with two versions available: the Academic Module and the General Training Module. Annually, over two million people undertake the IELTS exam. It comprises four components: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking, with scores ranging from 0 to 9. IELTS scores are recognized by more than 10,000 entities in 140 countries, including government bodies, academic institutions, and employers.

Ways to take IELTS

IELTS on paper

Examinees at an official IELTS testing center take the Listening, Reading, and Writing tests at a designated desk equipped with the necessary question papers and answer sheets. They can opt to provide their responses using either a pen or pencil. On the other hand, the Speaking test is conducted in person with a certified IELTS examiner.

IELTS on computer

In an official IELTS testing center, candidates complete their Listening, Reading, and Writing tests using a computer. The questions are presented on the screen, and the answers are inputted via a keyboard and mouse. Conversely, the Speaking test is administered in person, involving direct interaction with a certified IELTS examiner.

IELTS Online

IELTS Online serves as an alternate method for taking the IELTS Academic test. It adheres to the same structure, content, timing, and scoring criteria as the version administered at a test center. The convenience of IELTS Online allows you to take the test from your home or any other private location with a reliable internet connection. The Speaking test is conducted with a certified IELTS examiner through an online video call.

The Pearson Test of English (Academic), more commonly known as PTE, is a meticulously designed examination that assesses the English language proficiency of individuals for whom English is not the primary language. The primary objective of this assessment is to gauge the fluency and comprehensive understanding of the English language in various individuals worldwide, especially in an academic context.


The PTE examination is not just confined to understanding or speaking English; it delves into all critical domains of the language. This includes Speaking, Writing, Reading, and Listening - the four fundamental pillars of any language. It offers a holistic approach to evaluating a candidate's command of the English language.


The format of the PTE is distinctive and comprehensive. The Speaking and Writing portions are grouped into one section specially designed to assess the individual's productive skills. Here, the test takers are evaluated on their ability to effectively articulate their thoughts in English and how accurately they can express themselves in written form.

Why take the PTE exam?

PTE Academic is a computer-based English language test specifically designed for non-native English speakers aiming to pursue their studies abroad. It evaluates the candidates' Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking proficiency. The test format incorporates questions that typically assess a combination of two skills simultaneously, such as reading and speaking or listening and reading.
