The International English Language Testing System, commonly known as IELTS, is a widely accepted English proficiency test essential for candidates from a non-English speaking country to study, settle, or work abroad.

So, Abroad aspirants have to secure a good score in IELTS to make their dreams come true. With a holistic approach and expert steering, potential students can easily crack the exam. 

IELTS slot booking is also as crucial as preparing for the exam. It involves multiple processes. 

Before delving deeply into the slot booking process, we must learn about other details of the IELTS exam.

Who Can Apply for IELTS?

First of all, it is necessary to know who is eligible for an IELTS exam. Here are the details.

  • Applicants must be 16 years or older.
  • They must hold a valid passport.
  • There are no other limitations based on the economic situation, nationality, or background.

Types of IELTS

While registering for the IELTS exam, you have to choose which type of IELTS exam you are going to take. Hence, you must be aware of the different types of IELTS exams and their purposes. Have a look at the different types of IELTS exams available for you.

Based on the purpose, there are two types of IELTS exams: IELTS Academic and IELTS General.

1. IELTS Academic Test:

If you are planning to study abroad, you must take the IELTS academic test. It aims to assess a candidate’s English skill level in effectively taking part in an academic program abroad, especially in an English-speaking country.

2. IELTS General Test

The IELTS general test is mostly taken by candidates who want to migrate to other countries, mostly to work and settle there. The speaking and listening tests are common for both academic and general tests, whereas reading and writing tests differ. 

Based on the mode of examination, there are two types of IELTS exams: Computer-based IELTS and Paper-based IELTS.

3. Computer-based IELTS

Candidates will take the listening, reading, and writing sections on a computer, and speaking sessions will be conducted face-to-face with an examiner. The test results will be available within 3-5 days after the test. Moreover, the computer-based test is available mostly 3 times a day and 7 days a week.

4. Paper-based IELTS:

In paper-based IELTS, the candidates will take the listening, reading, and writing sessions on a paper and the speaking will be conducted face-to-face with an examiner (similar to that of the computer-based test).
