Note:

The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) has two types of exams: Academic and General Training. IELTS Academic can be taken on paper or on a computer at a test center or online from a private location with a stable internet connection. IELTS General Training can only be taken on paper or on a computer at a test center.

 

Both exam types have the same Listening and Speaking tests, but different Reading and Writing tests. Make sure you prepare for the correct test type.

 

All IELTS exams have the Listening, Reading, and Writing sections completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them. However, the Speaking test may be scheduled up to a week before or after the other tests. If you booked the IELTS Online exam, your Speaking test will usually take place before your other tests.

Scoring

TOEFL:

 

You’ll receive four scaled section scores and a total score.

 

Each section has a score range of 0–30.

These are added together for a total score of 0–120.

Each skill has four or five proficiency levels, so where your score falls within that range tells you your proficiency for that skill.

IELTS:

 

IELTS results are reported on a 9-band scale. They are designed to be simple and easy to understand.

 

They are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest).

 

All formats of IELTS use the same scoring system.
