Which version of IELTS should I choose?

If you are not sure whether you should sit the Academic format or General Training format of the IELTS test, there are a few basic guidelines to keep in mind.

Generally speaking, select the IELTS Academic option if:

  • you will be training at a university - undergraduate or postgraduate studies
  • you have been advised to study Academic IELTS

You should select the IELTS General Training format if:

  • you are immigrating to an English-speaking country
  • you are going to an English-speaking country to complete Secondary School training
  • you will be doing non-academic work experience or training programs
  • you have been advised to study General Training IELTS
