IELTS International Language Testing System
What is IELTS ?
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help you work, study or migrate to a country where English is the native language. There are two types of IELTS: Academic and General Training. The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them.
The Speaking section, however, may be scheduled up to a week before or after the other tests. The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
IELTS Academic The IELTS Academic test is suitable for those wanting to study in an English-speaking environment or university (higher education). You can also take IELTS Academic for professional registration purposes.
The test measures if you are ready to begin studying in English. It features vocabulary that is familiar within an academic setting.
You can choose whether to take IELTS Academic on paper or on a computer. Test fee: 735 000MNT
IELTS General Training The IELTS General Training test is suitable for those applying to study below degree level. This includes an English-speaking school or college. It can also be taken for work experience or other employment training.
IELTS General Training is also required for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. The test features everyday English language skills that you will need in social and workplace environments. Test fee: 735 000MNT
