IELTS - about the test in a few words

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test for those who would like to study or work in an English-speaking environment.

There are two modules of IELTS:

•    IELTS Academic (for those planning to study);
•    IELTS General Training (for those wishing to gain work experience in an English speaking country).

IELTS test is honored by more than 8,000 institutions around the world.
It should be highlighted that many prestigious universities and colleges in Poland consider IELTS to be a basis for dismissal from internal examinations and tests in English. IELTS certificate is also treated as the basis of awarding credits in international student programs such as Erasmus +.

The structure of IELTS

IELTS consists of four parts and includes the following modules:

  • Listening comprehension - this part lasts 40 minutes; 30 minutes is spent on answering questions and the remaining time is meant to be spent on transferring answers to the answer sheet. The listening part consists of 40 questions in total.
  • Reading comprehension - the candidate is given 40 questions that need to be answered. In this module the candidate has 60 minutes to complete all tasks.
  • Writing – this part consists of two tasks which aim to assess one's English writing skills. This section of the exam lasts 60 minutes.
  • Speaking - the final part of the IELTS exam consists of three parts. The first part takes about 4-5 minutes. The examiner asks questions about student's private life - place of residence, family life, interests, occupation, studies, plans for the future etc. Questions asked in this part are not too personal since their aim is to check how the candidate’s command of  informal language. The second part takes about 3 - 4 minutes. The student speaks for about 2 minutes on a given topic. It is allowed to make notes before answering the question. Once the candidate has finished his speech, the examiner asks one or two questions related to the discussed topic.The third part is about 3-4 minutes long. In this part the candidate answers questions that are more abstract. The language is therefore expected to be more formal.

Speaking test takes place in the form of a 1: 1 meeting. In addition, the conversation is recorded.

During this time, all aspects of the candidate’s proficiency in English are thoroughly analyzed. It should be pointed out that the speaking test may take place within 7 days before or after the written part. Nevertheless, the speaking module is often taken on the same day or in the week preceding the written part.

Both listening and speaking modules are the same for all candidates (IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training). Differences are visible in the reading and writing parts of the test.

How long is IELTS valid?

IELTS results are usually valid for 2 years. Most institutions do not honour results older than 24 months. However, there are exceptions, so it is always worth checking how long the institution we are interested in will honour the certificate.

IELTS results with reference to the CEFR scale (Common European Framework of Reference).

IELTS is recognized by the Council of Europe. The test score is a component of grades obtained on the particular parts. The employed scale ranges from 1 to 9 points, with 1 being the lowest and 9 the highest score.

Skala CEFR A2 B1 B2 C1 C2
Skala wyników IELTS 2.5-3.5 4.0-5.0 5.5-6.5 7.0-8.0 8.5-9.0

On our IELTS preparation courses all our students will feel confident that in addition to familiarizing themselves with the structure of the IELTS exam they expand their vocabulary, work with a variety of materials - newspaper articles, reviews, novels and short stories, authentic recordings and visual material.
