IELTS can be categorized into IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training.
The IELTS Academic module is suitable for individuals who plan to pursue higher education at universities or institutions where English is the primary language of instruction. It assesses the test-takers ability to handle academic materials and tasks.
The IELTS General Training module is intended for individuals who seek work experience, training programs, or migration to English-speaking countries. It evaluates practical, everyday English language skills needed for social and workplace contexts.
