The world’s most popular high stakes English language test, accepted for study, work, and migration.
The main reason why I chose IELTS is because IELTS measures the ability of four skills to communicate in English. Another reason is because IELTS registration procedure is very quick and convenient. Candidates have many test dates to choose. I took IELTS and got score 6.5 without taking any training courses. Finally I was admitted by PhD program of University of Georgia. It provided me US$10,000 assistantship.

IELTS is a great exam because the preparation for IELTS is beneficial for your overseas studies. The exam contents cover different parts of western life such as culture and lifestyle. For example, you can know how to rent a flat, how to work with real estate agents, how to use library etc. In addition, IELTS is convenient for candidates in terms of test dates and test venues, especially candidates in Beijing – you can take the exam almost every weekend.

I heard IELTS can arrange a special test for physically-challenged people and I applied for a lip-reading listening test. The application procedure was easy to follow, and the test was arranged with great care. I got a satisfactory score and I am more confident than ever before about studying abroad.

I took IELTS and got an IELTS score 7.5. With my IELTS high score, I stood out from 24 candidates for a jointly education PhD program set by the US Fulbright Program. The design of IELTS test is customised and can reflect the genuine English capability of test takers. My English skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing had been greatly improved when I prepared for IELTS. I really appreciated IELTS which brought me great opportunities and personal developments.

Instructions before the IELTS written and speaking test were very clear and the people were nice and helpful. I found the written test pretty good. It was not too difficult, nor too simple. The results came quickly and I was accepted in the program and I am currently in the middle of my first year exams.

After graduating from university in Russia I applied to a large company in North America for a position that required English language proficiency. With my IELTS score I was able to prove my true-to-life ability to communicate in English for my first international employment opportunity. I have since worked in Bermuda and now live in Singapore, working for one of the most famous hotel brands in the world. With the invaluable experience that I have gained working overseas, IELTS has made a priceless contribution to progress my career and my life.
