What is IELTS?


IELTS is a test developed by the world’s leading experts in language assessment on four key English language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. It is designed to assess the language ability of people who aim to study, work, immigrate and integrate an English-speaking environment.

IELTS is Globally Recognised


IELTS – The International English Language Testing System is: The world’s most popular English proficiency test, with 3.5 million IELTS tests taken in 2018; Recognized by over 10,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies; Administered in over 1600 test locations in over 140 countries. Test availability increased last year with the global roll-out of IELTS on Computer.

IELTS is Accepted and Trusted in Canada


IELTS is the preferred high stakes English language test in Canada. Trusted by over 350 Canadian organizations, it was the first test to be recognized by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Immigration Quebec as proof of English language proficiency for Express Entry (Skilled Immigrants), Quebec-selected skilled workers, Provincial Nominee, etc.
In May 2014, the IRCC announced it was renewing its trust in IELTS for another five years. With IELTS, you can go anywhere in Canada, and beyond.

IELTS Academic: If you want to study at university, at an undergraduate or postgraduate level, or join a professional association where English is a prerequisite.

IELTS General: If you want to apply for Express Entry or any other immigration program in order to establish anywhere in Canada. Read more about Immigration To Canada.

Everything about the test was smooth and conducted properly. Had no issues whatsoever. I had an EOR which was handled smoothly as well. I'm more than happy to recommend your centre to anyone. Appreciate all the efforts you take to conduct the tests in the best possible manner during these times."

Generally, the IELTS testing site was clean. In fact, I even saw your receptionist disinfecting the washroom key and he was encouraging test takers to sanitize their hands before they register. Social distancing was well implemented too. I couldn’t think of any areas to improve because my expectations were met. I guess, just keep up the good work."

It was great, the staff are so kind and organized. They obeyed the protocol from BC Health. They always disinfect, before and after we used the area. We were a bit delayed, but it was fine."
