Re: International English Language Test Pdf

As you want I am here providing you structure of the International English Language Test (IELTS test).

IELTS test structure:


The total test duration is around 2 hours and 55 minutes for Listening, Reading and Writing modules.
40 minutes, 30 minutes for which a recording is played centrally and additional 10 minutes for transferring answers onto the OMR answer sheet.

Reading: 60 minutes.

Writing: 60 minutes.

Speaking: 11–15 minutes.


It takes 40 minutes: 30 - for testing, plus 10 for transferring the answers to an answer sheet. Each section, which can be either a monologue or dialogue,
begins with a short introduction telling the candidates about the situation and the speakers.
Then they have some time to look through the questions. The first three sections have a break in the middle allowing candidates to look at the remaining questions. Each section is heard only once.
At the end of this section students are given 10 minutes to transfer their answers to an answer sheet.
Answers should be grammatically correct including capital letters for countries, streets, names and places.


In the academic module the reading test comprises three sections, with 3 texts normally followed by 13 or 14 questions for a total of 40 questions overall.

The General test also has 3 sections. However the texts are shorter, so there can be up to 5 texts to read.


In the Academic module, there are two tasks: in Task 1 candidates describe a diagram, graph, process or chart, and in Task 2 they respond to an argument.

In the General Training module, there are also two tasks: in Task 1 candidates write a letter or explain a situation, and in Task 2 they write an essay.


The speaking test contains three sections.
The first section takes the form of an interview during which candidates may be asked about their hobbies, interests, reasons for taking IELTS exam as well as other general topics such as clothing, free time, computers and the internet or family.

In the second section candidates are given a topic booklet and then have one minute to prepare after which they must speak about the given topic.

The third section involves a discussion between the examiner and the candidate, generally on questions relating to the theme which they have already spoken about in part 2. This last section is more abstract, and, by that, is usually considered the most difficult.
