This 9-band system measures scores in a consistent manner – wherever the test centre is located and whenever the test is taken. It is internationally recognized and understood.

 IELTS Syllabus :

The IELTS Exam consists of Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking parts.

According to the 2019 test pattern, the Listening, Reading and Writing tests are conducted on the same day while students might have to take the speaking module on the same day itself or within seven days prior to the Listening, Reading and Writing test. Tests need to be taken on the given days failing to do so have undesired consequences.
