What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a standardized test that measures the English language proficiency of people who want to study or work in environments where English is the medium of communication.  It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment, and was established in 1989.  The 9 band scale identifies the proficiency level, from non-users (band score 1) through to expert users (band score 9).
