Are you planning to study or train abroad? Are you applying to an institution and need to prove your level of English? Do you need to raise your standard in English? Then we can help you with an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam.
WHERE IS IELTS RECOGNISED?
IELTS is accepted by most UK, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand academic institutions. In the United States it is increasingly gaining recognition as an alternative to TOEFL (Teaching of English as a Foreign Language).
WHAT TYPE OF IELTS SHOULD YOU TAKE?
You can take either the Academic or General Training modules. Choose the Academic module if you are planning to undertake academic study in a higher education institution.If you are planning to undertake non-academic training or apply for immigration to Australia, Canada or New Zealand, we recommend you take the General Training module.
You will be tested in listening, reading, writing and speaking whichever module you decide to take. For further information contact our examination officer.
HOW MUCH WILL IELTS COST?
The registration fee for the exam is Tk.12,800/- for either the General Training or Academic modules. You can register for IELTS at any of our offices in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet or Service1 booth at selected Standard Chartered Bank.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE TEST BE?
Although test dates vary, we run a regular service so you can take your test throughout the year. Find out when you can take your test.
Usually, tests are taken at our centres in Dhaka, Chittagong, Rajshahi, and Sylhet. Sometimes, you may need to take the test elsewhere - we will let you know one week before the test if this happens.
Candidates need to report at their respective venue by 11:30 am. You will take the Writing, Reading and Listening papers together. The writing and reading papers last for 60 minutes and the listening paper for approx 40 minutes.
The Speaking test is taken separately, either on the same day or on a different day, and lasts for about 15 minutes. You will receive an SMS confirmation from British Council 3 to 4 days before the test.
WHEN AND HOW WILL YOU RECEIVE YOUR RESULTS?
Results arepublished on the 12th day after the test. You can view your results on our website.
Results will be returned to you as a Test Report Form. There is no pass or fail mark. Scores are given on a band scale of one to nine (with one being a non-user and nine being an expert user of the English language).
WHAT SUPPORT WILL YOU RECEIVE FROM BRITISH COUNCIL?
We offer many options for you to prepare for the test effectively. When you register for the test you can immediately get access to our online preparation course ROAD TO IELTS. You can also register for the One-day Workshop where a Cambridge trained Examiner will cover exam techniques, format, tips and practice tests.
