What is IELTS and its purpose?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help you work, study or migrate to a country where English is the native language. This includes countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and USA.

What qualifications do I need for IELTS?

The only eligibility for the IELTS exam in Ghana and across the globe is that a candidate needs to be at least 16 years.

Anybody aged 16 or above can take this examination, irrespective of their gender, nationality, or background.

Exceptions are only made when a school needs the IELTS scores for admission purposes.

Is IELTS a difficult exam?

Many people find this test section one of the hardest if they haven’t prepared ahead of time using test prep tools, or by listening to English music or by watching English television shows. This section of the exam requires you to complete two writing tasks.

Do I need a passport to write IELTS?

Test Takers taking the test outside their own country must use a passport. Make sure to inform the test centre of any changes to your identity document before the test date.

Can I fail in IELTS?

There is no pass or fail in IELTS. You are graded on your performance in the test, using scores from 1-9 for each part of the test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. Your results from the four parts then produce an overall score.

What is the hardest part in IELTS?

According to several surveys on IELTS modules, the Writing module is the toughest among the four.

The writing module is considered as the most difficult module of any exam. It may be in major English proficiency tests like IELTS or in school-tests.

Can I study IELTS on my own?

Yes, you can pass the IELTS exam without coaching if you practice all the sections consistently.
