IELTS Academic Test
IELTS Academic measures English language proficiency needed for an academic, higher learning environment. The tasks and texts are accessible to anyone, irrespective of your subject focus.
The Academic format is, broadly speaking, for those who want to study or train in a university that teaches in English at undergraduate or postgraduate level, or institutions of higher and further education.
Many professions (e.g. medical, nursing, accounting, engineering) also require an Academic test result for registration purposes in many countries.
