Which one should I take?
IELTS General or Academic
Here at Aurora World Education, we value your educational goals and make it our priority to get you on the best course for you, with the right teacher and course delivery.
When it comes to the IELTS exam, there are 2 versions and we provide extensive educational guidance and a FREE consultation with a native English IELTS expert to help you decide which course you should take.
The timing and structure for both tests are the same; they are both divided into four parts, (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking). There aren’t any differences between the Listening and Speaking sections. The main differences between the IELTS Academic and the General Training exams are in the Reading and Writing components of the exam.
The Reading raw score/band score conversions are slightly different between General and Academic IELTS. For an idea of the conversions, check the official IELTS scoring page.
