IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System, and it is a globally recognised English language test used to assess the proficiency of non-English speaking countries. This test was created by Cambridge University, which also creates ESOL, or English for speakers of other languages, around the world.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) was established in 1989 and is jointly managed and controlled by the British Council, Cambridge University, and IELTS Australia. TOEIC, PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL, and other similar tests are TOEIC, PTE (Pearson Test of English), and TOEFL.

Several native English nations, including Canada, Ireland, Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and New Zealand, accept IELTS to provide visas for educational and professional purposes.

IELTS also has a paper and pen version known as UKVI IELTS. The UK Council has approved this test for issuing visas and immigration to people applying from both inside and outside the UK. The general module of The International English Language Testing System is also applicable for New Zealand and Australia immigration, where primarily TOEFL and PTE are accepted. In Canada, IELTS is evaluated alongside the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program and the French Language Proficiency Test. IELTS is an old test that is only valid for two years. The test results are announced thirteen days after the test date.
