Academic or General?

The Academic Module is used to assess a candidate’s readiness to study in post-secondary institutions where English is the medium of instruction. Professional Registration Organizations often request the IELTS Academic Module.

The General Module is used to assess the general proficiency of candidates wishing to complete secondary school, a training program or work experience in an English-speaking environment. The General Module is also used to assess language proficiency for immigration to Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

When is doubt, it is the candidates’ responsibility to contact their Recognizing Organization to determine which module is required.
