What is IELTS General Test?
The IELTS General test measures a candidate’s language proficiency in a work environment. It evaluates a non-native speaker’s ability to meaningfully communicate in a general, work-driven atmosphere. People who aspire to give this test are those preferring to work or migrate to other English speaking countries. This test is also applicable to students wanting to go for education below degree level.
The IELTS General test is not as difficult as the Academic test. However, preparation is a must to obtain a band score beyond 7. While an overall band score of 6.5 is considered acceptable across various organisations, having a score above 7 is a sign of being competent in language and has its own advantage.
