Take IELTS Common FAQs
Is there a difference if I take the IELTS test in British Council or IDP?
There isn’t any difference because both the British Council and the IDP employ the identical criteria and guidelines, as a result, there is no difference between the IELTS Tests. Both parties had agreed on how the candidate would be evaluated. The only distinction is the location.
Which one is better: IELTS Academic or General?
There is no better alternative among the two, but each module serves a certain purpose. IELTS Academic is designed for people who are seeking specialised types of work related to education or scholarships, so the writing and reading tasks will be more difficult. When it comes to the writing and reading duties, the General module is substantially easier. The Academic, on the other hand, has the advantage of being able to operate on both sides.
Do Academic IELTS tests give the benefits of General IELTS?
Yes, but you'll need more academic skills and an advanced command of the English language to achieve the desired result.
Do you recommend a paper based test or computer based test?
Both test formats are recommended by Real Academy, but we believe that computer-based testing is more convenient because the world moves toward technology. Besides, computer-based test results are available in 3 to 5 days. Additionally, you can complete all test sections in one day. Because of the high number of available seats, you will feel more relaxed when taking the computer delivered IELTS. We now have a test venue for computer delivered IELTS in the 5th settlement with our IELTS Test IDP partner.
Which is faster in results delivery: IELTS paper based test or IELTS computer based test?
When it comes to results, IELTS computer based is actually the fastest because the results are projected to arrive in 3 to 5 days, and you will be notified once the results are received at the location where you took the exam.
Is it true that computer-based testing costs more than paper-based testing?
No, the prices for both exams are the same.
Does the IELTS computer based test require a certain level of computer skills?
You don't have to worry about it. It simply requires standard computer abilities, and the IDP administrators will provide the sufficient instructions on how to use the system and navigate inside it, as well as invigilators to assist you if you have any questions about the exam.
How can I book an IELTS computer based test?
You will first visit https://my.ieltsessentials.com , select a location and time, fill in all of your information, and then pay online or offline, keeping in mind that you must pay within 48 hours from the registration date.
What will happen if I face any technical issues inside the IELTS Computer based test?
You will have the option of requesting a retake for this IELTS Test at the next available time, and it will be treated as if it is your first time.
Is the IELTS Certificate recognised in all of the places I'm applying?
Yes, it is correct. Your IELTS score certificate is accredited and valid for two years from the date you took it, and it can be used for anything that requires an IELTS score.
How do I get my IELTS Test results?
You will be notified via email once the results are released from the test venue where you took the exam.
What should I do to prepare for the IELTS Exam?
You must prepare for the IELTS test in order to ensure the IELTS score you desire as well as being adaptable to the test environment, which takes 3 hours without speaking, so you must be prepared and patient until the exam is completed. You can take a lot of mock exams before taking your IELTS test to practise both language and time management.
Is it enough to just practise to get the required IELTS score?
It depends on your language level; some people only need tips and tricks, others only need practise, and still others need to be fully prepared for the IELTS test from the beginning, so it's not just a module you can follow, but we do recommend getting advice on where to begin from an IELTS expert to ensure you're on the right track.
What is the primary source of IELTS information?
The IELTS test is only available in two institutions. The British Council and the IDP are the primary resources for all IELTS related matters. Real Academy is an IDP partner and offers a computer-delivered IELTS test.
