On the basis of IDP-IA certificate and available capacities, Islamic Azad University
(IAU) runs the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination
in Islamic Republic of Iran.
The first IELTS Academic examination in this centre was successfully run on 18th
of December and we are planning to run three exams a month including 1200 seats
English Language Testing System (IELTS)
examination can be taken in over
100 different countries in the world. It is primarily designed to assess the readiness
of candidates to study or train in further or higher education courses held in English
at college or university.
The examination takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete, and consists of four Sub-tests
in the skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking.
There are two IELTS test modules available:
1. The Academic Module
2. General Training Module
The results of the Academic Module
may be used to determine a candidate's
suitability for studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
The General Training Module
is suitable for candidates wishing
to continue their studies at diploma level only. The General Training Module is
also used for immigration purposes to Australia or New Zealand, and for students
who wish to complete their secondary education in an English-speaking country.
The General Training Reading and Writing Sub-tests are less demanding than the corresponding
Academic Module Sub-tests, but the Listening and Speaking Sub-tests are the same
for both modules.
It does not matter what subject you are going to study in the future - or have studied
in the past - all students taking the desired module do the same test. You will
not be tested on your specific knowledge of a subject; only your English language
skills are assessed.
You may write on the question papers, but you may not take the question papers from
the examination room. All your answers must be written on the Answer Sheet provided.
