The IELTS tests the student’ English proficiency in the four areas of English language; Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking with a band score of 0 to 9 for each module. The purpose of the IELTS TEST is to evaluate the English proficiency of non-native speakers of English who wish to study in the colleges & universities of English speaking countries.
IELTS is a six-week course at Rapid Academico. Classes are conducted two hours a day Monday through Friday. IELTS in Nepal is administered by British Council and even the test is scored here within the span of three weeks. Thus, Rapid Academico helps the students to prepare for the test, register for the test, and appear for the test. The part of the preparation of the test is vital among the three. This part involves the individualized mentoring by the test faculty, simulation tests and providing comment and feedback to students’ writing.
The Test Components
Listening: The test taker needs to answer approximately 40 questions in approximately 30 minutes. However, as separate time is not given to the students to answer the questions, they are required to write their answers in question paper itself. Thus, they are given ten minutes time to transfer the answers from the question paper to the answer sheet.
Reading: This section is perhaps the most difficult section in the IELTS. The section contains three passages, each of which is with approximately 12 – 14 questions. You are given 60 minutes time to answer the forty questions. The difficulty faced by the students is primarily because of variety of questions and the specific ways in which they are to be answered.
Writing: This section consists of two tasks. The Academic and General Training variants of IELTS differ slightly here. For academic training students, the first task is report-writing whereas for general training students, the first task is a letter writing task. In both cases, the second task is a general essay which is to be written basing on your knowledge and experience. However, the topics in academic module are likely to be academically oriented, but the general essays for general training module are usually of general interest.
Speaking: The speaking module of IELTS is a personal interview. A qualified and trained examiner will interview you for 11-15 minutes time and allocates some score basing on your performance. The first part of the speaking test is likely to be about topics familiar to you and the later questions are mostly analysis-based with a bent towards abstract topics.
