IELTS General Training – prove you have practical, everyday English language skills
IELTS General Training is an English language proficiency in a practical, everyday context. The tasks and tests reflect both workplace and social situations.
Take the IELTS General Training test if you would like to:
- train or study at below degree level
- work or undertake work related training in an English speaking country
- emigrate to an English speaking country
- get a better job in your own country.
You can choose between IELTS on paper or IELTS on computer for IELTS General Training. Both test formats of this English proficiency exam will take place at one of our official test centres.
If you need a UK student visa or a visa to work in the UK, then in some cases you may need to take IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration (IELTS for UKVI).
What does the fee include? Our IELTS General Training exam fee in Nepal includes exclusive IELTS preparation materials, free IELTS practice tests and much more.
Duration: 2 hours and 45 minutes.
IELTS General Training format: There are four sections to the test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. When you book your IELTS General Training test with the British Council, the test will take place in an official British Council IELTS test centre, whether you choose paper-based or computer-delivered.
Your IELTS Speaking test may be offered on the same day as the other sections of the test, or up to a week before or after. You will receive notification in advance if your Speaking test is on a different day to your written test day.
Some of our IELTS test centres in Nepal are delivering the IELTS Speaking test via video calls. This means greater flexibility in delivering IELTS Speaking tests, along with increased availability.
You will take the Video-call Speaking test at an official IELTS test centre in Nepal with the same high standard of identity verification. The test will be exactly the same as the in-person Speaking test in terms of content, scoring, timing, question format and security arrangements.
Delivered by an IELTS Speaking Examiner, the Video-call Speaking test will maintain the face-to-face features of the in-person Speaking test.
For more information, please contact your local test centre from the 'contact us' section.
