If you wish to study abroad at a university or a college as an undergraduate or postgraduate student, you can take up the IELTS Academic test. This test can also help if you want to enter or register in a professional institution.
On the other hand, you can choose the IELTS General Training test if you wish to migrate to an English-speaking country.
The organisation where you plan to work or study sets the requirements. So, before you register for your test, it’s good to check which one is right for you.
If you plan to migrate to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK or the USA, taking an IELTS General Training test makes sense. Or if you plan on studying in secondary education, or enrolling in vocational training, this might still be the right choice.
But if you plan to study in higher education or want professional registration in an English-speaking country, you might need to take an IELTS Academic test.
