The General Training test looks at your English-language capabilities in a work or social environment. If you plan to study in secondary education, enroll in vocational training, move abroad for work or migrate to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK or the USA, you might need to take an IELTS General Training.

The test assesses your English-language proficiency across four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. While the Listening and Speaking part of the IELTS General Training are the same as the IELTS Academic, the Reading and Writing parts differ.


How much does the General Training test cost?

The General Training test costs approx $ 205 USD for the paper-based test and $ 230 USD for the computer-delivered test. Check the IELTS booking system for accurate prices.
