Now the IELTS test can be divided into two types, viz. Academic and General. They are essentially the same IELTS exams, just the purpose of taking the exam and some changes to the syllabus. When the academic IELTS is taken for the purpose of finishing higher studies at some good university abroad, the general IELTS is generally taken by people who want to go abroad to finish their secondary education, get work experience or migrate temporarily. 9811991588
