What is an IELTS for UKVI test?
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures English language ability and uses a nine-band scale from low (band score 1) to high (band score 9).
There are a number of different IELTS tests available. Students wishing to use an IELTS test to demonstrate their English language ability need to use the IELTS Academic test. However, international students on some university courses will require a UK government-approved Secure English Language Test (SELT), and the IELTS for UKVI test is recognised as a SELT.
