Which IELTS test - General or Academic?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I've just downloaded the application form for the IELTS test, but I don't know whether to select Academic or General. I assume General, but is this correct?

 

Thanks!

It will depend on what type of visa you are after and your what occupation you are looking at.

We are going for a GSM visa as a Software Engineer. We'd like to get more points by scoring Superior on the IELTS test.

If your going along the ACS route then they dont require you pass IELTS (unlike the testing body for Accountants, among others), so if its just to get extra points then its the General Test you need to sit.

This thread is 4 years old. I will close it as there is much more current information available in recent threads.
