What is the IELTS for UK Immigration and Visas (UKVI)?
If you are looking to work or study in the UK, you may need to apply for a UK visa and show that you have met the required level of English by taking a Home Office approved Secure English Language Test (SELT), such as IELTS for UKVI (Academic and General Education) or IELTS Life Skills.
What is the difference in exam format between IELTS and IELTS for UKVI?
IELTS and IELTS for UKVI are the same in terms of format, content, scoring, and difficulty level. However, the test report form containing your results is slightly different to show that you have taken the test at an official IELTS location for UKVI, which is approved by the UK Home Office.
