Requirement sa mga bansang Canada, Australia, New Zealand at Ireland ang English Test sa mga nagbabalak magmigrate sa mga bansang ito. May IELTS at may TOFEL ba yong isa kung di ako nagkakamali.

Interpretation of results

Each Band corresponds to a descriptive statement giving a summary of the English competence of a candidate classified at that level. Overall Band Scores can be reported in either whole or half Bands.
The nine bands and their descriptive statements are as follows:
9 Expert User Has fully operational command of the language: appropriate, accurate and fluent with complete understanding.
8 Very Good User Has fully operational command of the language with only occasional unsystematic inaccuracies and inappropriacies. Misunderstandings may occur in unfamiliar situations. Handles complex detailed argumentation well.
7 Good User Has operational command of the language, though with occasional inaccuracies, inappropriacies and misunderstandings in some situations. Generally handles complex language well and understands detailed reasoning.
6 Competent UserHas generally effective command of the language despite some inaccuracies, inappropriacies and misunderstandings. Can use and understand fairly complex language, particularly in familiar situations.
5 Modest User Has partial command of the language, coping with overall meaning in most situations, though is likely to make many mistakes. Should be able to handle basic communication in own field.
4 Limited User Basic competence is limited to familiar situations. Has frequent problems in understanding and expression. Is not able to use complex language.
3 Extremely Limited User Conveys and understands only general meaning in very familiar situations. Frequent breakdowns in communication occur.
2 Intermittent User No real communication is possible except for the most basic information using isolated words or short formulae in familiar situations and to meet immediate needs. Has great difficulty understanding spoken and written English.
1 Non User Essentially has no ability to use the language beyond possibly a few isolated words.

Tulad ng ibang test pag nakakauha ka ng mas mataas mas maganda lalo na pag Canada ang target mo kasi may karagdagang points sa language category sa point system nila. Pwede kang magclaim ng 4 points (high) sa Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking proficiency kung makakakuha ka ng band 7-9 sa nabanggit na category. Samantalang 2 points (moderate) kung band 5-6.9 band ang makuha mo sa IELTS.
Para sa karagdagang inpormasyon sa IELTS kahit nasaaang bansa kayo pasyalan ninyo ang website nila

kahit sa USA, requirement na din nila ngayon ang IELTS. Unlike before na TOEFL, TSE (Test of Spoken English) or TWE (Test of Written ENGLISH). Ang kagandahan sa IELTS, all in one na yan sya na test. Sa academic band, dapat 7 ang makukuha mong score.
