Similarities and Differences Between IELTS and UKVI IELTS

No such difference lies between the IELTS and IELTS test formats for UKVI. The test remains the same regarding content, pattern, difficulty level, and marking criteria for IELTS (Academic and General Training) and IELTS for UKVI (Academic and General Training).

The primary and only difference that makes both tests different is the change in the Test Report Forms, which declares the band score results. The test report will be different to show that you have taken the test at a certified IELTS UKVI location approved by the UK Home Office. The fundamental purpose of IELTS UKVI is to meet administrative requirements specified by the UK Home Office.

IELTS for UKVI (Academic and General Training) tests and IELTS Life Skills are taken at a UKVI-approved test center. British Council has many UKVI-approved venues across the world.

Which test format to take?

Before planning to study in the UK, double-check to confirm with your college, university, or institution about the kind of test format you should use for the English proficiency proof. You need to contact your respective authorities before booking the exam.

Suppose you are applying for a Tier 4 Student Visa at a higher education institution to enter directly into a graduate or postgraduate program at a university that is a Tier 4 Sponsor. In that case, you must be eligible based on the English language level set by the institution. All British universities and colleges acknowledge IELTS Academic results. You may not need to take an IELTS for the UKVI (Academic) test but can present the IELTS Academic result.
