The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an English test required for the admissions procedure to more or less all of English universities. Even in France, certain establishments have begun to request this test as a requirement for admission onto their programmes that are partially taught in English. This is certainly the case at certain business schools or even at Science Po.
This test is widely renowned and recognised, allowing universities to have a precise idea of your level of English, and to ensure that you have the required level to undertake and succeed in your higher studies. The IELTS exam takes place over one or two days and you will be tested on all aspects of the language: writing and speaking as well as written and oral comprehension. The test is split into four sections: Writing, Speaking, Reading & Listening.
Upon completion of the test, you will obtain four results between 0 and 9 and a general average. Although the requirements may vary from one university to another, most request an average of 6,5 with no result being lower than 6,0.
To stack the odds in your favour, it is best to prepare for this test seriously. Remember from the outset that a majority of students will have to retake the test as few attain the required marks on their first attempt. It is therefore best to begin your preparation as early as possible and to not wait until the last minute before sitting the exam (with a risk of having to cancel your plans if your results are not as expected).
In order to help you prepare for the exam in the best way possible, Study Experience has paired up with Anglo-Link, an online platform for learning and practice. Unlike other options that exist, we particularly like the fact that students control the platform and have the possibility to take online lessons (via a video-conference). You are also able to ask questions at any time and a teacher will take the time to reply.
When you sit a mock exam, your writing will be corrected by a teacher (not a robot), providing you with advice on how to improve your score. With regards to the speaking, this is also done with a teacher, allowing you to place yourself in similar conditions to those on the day of the exam.
The Anglo-Link platform allows you to access thorough training which is completely personalised in accordance with your current level and your final goal. In this way, you are able to create a ‘study plan’ adapted to your current level. Thus, allowing you to achieve your objectives within the given deadlines and taking into account your personal preferences as well as your weaknesses.
Your progress is measured in real time and everything is put into place in order to maintain motivation until you reach your end goals. The Anglo-Link team is highly responsive, with teachers available to respond to your questions and to support you step-by-step. It is in fact, this human factor that differentiates Anglo-Link from any other online platform and allows you to optimise your chances of succeeding.
