How does IELTS 360⁰ work?
IELTS 360⁰ has been developed by some of the world’s leading language assessment experts and will test the full range of English skills needed for success in your new job or study placement abroad. There are four modules, to the IELTS 360⁰ test: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. While all students take the same Listening and Speaking tests, they sit different Reading and Writing tests, depending on whether they have selected the Academic Stream or the General Training Stream. Students must sit in all four modules. The four modules will be taken in the order shown to your right.
The Four 360⁰ Modules:
- ELTS 360⁰ Listening Module lasts for about 30 minutes. It consists of four sections, played on audio, in order of increasing difficulty. Each section might be a dialogue or a monologue. The test is played once only, and the questions for each section must be answered while listening, although time is given for students to check their answers.
- IELTS 360⁰ Reading Module lasts for 60 minutes. Students are given an Academic Reading test or a General Training Reading test. Both tests consist of three sections, and in both tests, the sections are in order of increasing difficulty.
- IELTS 360⁰ Writing Module also lasts for 60 minutes. Again, students take either an Academic Module or a General Training Module. Students must perform two writing tasks, which require different styles of writing. There is no choice of question topics.
- IELTS 360⁰ Speaking Module consists of a one-to-one interview with a specially trained examiner. The interview is recorded, and it will last for approximately 11-14 minutes. It has three separate parts:
- An introduction and interview
- An individual long turn where the candidate speaks for one or two minutes on a particular topic
- A two-way discussion thematically linked to the individual long turn.
