IELTS puts people first
The IELTS test is committed to retaining the human touch, and to do everything possible to offer candidates top quality services to ensure they will have the most accurate bandscore and the most enjoyable examination experience. Here are some examples:

IELTS is accessible through 38 test venues in 32 cities, covering all the main large and medium-sized cities in China. Candidates can choose to sit IELTS from 48 available test dates throughout the year. Candidates are offered maximum convenience in terms of time and place. The waiting period between the day of test registration and the test date has been effectively reduced to 7 or 8 weeks, which effectively means all candidates can take IELTS.

IELTS is consistent in assessing candidates’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills comprehensively. The IELTS’ Speaking Test has always had the one-to-one and face-to-face test format between an examiner and a candidate to ensure efficiency of communication and authentic demonstration of the candidate’s English proficiency.

IELTS applies a series of measures to ensure consistency and accuracy, e.g., the introduction of double-marking, enquiry on results (EOR), and monitoring of examiners’ professional performance and assessment.

IELTS is also considerate to candidates with disability (e.g. visual and hearing disabilities) through provision of special test papers. As long as the candidates make such requests in advance, they can also sit IELTS.

The IELTS Question Paper Production Process
The question paper production cycle involves checking material produced for the IELTS test against quality standards. The objective of the process is to ensure that the material in the test covers the range called for by the specifications and is of proven quality.

The question paper production process is summarised in Figure 1 below. Initial stages of commissioning, preediting and editing involve the selection of appropriate test content that reflects the aims of the academic and general training modules. The material is then trialled at pretesting with representative groups of candidates to ensure that it is appropriately challenging and that it discriminates between more and less able candidates. Finally, material is introduced to the live test in stages through a process known as standards fixing so that it can be related to the established IELTS metric.
