A Bang of IELTS for UKVI

Here are all the details about how to take the IELTS approved by UK Visa and Immigration:

IELTS is an English proficiency language test to be applied by anyone who desires to pursue a career abroad, academically or professionally. The modules of IELTS includes IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training.
However, British authorities have recently changed the policy, which now requires IELTS testing for purposes of UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI), known as IELTS for UKVI. IELTS for UKVI majorly applies to everyone from a non-English speaking country. Henceforth, the IELTS for UKVI score will be accepted by universities, colleges, and professional bodies instead of the regular IELTS score.

Although IELTS for UKVI follows no changes in content, format, or levels of difficulty or scoring, yet it adheres to the security protocol to ensure the authenticity of the test taker. Pertaining to that, the Test Report Form (TRF) will appear differently from the regular IELTS version.
