Why take a Practice Test?

SLC works with hundreds of IELTS candidates every year, preparing them to achieve their best score in the international IELTS Test. We know how important it is for you to know your current level, so you can:

  • See where your strengths and weaknesses are.
  • Create a study plan so you can achieve the score you need.
  • Accurately predict the score you will achieve in an official Test

Academic IELTS

The SLC IELTS Practice Tests are for the Academic version of the IELTS Tests. You need this if you want to study in an English-speaking university, or if you want to meet the requirements set by professional bodies such as the General Medical Council (GMC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in the UK.
