FORMAT

While there is no change in the content, format or level of difficulty and scoring, IELTS for UKVI simply follows certain extra security protocols to ensure the authenticity of the test taker. Also, your Test Report Form (TRF) may look slightly different from the regular IELTS one.

Candidates applying to the Tier 4 Student visa must meet their language requirement set by their university of college.
