Other important information

IELTS Express will benefit people taking both Academic and General Training modules of the IELTS test. General Training candidates will find the Academic Writing Module extremely useful, as Task 2 is similar in both modules of the test. We will send students taking the General Training supplementary learning materials for Task 1. The Academic and General Training Reading modules are different, so General Training candidates might like to consider other forms of reading practice.
