This exam focuses on 4 aspects of English which are listening, speaking, reading, and writing where the listening and speaking part is kept common for the students giving general and academic exams but the pattern for both reading and writing parts is different for students in both categories.

Wherein Academic writing task 1 candidate usually asked to describe facts or figures presented in one or more graphs, charts or tables on a given topic and in task1 of General training category students are asked to write a personal response in the form of an informal or formal letter of at least 150 words.

Out of all 4 aspects, the most important and contributing part in testing the English proficiency is the IELTS writing test. And if we talk about the validation of scorecard then this test is the most popular and widely accepted across the globe.
