An applicant’s IELTS result is valid for utmost two years. If an applicant’s report expires this period, he is expected to be necessary to appear for the test again. There are certain professions, like Engineers and Teachers in Australia that need specific (prescribed) IELTS scores.
Therefore, so as to be entitled to apply for any of these professions, a candidate have to get the prearranged scores. for instance, Engineers must score least six points in each of the IELTS testing modules in General Training Test, at the same time as Teachers must make at least seven points in all of the IELTS testing modules in Academic Training Test.
