IELTS is organized by the British Council and the University of Cambridge and was created to meet the standards of British Educational Institutions and English-speaking Educational Institutions internationally.
The IELTS score scale is from 1 to 9. The students are rated in each of the individual modules (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking), which are offset to a General Average.
The IELTS examinations in Athens and Thessaloniki are held every month throughout the year. Results are issued 13 days after the test.
