The IELTS 2019 selection procedure depends largely on the version of the test one is opting for.

The version of IELTS 2019 can be selected by candidates depending on the institution or organisation they wish to get admission. As no specific IELTS eligibility criteria are prescribed by the IELTS conducting bodies, hence there is no specific IELTS selection procedure 2019 for any college/ university. However, as the selection procedure of IELTS 2019 varies between organisations, candidates need to be thorough with the admission requirements of the respective institute at the time of filling up of the IELTS application form. While every organisation sets its own entry requirements pertaining to the IELTS 2019 selection procedure, in some cases both versions of IELTS may be accepted as well.

Further, the IELTS score also varies according to countries, universities and the programme the student is applying to. To cite an example, most of the business schools in the USA accept an IELTS score band of above 7 while those in Oceania or Asia accept IELTS score above 5.5 in the IELTS selection procedure 2019.

Apurv 15th Oct, 2019

Hello Jyotsna, There is nothing like syllabus for IELTS exam. It is just a proficiency test for english language. There are 4 sections in the test: Reading, writing, speaking and listening. For the reading section, there would be an unseen passage and some questions related to that, you would need to find answers from the passage. for the listening section, you would have to answer the question based on the sound clip you hear. For the writing section, you would be needed to write two essays on the topic given. As for the speaking test, you would have to talk face to face with the instructor for about 12-15 minutes in english. I have given computer delivered IELTS myself and scored 7.0 in first attempt. I didn't do any coaching or read anything. Although i am going to give you official link for the practice tests:
