The IELTS or the International English Language Testing System is among the most popular English proficiency tests accepted by universities around the world. A large number of students in India appear for this test each year to qualify for studying their preferred degree abroad. But this year, due to the lockdown and travel restrictions in place due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, students have been unable to reach the test centres to appear for their exams. As a solution to this, the British Council has launched the IELTS Indicator test which is an online IELTS test.

What is the IELTS Indicator?
The IELTS indicator is a temporary measure introduced by the British Council with the aim to allow students to test their English language skills without having to visit the IELTS test centre. The test will, similar to the IELTS, examine your writing, speaking, reading and listening skills in English, and provide an indicative score within a week of taking the exam, which can be used for gaining admission to universities abroad. Since not all universities are accepting the IELTS Indicator scores for admissions presently, students are advised to check in advance whether the university is accepting indicative scores or not.
How to Appear for the Test?
You need to register for the test by visiting the website of the British Council by choosing a date and time and paying a fee of 149 ID. The instructions and login details for taking the test will be sent to your registered email id, and you have to follow the instruction to be able to appear for the test. The test can only be taken on a laptop or computer, and it is advisable to ensure that you have a good internet connection while taking the test.
