IELTS is a high-stakes language testing system that is used to assess the proficiency of non-native English speakers. It is important for organizations to have confidence that they are treating all test takers fairly and setting their candidates up for success. To this end, equivalences have been established between Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and the results of language tests from designated evaluation organizations. If you have taken a different English test or qualification, such as GCSE, this table shows the equivalent scores or grades you need to match your course's IELTS score.
Comparing test scores can be difficult, but the following tables are based on extensive research and can help you make an informed decision.
