If you have taken IELTS tests multiple times, the best score out of all these will be considered. It is up to you to choose which one should be declared to get the best score for PR/Express Entry point calculations.

This section will test your ability to strike a conversation with a stranger smoothly in English. Make sure that you answer these questions spontaneously.
