Hi,

I can pass the IELTS academic training on March 17, or wait until March 31 for the general training.
I would like to pass the test asap so I can concentrate on other things.
It seems the general training is required for immigration but it seems it is a minimum requirement as the academic training is stronger.

Does anyone here got a visa accepted with the academic IELTS?
BTW, I will apply as a Developper Programmer

Thanks

You can take the academic test, but it is more difficult, and you still have to achieve the same score. I wouldn't recommend it! The Listening and Spoken portions of the test are the same for both GT and A, but the Reading and Writing are different. These are the two sections that seem to give people the most trouble even in the GT test. Myself included!

Most people sit for the general exam but immigration accepts both academic and general test results.

You should however refer to the requirements of the assessing body for your occupation. Some occupations such as teachers, accountants, nurses, etc are required to sit the academic module, so you need to ensure that, whichever test you sit for, will be accepted by the assessing body for your occupation.
