IELTS and Cambridge Courses at GV Perth – some useful information

Many students come to Global Village Perth Beach to take the Cambridge  Exam Preparation courses because of its excellent reputation overseas.

Students are always asking me which exam course they should take. IELTS or Cambridge Mainsuite exams; (KET, PET, FCE, CAE AND CPE).

In fact both are Cambridge developed exams although IELTS was developed jointly with the British Council and IDP.

The IELTS exam awards a grade according to your level, whereas Cambridge Mainsuite have exams at each level and award a certificate if you pass.

The IELTS grade is only valid for two years whereas the Mainsuite exams have no expiry date.

IELTS is used as for immigration purposes and for entrance to higher education such as TAFE colleges and Universities in Australia and overseas. Mainsuite exams are widely used for employment overseas and also for college and university entrance.

The IELTS exam consists of 4 papers; listening, speaking, reading and writing. For immigration the reading and writing has a general English focus. For higher education students take an academic focused reading and writing exam.

  Mainsuite exams have 5 papers; listening, speaking, reading, writing and use of English. (PET only has four papers as Listening, speaking and reading/writing).

At GV Perth, we run IELTS continually both in the daytime and the evening. Students may join at any week. There is a pre-test for entry and students are expected to be at a minimum 4.5 IELTS equivalent level. Exams are held every month in all the major cities. Perth is the nearest centre for GV Perth Beach students.

We offer Cambridge PET, FCE and CAE exams at the moment but will soon be running a CPE course as well.  These are run four times a year in line with the exams which are held simultaneously around the world in March, June, September  and December. 

Which exam is best for you?  If you want to enter a TAFE college course in Australia, then IELTS is the best option. If you wish to enter an undergraduate course at university, you can consider IELTS or CAE.

If you have any questions about our academic courses, please speak to Neil, Stephanie, Ursula or Stuart.
