  What’s the difference between General and Academic module?

The reading and writing tasks are different as they are designed to examine different types of English language.  It is critical that you confirm which IELTS module you require for your visa application before you book the exam as you will not be able to switch modules on the day of the exam.  Sitting the wrong module is time consuming and expensive!  How many times can I sit the exam?  As often as you like but if you do not achieve the score you need at the first attempt it is recommended that you seek some assistance in the specific paper, usually reading or writing, before you book a second exam date.
