He said the categories of examinations offered are academic and general tests. These tests offer opportunities for people to either study or work abroad. Mr. Adesegun also added that IELTS is offered both on paper and on computers for Gen Z especially. The paper-based tests are conducted every week of the month, while the computer-based tests are offered on a monthly basis.
