IELTS exam testing has expanded from one test session per month in 2008 to three test sessions in November 2009, with an increase in total sales of almost 75%. Now BridgeEnglish is offering a new service in the USA that combines the cost of the IELTS test with a preparation course. Worldwide, 1.8 million people took an IELTS exam in 2008 and this figure is expected to increase in 2009. Some 2,500 universities, colleges and organizations in the USA recognize the IELTS.
Most of the test candidates are foreign students studying in the Denver area, though many also commute from outside Denver to take the test. Most are preparing to enter colleges and universities, though some need the test for immigration to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. Others need the test to qualify to work in the USA in the medical professions.
