Anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or nationality, is eligible to take the IELTS exam; however, it is not recommended that those under the age of 16 take the IELTS exam.
It is possible to make an exception if a school needs an IELTS score for admission. There are special requirements for the same.
Although there is no established upper age limit or eligibility requirements, it is preferred that you reach the age of 16.
The two available versions are IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. The eligibility here depends on your requirement; as IELTS Academic test results will not be applicable for a Permanent Residency visa.
For those looking to apply for a job or immigration, the GT version is required.
Academic is for those wishing to apply as students internationally.
In case a student suffers from vision impairment or has a speech impediment, there are special arrangements made for such candidates to make the process easier for them. It is better to visit the nearest IDP branch to learn more.
