Question
QUESTION: I wanted to know wherefrom can i get the various structures in english.also i needed to know about IELTS.how can i appear and about the validity and use of scores.

ANSWER: Anabell,

I am unsure as to what you mean by various structures in English, so please give me more details so I can help.

For the IELTS - here you have their official website with all the up to date info about the test.

http://www.ielts.org/

info about scores: http://www.ielts.org/test_takers_information/getting_my_results/my_test_score.as

To my knowledge once you take the test and get a certain set of scores for the 4 sections (reading, writing, speaking, listening), those scores are valid for 2 years from the date of the test.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best,

Amy Baker
