There are four sections: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking and Listening tests are the same in both Academic and General modules, however the Reading and Writing tests are different.
The IELTS test is conducted in two days where the Speaking section is either conducted before the other 3 sections or after.
