Generally, the Academic module is designed for individuals who are planning to study in higher education or those seeking professional registration. For example, nurses who want to practice their profession in Australia. The Academic module evaluates how ready the candidate is to begin studying and working in an English-speaking environment. The General Training, on the other hand, measures ones fluency in practical, everyday English context. These candidates usually wants to study or train in secondary education or migrate to an English speaking country.
