It is internationally recognised and administered in over 210 centres world-wide. The test is used as an indicator of English language proficiency for entry into universities, TAFE (Technical and Further Education) colleges, secondary schools and colleges in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada and English language medium universities in Asia (eg. in Singapore).
