There are more non-native speakers of English than native English speakers.

Some students say: "I only want to learn American English" or "I only want to listen to British English".

This is not good thinking :( .

IELTS uses all kinds of accents: British, USA, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and South African.

IELTS also has used 
non-native English speakers in the test. For example, you may need to listen to English being spoken by a German or Japanese speaker as part of your test. So you must get used to a variety of English accents!

The point is: 
ALL accents used in the test are clear and understandable and you must learn to understand them all.
