IELTS exam schedule and timings

Your IELTS Listening, Reading, and Writing sections of the test will be completed on the same day, with no break in between. There are tests in the morning and in the afternoon. All sessions allow social distancing. Morning sessions are usually between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm. Afternoon sessions are usually between 1.00 pm and 4.00 pm at IELTS testing centres in the Philippines.

If you take IELTS on paper, your IELTS Speaking test will take place on a different day to the other sections of the test, in a 7-day window before or after the main test day. You will receive an email confirming your Speaking test date 48 hours in advance.

If you take IELTS Online, the Speaking test will usually be before your Listening, Reading and Writing. It could be on the same or a different day.
