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.
