Information and advice about your IELTS test day
You might feel a bit nervous about your IELTS test day. So that things go smoothly as possible for you, we’ve put together some information to help you understand what will happen on the day of your test.
You will need to arrive on or before 8:00 am for your written test and 30 minutes before your speaking test. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to take the test.
If you need special arrangements as a result of a disability or other condition, adjustments will be made for you on the test day. Please contact our customer service staff at least six weeks before your preferred test date and before you register.
Your Speaking test may be offered on the same day as the other sections of the test, or up to a week before or after. The test centre will send you a confirmation for the Speaking Test date seven days before your written test. If you registered less than 7 days before the written test, you will be notified of your speaking test date the next working day after your successful registration.
Make sure you are prepared and have something to eat and drink beforehand. You will not be allowed to take food into the test room and you will only be allowed to take water in a transparent bottle.
