IELTS has four parts:
The total test time is 2 hours 44 minutes.
The Listening, Reading and Writing tests are done in that order on the same day, with no break in between them.
The Speaking test will generally be programmed for the afternoon of the same day as the written tests, starting from 13.00, but please note that if necessary, Speaking tests may be up to seven days before or after the date on which you take the other three tests.
All the information you need will be provided in the letter of confirmation which is sent approximately 2 weeks before the test date. Your interview time will be posted on test day and cannot be guaranteed in advance.
No. Requesting an interview time or changing times is NOT permitted.
We will contact you prior to test day if your interview is scheduled for another day.
The tests have been designed to be international in their content, which means that a variety of native speaker accents are used in the Listening test and all standard varieties of English are accepted in your written and spoken answers.
IELTS tests come in two versions: Academic or General Training. The test you take, and the score you need, will depend on your reason for doing the IELTS test.
Check with your organization, Information for Candidates or on the Global Recognition System whether you need to complete an Academic or General Training test. In some cases either Academic or General Training may be accepted.
The Listening and Speaking tests are exactly the same in both versions,
However, the Reading and Writing tests have different content, depending on whether you're taking IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training.
