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 in good time for your IELTS test. You will check the online notice at least four days before the test so you will know at what time your test starts.The notice will also provide you with the procedures and timings on the test day. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to take the test.
Only in case if you have asked for special arrangements - as a result of a disability or other condition - in advance, adjustments will be made for you on the test day. Please contact our exams staff six weeks in advance. Some of the supports may not be available when there was no prior request.
Your Speaking test may be offered on the same day as the other sections of the test, or on the other day (usually on Sundays). You will receive notification in advance if your Speaking test is on a different day to your main test day.
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.
