Please note

When registering for IELTS you can choose between two test delivery models – In-person or Video Call Speaking (VCS).

In-person is the standard face-to-face IELTS speaking test. VideoCall Speaking (VCS) is a system which enables the delivery of the IELTS speaking test through a secure video connection over the Internet. This allows candidates to interact remotely with their examiner. 

The actual speaking test remains the same, but the mode of delivery is online. 

Please be informed that the test centre may change the speaking test delivery model. You will be notified accordingly if the delivery model of your test is changed. If this happens and you would like to apply for a refund or transfer please see this policy for more information.

What does the fee include? Our IELTS test fee includes exclusive preparation materials, free practice tests and much more.

Test schedule / timings

Your Listening, Reading, and Writing sections of the test will be completed on the same day with no break in between. During the pandemic, we are running 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. 
If you take IELTS on paper, your 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. 

Choose your Speaking test slot

You can choose your Speaking test slot whether you take IELTS on a computer or on paper. If we need to change your slot due to the pandemic, we will notify you by email or phone.
