Click here for a list of test dates then contact a test centre to book your test.
You may either book your IELTS test online or visit your nearest IDP branch to book it offline. Here’s how: Log on to our IELTS India website. Select the option ‘Register for Test.’ Select your preferred test – computer-delivered IELTS/ paper-based (IELTS, IELTS for UKVI or Life Skills). Select your test type/module – Academic or General Training for IELTS, IELTS for UKVI, A1 and B1 for Life Skills (be extremely careful while choosing the module you wish to take). Pick your desired test location/city (from the available IELTS test centres in India). Once done, you will find a list of dates available for your preferences. Select your desired date and time slot. Fill up the required details and complete your online application. Remember, you will also have to upload a clear, scanned colour copy of your passport to complete the process. Proceed to pay the test fee.
IELTS has a strict booking and cancellation policy to be fair to all of our test takers. Changing any of your booking details can be done through the test centre where you booked your test. If you postpone or cancel your application more than five weeks before the test date, you will receive a refund, minus an administration charge. If you postpone or cancel within five weeks of the test date, you will be charged the full fee unless you have a serious medical reason. If you provide a medical certificate within five days of the test date, we will be happy to provide you with a refund minus the local administrative cost.
Only pens, pencils and erasers. You must bring the valid passport/national identity card you used on the IELTS Application Form with you to the test. You must leave everything else outside the examination room. Mobile phones and pagers must be switched off and placed with personal belongings in the area designated by the supervisor. If you do not switch off your phone/pager or if you keep it with you, you will be disqualified.
The Listening, Reading and Writing tests must be completed on the same day. The order in which these tests are taken may vary. Depending on the test centre, the Speaking test may be taken up to 7 days either before or after the test date.
You must bring the same identification documents (ID) you supplied on your IELTS Application Form and continue to use the same ID for each part of the test. Your ID will be checked before you enter the interview room
Typically pencil has always been recommended for the IELTS Listening and Reading of the test. In many test centres, we now also require the Writing test to be completed in pencil. This is because gradually, all of our test centres are upgrading to new scanners. These particular scanners work best with a pencil as there is no risk of your answers smudging (whereas there is with pen/ink). These test centres are also using answers sheets with a slightly updated design. We would like to emphasise that no changes have been made to the test format, content, or marking standards. This is simply an operational change. It is also important to note that if you forget to bring a pencil, the test centre staff can provide a pencil for you.
IELTS uses a 9-band scoring system to measure and report test scores in a consistent manner. You receive individual band scores for Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking and an Overall Band Score on a band scale from one to nine.
Your Test Report Form will be available to you 13 calendar days after your test date. You will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), or United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI) – in this case, you can receive two. Some test centres provide SMS alerts and you can preview your results online.
You will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form – unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) or United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI) – in this case, you can receive two. Up to five (5) copies of your TRF will be posted to the relevant institution(s) you have listed on your IELTS application form. Regular postage is free of charge. Charges for courier services and/or overseas postage will be passed onto you. Additional TRFs beyond these five can be requested from the test centre which issued the TRF. Please note, an administration fee may be charged for additional TRFs. If you have lost your TRF, please contact the test centre which issued your TRF.
It is vital to fulfil the Writing task, especially Task 2, in order to demonstrate your skills. Writing Task 2 is worth twice as many marks as Task 1. 25 percent of the Writing score for Task 2 (GT and Academic) is based on the completeness of the response. Make sure you respond to all parts of the task. This criterion is referred to as “Task Response”. If all parts of the Writing Task 2 are addressed, a person will score band 6 or higher for this quarter of their Task 2 score. If the task is not fully addressed, an examiner must award less than band 6 for this criterion. So responding to every individual part of a Writing task is very important. The remaining 75 percent of the score for Task 2 in Writing is based on vocabulary, accurate grammar and the structure and linking of ideas. Read the assessment criteria used for Academic and General Training writing tests carefully before your test day.
This comes down to personal preference and choice. Some test takers will be used to paper-based tests as this might feel similar to other exam situations from school, whereas other people might feel more comfortable typing.
No. The computer-delivered test will cover the listening, reading and writing skills. The test will be the same as paper-based IELTS in terms of content, scoring, level of difficulty and question types. The Speaking test is not changing and will still be carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
You do not need any special computer skills. PTE Academic is taken using a QWERTY keyboard, where the letters on the top line spell out ‘QWERTY’. IF you are not used to this type of keyboard, it may help to practice with one before you take the test.
You must be at least 16 years old. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you must provide a signed parental consent form before taking the test. Complete the form, then follow the instructions printed on it to send it to us.
To cancel your scheduled test, click on “Cancel” next to the relevant test. If you cancel more than seven calendar days before your test date, you will be entitled to a 50% refund. If you cancel seven calendar days or less before the test date, you will not receive a refund and must pay a new test fee if you wish to take the test in the future.
Rescheduling your test means that you keep the test you have scheduled, but change the date, time or location (within the same country). To reschedule your test, click on “Reschedule” next to the relevant test and follow the same steps you took when you initially booked the test. If you reschedule more than seven calendar days before your test date, you will pay an additional 25% of the test fee. If you reschedule seven calendar days or less before the test date, you will have to pay a new test fee in full. If you do not attend your test at the scheduled time, date and location, it will be recorded as a “No show.” You will not receive a refund of your test fee. To take the test, you will need to schedule a new test and pay the fee again.
No. You can take it at any of our test centers around the world. Make sure you check what type of ID you have to use. Refer to the Acceptable ID policy. If you are outside your home country, you will probably be asked to show your passport at the test center.

Using correct grammar is important when you speak English. If you use incorrect tenses or word forms it could be very confusing for the person you are speaking to. But, you don't have to understand much about grammar to speak correctly.
Grammar is important because it provides information that helps the reader's comprehension. It is the structure that conveys precise meaning from the writer to the audience. Eliminate grammatical errors from your writing, and reward your readers with clear communication.
Making grammatical mistakes when we speak or write is a natural part of learning a language and this is fine but to improve our production skills (writing and speaking), learning grammar is essential. Grammar is the building blocks of any language and necessary for us to convey what we want to say properly.
Not all languages have the same parts of speech. ... A common assertion is that all languages have at least nouns and verbs. It is true that all languages have some means of conveying information as a concept or as an event, but what a noun or verb is differs from language to language.
But regardless of your reason for choosing to learn to speak English, just learning a second language has huge neurological benefits: it allows your brain to work in different ways, expanding your potential and intelligence
Don't Study Grammar Too Much. The key to learning a language is finding a balance between studying and practicing. Fluent English speaking isn't the same as knowing perfect English grammar—even native English speakers make grammar mistakes! Fluency is about being able to communicate.
You can speak fluently when you learn lots of grammar and vocabulary but even then sometimes you find it difficult to make sentences. ... for some people speaking English fluently just means having a good general level of English. However fluency is more specific than that of fluency which means you can speak smoothly without stopping or hesitating.
Rules of error-free speaking and writing 1.Use simple language. Some beginners try to build very complicated sentences with things like the present perfect tense or conditionals. ... 2.Be slow and careful. ... 3.If you're not sure how to say something, don't say it. ... 4.When writing, always look things up. ... 5.Know where you can screw up.
The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand the English language as it is heard, spoken, read and written in the university classroom. It has several advantages over other English language tests, and helps you to stand out among other applicants.
The TOEFL iBT test, delivered via the internet, measures reading, listening, speaking and writing skills. It is offered more than 50 times a year and is administered online at testing sites around the world. The TOEFL PBT test, which has been discontinued, was a paper-and-pencil test that measured reading, listening, grammar and writing skills and was offered only in locations where testing via the internet is not available. The revised TOEFL Paper-delivered Test, which replaced the TOEFL PBT test, measures reading, listening and writing. There is no speaking component because of the technical requirements of capturing spoken responses.
TOEFL scores are accepted by more than 10,000 universities and other institutions worldwide, including universities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the U.K., the United States, and across Europe and Asia.
Yes, you can. There is no limit to the number of times you can take the test, but you cannot take it more than once in a 12-day period. If you already have a test appointment, you cannot register for another test date that is within 12 days of your existing appointment. The registration fee is due each time you register for a test date.
The TOEFL and GRE are both tests many people looking to attend grad school need to take, but the two tests serve different purposes. The GRE is used to determine how prepared a test-taker is for graduate-level coursework, while the TOEFL measures English language skills. ... It's possible you may have to take both exams.
