Information and advice about your IELTS test day
If you are taking IELTS remotely at home or elsewhere, you can find out more about the setup and requirements in our IELTS Online section.
The information below only applies if you take your IELTS tests at a test centre.
You might feel a bit nervous about your IELTS test day. So that things go as 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. Your confirmation e-mail will provide you with timings and procedures on the test day. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to take the test.
If you have asked for special arrangements as a result of a disability or other condition, adjustments will be made for you on the test day. Please contact us in advance.
Kindly note that, if you have not reached your 18th birthday yet, you need to present the Minor Safe Collection Consent Form signed by a parent/carer on the test day, otherwise you will not be able to take your IELTS exam.
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.
