Convenient test dates, quick results with IELTS on paper

If you choose IELTS on paper, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on an IELTS exam paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS examiner.

The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of all paper based IELTS tests are completed on the same day. The Speaking section, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests.

Special arrangements

The IELTS exam paper is designed to be fair and your English language ability will be assessed objectively, regardless of any special needs that you may have. We can help you with any special arrangements you require for your test. Please contact us three months in advance of your test date to find out how you can apply for special arrangements.
