IELTS

The test is available in two versions, IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training. Both tests are classified in the same way.

You’ll take the first three parts of the test on the same day, in the following order:

Listening*

Reading

Writing

Speaking

Between these tests there are no breaks.

Depending on local arrangements, your speaking test will be held either on the same day or 7 days before or after that.

Remember, there will be a number of native speaker accents in the listening test (Canada, American, Australian, New Zealand and UK). All standard English varieties are accepted during the test.
