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 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 need to arrive in good time for your IELTS test. If you arrive late, you may not be allowed to take the test. Please double check the time of your written and oral exam on the Test Taker Portal.
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.
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 with no text.
