Candidates are required to bring the same passports used for registration on the day of the test. No other form of identification is accepted. The test begins at 9:00 am and the total test time is about 3 hours and 15 minutes (Listening, Reading and Writing). The Speaking test is scheduled during the afternoon Saturday after the written portion of the test between 12:30 pm and 6:00 pm. You should therefore be prepared to remain at the test center the whole day on Saturday. Requests for specific Speaking test times are not granted, and we cannot change your allotted time once it is scheduled.
Please leave personal items (such as cell phones, cameras, iPods, calculators) at home or in your vehicle as you will not be able to take them into the test room. You are only allowed to bring the following items into the test room: your passport,drinking water in a transparent bottle, and/or reading glasses if needed (no case). If you need other forms of liquid or food in the test room for medical reasons, you should request permission from the IELTS Test Administrator on duty before the day of the test. Please let us know well before the test date if you have any questions regarding what is and what is not permitted in the test room.
