IELTS is a standardized test to measure four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. One can take IELTS in over 500 locations worldwide. IELTS is available on 48 fixed dates a year – up to four times a month, depending on local demand. IELTS has a set fee for its test. The Academic and General Training tests are of the same cost.
To register for an IELTS test, follow these 7 simple steps:
- Find your nearest IELTS centre and check the test dates to find two options that suit you. Note the deadline for registering for each test date. You can also see the cost of the test at your centre in local currency on the IELTS Worldwide Search
- Check with your organization or on the Global Recognition System whether you need to sit an Academic or General Training test.
- Print out the IELTS Application Form or ask your test centre for a copy. Read the information for candidates, terms and conditions complete the form and sign it. Please make sure you have a valid postal address and use the same name as on your passport. In some centers, candidates may be able to register for the test online. Please refer to the test centre's website for further information.
- Organize two passport-sized photographs, less than six months old, and sign the back of each. Please note, you must not wear glasses in the photographs you submit for IELTS registration.
- Take a photocopy of your current passport – this must be valid and not expired. (Some centers will accept a national identity card.)
- If you want your Results to be sent automatically to a university or educational institution, include the correct details in the section on the IELTS Application Form.
