Candidates must complete all four sections: Writing, Reading and Listening (The order in which these tests are taken may vary.), and Speaking to obtain an IELTS Test Report Form. The total test time is about two hours and 45 minutes.
Candidates have a choice between Academic and General Training. These modules have different Reading and Writing papers.
The first three modules - Writing, Reading and Listening (The order in which these tests are taken may vary.) - must be completed in one day. No extra time will be allowed for a break during the first three modules. The speaking test can take place within 6 days before or after the Written test.
Please check the dates of your tests very carefully when you receive your confirmation notice. Your time slots for the speaking test will also be confirmed in the confirmation notice. This is uploaded to your My page 15 days before your test.
