While the IELTS exam tests continue in many places around the world amid the Coronavirus situation, test takers may experience some disruptions when they attend the exam, due to additional precautions in place to help create a safe space.

In other locations, IELTS testing has been suspended in line with official requirements of healthcare authorities. In these locations, detailed plans are being put in place to ensure that you can take your tests as soon as possible once the official restrictions are lifted.

You can see the updated information on suspended tests here.

If you’re interested in cancelling your test date or scheduling your test for another time, there won’t be any financial penalty, and you won’t be charged. To arrange this, you should reach out to your test centre directly.

In locations where it is allowed and safe to take the IELTS exam, the testing is going ahead, with additional precautions and considerations in place to help protect the health of test takers and staff.

In particular, you should not attend your IELTS test if you have been in contact with anybody suspected to have the novel Coronavirus or someone with a cough or fever. Moreover, if you have been exposed to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), or if you are showing signs of the illness, such as being short of breath, you should avoid sitting the exam. Additional restrictions may apply depending on the region where you are taking the test.

If you plan to attend your test, please note the following:

On test days:

  • All venues are continuously sanitized before the start of every test.
  • test-takers or examiners cannot insist the other remove or put on a mask during the speaking component of the test.
  • Designated bins for mask disposal will be available at all venues.
  • Hand sanitizers are available for test takers at test venues.
  • All test equipment, including computers, are cleaned before each test session.
  • Test-takers and venue staff are allowed to wear masks on test days.
  • Your speaking examiner also may be wearing a mask.
  • If you choose to wear a mask, you will be required to remove it at registration, ID checks and after any toilet breaks to confirm your identity.
  • You are supposed to take all your used stationery at the end of the test.

Important Notes:

  • Do not come to the test if you are feeling unwell or showing any symptoms such as fever, cough, respiratory difficulty or other Coronavirus related symptoms.
  • If you are displaying the above symptoms, you will not be permitted to attend any exams.
  • You can request a free transfer or a refund if you are feeling unwell.
  • If you do not feel comfortable with taking the exam in the current situation, you can request a free transfer or refund and you will not be penalized.
