Module may be taken, at the discretion of the test centre, either seven days before or after the other three
modules.

The Academic Reading and Writing Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the
medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and
postgraduate courses is based on the result of these Modules. The General Training Reading and Writing
Modules are not designed to test the full range of formal language skills required for academic purposed,

It is the responsibility of the candidate to inform the test centre whether they wish to take the Academic or

Training module is not offered at all test administrations. It must be noted that it may not be possible to
change module later or on the day of the test.

indication of ability in a particular module but also an indication of overall ability. This would not be
possible if modules were not taken at the same time. Stakeholders require an indication of proficiency at a
given time. Stake holder have expressed a preference for full re-testing to gain an accurate assessment of
a candidate's language proficiency. Therefore a candidate will have to re-take the full test and cannot re-
take a specific module

a general rule it is recommended that a Test Report Form (TRF), that is more than two years old should
only be accepted as evidence of present level of ability if accompanied by proof that a candidate has

3. What kind of accents can be heard in the Listening and Speaking tests?
   As IELTS is an international test, a variety of English accents are used in both of these examinations.
4. Does the listening tape provide the candidate with necessary instructions and pauses?
   Yes. At the beginning of the test, candidates receive instructions and hear a sample question. Next,
   candidates read Section One questions and then listen to Section One and answer the questions on
   the question paper as they listen. The same procedure follows for Sections Two, Three and Four. This
   takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. In the following final ten minutes, candidates transfer
   their answers onto the answer sheet.
5. Is there a similar period of ten minutes at the end of the Reading test for the transfer of
   answers?

   No. The Reading test is one hour, and you must write all your answers on the answer sheet in this
   time.
6. Can I complete the Listening and Reading answer sheet in pen?

   No. The answer sheet is scanned by a computer which cannot read pen.
7. Can I make some notes on the Listening and Reading question paper?

   Yes. The examiner will not see your question paper.
8. What is the Speaking test?
   The Speaking test is conducted with a one-to-one interview with a certified examiner, which is
   recorded on an audiocassette or a digital recorder.
9. What should the candidate bring for the Speaking test?

   The candidate needs to bring the same identification documents they supplied on registration, as
   these must be checked again against the information on the application form. These documents will
   be checked by the administrator and the Speaking examiner prior to the candidate entering the
   interview room.
10. What happens if a candidate loses their Test Report Form?
   At any time within two years of the date of the examination, a candidate can apply to the centre which
   administered the test to be sent 5 copies of the original Test Report Form free of charge. These Test
   Report Forms will not be sent to the candidates themselves, but the universities abroad, Embassy and
   Consulate. For any further copies, there is an administration charge per copy. Please contact your
   test centre for further details.
11. When will the candidate receive their results?
   Under usual test circumstances, results will be released 13 calendar days after the test.
12. How soon can candidates repeat the test?
   There is no limitation on how frequently candidates can sit IELTS. It should be noted however that
   IELTS scores are not substantially improved merely by taking the test on multiple occasions. To
   significantly improve a score it is necessary to engage in further study of a serious nature.
13. What help is available for disabled candidates?
   Test centres make every effort to cater for the special needs of any disabled candidates, to enable
   them to best understand questions and tasks and to give their answers. It is our aim for the language
   level of all candidates, irrespective of disability, to be assessed fairly and objectively. Candidates with
   special needs should inform their test centre when applying so that appropriate arrangements can be
   made.
14. What happens if a candidate is delayed by circumstances beyond their control (e.g., a
    transportation strike)?
   The test centre may offer the candidate an alternative test on the next available test date.
15. What happens if a candidate wants to postpone or cancel their application?
   Candidates who request a postponement or cancellation of their test within 5 weeks of the test date
   will normally be charged the full fee unless their request is due to medical reason and they are able to
   provide appropriate medical evidence to support their request within 5 days of the test date.
16. What happens if a candidate is absent on the day of the test without giving prior notice?

   The candidate will lose their full test fee. However, if a medical certificate is provided within 5 days of
   the test date then the full fee is refunded minus a local administrative deduction.
17. What can candidates do if they are unhappy with their results?

   Candidates may apply for an enquiry on results procedure at the centre at which they took their test
   within four weeks of issue of results. There is a standard fee for this which is fully refunded should the
   band score change.
18. Candidates can receive copies of their test results under the following conditions:

      Results from the test date and up to 1 month after.
       One (1) personal copy of the TRF (Test Report Form) for the candidate.
       Up to maximum of five (5) copies sent FREE of charge to institution addresses as provided by the
       candidate on the application form.

      From one (1) month to two (2) years.
       Candidate can request up to five (5) additional copies to be forwarded to institution addresses
       only, as provided by candidate. There may be a reasonable handling charge requested by the
       Test Centre for administration/postage.

19. Where can I take IELTS?

   You can take IELTS in over 300 locations worldwide. A full list of these locations ('test centres') is
   available on the IELTS Website.
20. When can I take IELTS?

   IELTS is available on up to 48 fixed dates a year-up to four times a month, depending on local
   demand. Your nearest test centre can give you the dates
21. What is the difference between taking the IELTS test with British Council and with IDP?
   IELTS is internationally owned, internationally focused, internationally accessible and internationally
   recognised. The British Council and IDP IELTS Australia are IELTS test delivery partners and there is
   no difference in taking the test with either organisation.
   Examiners working with both partners have to go through the same extensive training and retraining
   programme and are regularly monitored to ensure they are applying the assessment criteria
   accurately. Inconsistencies are not accepted and appropriate action is taken against those
   examiners.
22. Why have the half band scores in speaking and writing been introduced?
   The partners strive for continuous research and take feedback from stakeholders to continually
   improve the test. The stakeholders felt that introducing half band scores in speaking and writing
   sections of the test will give them information about the precise level of the candidate and enable
   them to make a more informed decision. This does not disadvantage the candidates but gives a more
   accurate result. Read more about the half bands.
23. Can I take only one module or do I have to take all four modules?
   This is not possible as the final band score is an average of the score for each of the 4 skills of
   listening, reading, writing and speaking. The proficiency of the candidates can only be judged based
   on his/her final band score. Research has shown that people can increase (via practice) or even
   decrease (via infrequent use of the language) their proficiency level from time to time.
24. How do authorities who accept IELTS know if an IELTS result is genuine?

   Most organisations that accept IELTS (universities, immigration authorities) have direct access to the
   global on-line IELTS verification service. From their computer they can see:

      if any of the information on the test report form has been altered e.g. band scores, photo, id
       numbers etc

      if an IELTS test report form is genuine
   This ensures that only genuine IELTS test report forms are accepted. Presenting a fake or altered
   test report form can have serious consequences for candidates.
25. Are there any training institutes for IELTS authorised by the British Council?
   No, the British Council does not authorise or quality assure IELTS training centres. But our website
   does have contact information of British Council Registration Centres, some of which also offer
   training facilities.
26. Why do candidates have to bring their passport to the exam?
   It is essential to the authorities and institutions who accept IELTS that they are 100% sure that the
   person who sat the exam is the same as the person whose identity appears on the TRF. Therefore in
   each country there is an agreement with these authorities on what is the most acceptable means of
   identification. For India, this is an original valid passport and our invigilators are trained to spot non-
   genuine or amended passports. The authorities who accept IELTS, such as the High Commissions in
   India, do spot checks on us to ensure we are following these procedures and would doubt the validity
   of our IELTS scores if we were not following this rule.
27. Is IELTS accepted in the USA?
   Yes, at the latest count, 1400 US universities and colleges recognise IELTS for proof of English
   language ability for students, including Princeton, Duke and Harvard Business School. Read for more
   details.
   CGFNS also recognises IELTS for nurses wishing to work in the USA. For a full list of
   universities/colleges/ receiving institutions that recognise IELTS across the globe click here.
29. Do you conduct IELTS for special needs candidates? If yes, what is the procedure?

   We do conduct IELTS test for special needs candidates. We do not have any special dates for them.
   They can take the test on the regular dates.
All special needs candidates need to provide us with:

       at least 6 weeks prior notice (for any special need requirements)
       a medical report/diagnostic report
       a written request
       two choices of dates (in case the special need requirement needs a longer period)
Special arrangements can be made for candidates with special needs, for example:

       Visual difficulties
       Hearing difficulties
       Speaking difficulties
       Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia
       Permanent writing difficulties e.g. due to cerebral palsy
       Medical condition such as diabetes
The following can be provided for special needs candidates (please check availability with centre):

       If the candidate is dyslexic, extra time can be given on request sent from the Centre to Cambridge
       If a candidate has a problem with eyesight, we can provide an enlarged print
       Braille papers (contracted and uncontracted Braille)
       Lip-reading versions of listening papers
       The use of an amanuensis (someone who writes your answers for you as you dictate them)
Further information pertaining to special arrangements for such candidates is also available.
30. Are the two tasks in the writing paper given the same weight?

    No, Task 2 is given more weight than Task 1. This is because Task 1 is a restricted type where input
    and output is to be produced on the basis of visual input given. In Task 2 the candidates are expected
    to give opinions, examples and suggestions and thus greater linguistic ability is required. This is why
    candidates are recommended to spend 20 minutes on Task 1 and 40 minutes on Task 2.
31. What happens if I lose my identity document before the test?

    On the day of the test, candidates must present the valid original passport at both the written test and
    the speaking test.
    If you lose your passport, we suggest you file an FIR and send a copy of this along with a letter
    requesting for transfer of test to another date. You are advised to also get in touch with the nearest
    Examination centre immediately. In the meanwhile you apply and get a new passport as soon as
    possible.
32. Can I take the test again if I'm rejected because I presented a fake identity document or there
    was an impersonation?
    No, you can't take the test again. You are banned from taking IELTS in the future.
33. What is the passing score in IELTS?
    There is no passing score in IELTS. However, universities or embassies may tell you the band score
    they require.
34. When will I get the test results?
    Your Test Report Form will be sent out by the British Council on the 13th day after the test.

Personal Information Management Policy Statement

IELTS Australia Limited (IELTS) is bound by the National Privacy Principles (NPP's), as set out in the
Privacy Act 1988 (as amended).
In general, IELTS partners hold the following types of personal information:

       personal details of individuals who have enquired about study opportunities in Australia, or who
        have applied to undertake a course of study at an Australian educational institution, or an
        overseas education institution that has entered into a twinning arrangement with an Australian
        education institution. As IELTS partners operate in over 30 overseas countries, it is unavoidable
        that some of this personal information is sensitive information (ie the individual's racial or ethnic
        origin);
       personal details of individuals who have applied to undertake, or have undertaken, an
        assessment service provided by, or through, IELTS. In the case of individuals who have
        completed such assessment, IELTS will also hold the results achieved by the individual;
       personal details of individuals who have formally advised/registered their interest in being
        engaged as consultants, or individuals who have been, or are currently, engaged as consultants
        on projects/programs managed by IELTS partners (or IELTS partners in consortium with other
        organisations);
       personal details about individuals who have registered their names with a service offered by the
        company (eg the Graduate Recruitment Service)
       personal details about individuals who have registered to participate in an event organised,
        managed or presented by IELTS partners, whether in its own right, or under contract for another
        organisation.
       In general, IELTS partners use this personal information for the following purposes:
       assisting an individual to avail themselves of the opportunity to undertake studies in an Australian
        education institution;
       assisting an individual to further their career after completing their studies at an Australian
        education institution, or an overseas education institution twinned to an Australian education
        institution
       provide opportunities for individuals to participate in projects/programs as consultants
       effective management of events
IELTS partners have taken reasonable steps to ensure the security and appropriate use of personal
information including:

       developing and implementing a Privacy Policy
       training its staff in the management of personal information
       developing and implementing appropriate computer system controls
IELTS is a contractor to the Commonwealth and State governments, and contracts out services.
Complaints about possible breaches of privacy should be marked as "Confidential", and addressed to:
IELTS Webmaster
Contact IELTS

Requests for access to personal information should be addressed to the Company Secretary (as set out
above).
Where a request is limited to access to an individual's personal information, the company will take all
reasonable steps to respond within five (5) working days of the receipt of the request. These steps will
include verification of the identity of the individual concerned.
Where the request is in respect of correction of inaccuracies to an individual's personal information, the
nature of the inaccuracy must be clearly stated, along with the information required to be entered in lieu of
the inaccurate information. The company will take all reasonable steps to respond within five (5) working
days of the receipt of the request. These steps will include verification of the identity of the individual
concerned.
All requests for access to personal information (for whatever purpose) will be responded to in writing, and
will be recorded in a register maintained for this purpose.
Where the individual's identity cannot be verified to the satisfaction of the Company Secretary, the request
for access will be denied.
Half band scores

From 1 July 2007, we're making a small but important change which will make IELTS Band Scores more
informative. Scores for each part of the test will still be reported on the scale from 1 to 9, but now the
Writing and Speaking tests will be reported in whole or half bands in the same way as the Reading and
Listening tests.

       Specimen Materials and CDs
1. What can the candidate bring into the examination room?

    Only pens, pencils and erasers. Correction fluid must not be used. You must leave anything which
    you do not need, or which is not allowed, either outside the examination room, or as instructed by the
    supervisor. Mobile phones and pagers must be switched off and placed with personal belongings in
    the area designated by the supervisor. Any candidate who does not switch off their phone/pager, or
    who retains one in their possession, will be disqualified.
2. Is the IELTS test completed in one day?

    The Listening, Reading and Writing components of the test are always completed immediately after
    each other and in this same order with no schedule break. The Speaking test can be taken up to 7
    days either before or after the test date.
3. What kind of accents can be heard in the Listening and Speaking tests?

    As IELTS is an international test, a variety of English accents are used in both of these examinations.
4. Does the listening tape provide the candidate with necessary instructions and pauses?
    Yes. At the beginning of the test, candidates receive instructions and hear a sample question. Next,
    candidates read Section One questions and then listen to Section One and answer the questions on
    the question paper as they listen. The same procedure follows for Sections Two, Three and Four. This
    takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. In the following final ten minutes, candidates transfer
    their answers onto the answer sheet.
5. Is there a similar period of ten minutes at the end of the Reading test for the transfer of
   answers?
    No. The Reading test is one hour, and you must write all your answers on the answer sheet in this
    time.
6. Can I complete the Listening and Reading answer sheet in pen?

   No. The answer sheet is scanned by a computer which cannot read pen.
7. Can I make some notes on the Listening and Reading question paper?
   Yes. The examiner will not see your question paper.
8. What is the Speaking test?
   The Speaking test is conducted with a one-to-one interview with a certified examiner, which is
   recorded on an audiocassette or a digital recorder.
9. What should the candidate bring for the Speaking test?
   The candidate needs to bring the same identification documents they supplied on registration, as
   these must be checked again against the information on the application form. These documents will
   be checked by the administrator and the Speaking examiner prior to the candidate entering the
   interview room.
10. What happens if a candidate loses their Test Report Form?
   At any time within two years of the date of the examination, a candidate can apply to the centre which
   administered the test to be sent 5 copies of the original Test Report Form free of charge. These Test
   Report Forms will not be sent to the candidates themselves, but the universities abroad, Embassy and
   Consulate. For any further copies, there is an administration charge per copy. Please contact your
   test centre for further details.
11. When will the candidate receive their results?

   Under usual test circumstances, results will be released 13 calendar days after the test.
12. How soon can candidates repeat the test?

   There is no limitation on how frequently candidates can sit IELTS. It should be noted however that
   IELTS scores are not substantially improved merely by taking the test on multiple occasions. To
   significantly improve a score it is necessary to engage in further study of a serious nature.
13. What help is available for disabled candidates?
   Test centres make every effort to cater for the special needs of any disabled candidates, to enable
   them to best understand questions and tasks and to give their answers. It is our aim for the language
   level of all candidates, irrespective of disability, to be assessed fairly and objectively. Candidates with
   special needs should inform their test centre when applying so that appropriate arrangements can be
   made.
14. What happens if a candidate is delayed by circumstances beyond their control (e.g., a
    transportation strike)?

   The test centre may offer the candidate an alternative test on the next available test date.
15. What happens if a candidate wants to postpone or cancel their application?
   Candidates who request a postponement or cancellation of their test within 5 weeks of the test date
   will normally be charged the full fee unless their request is due to medical reason and they are able to
   provide appropriate medical evidence to support their request within 5 days of the test date.
16. What happens if a candidate is absent on the day of the test without giving prior notice?
   The candidate will lose their full test fee. However, if a medical certificate is provided within 5 days of
   the test date then the full fee is refunded minus a local administrative deduction.
17. What can candidates do if they are unhappy with their results?
   Candidates may apply for an enquiry on results procedure at the centre at which they took their test
   within four weeks of issue of results. There is a standard fee for this which is fully refunded should the
   band score change.
18. Candidates can receive copies of their test results under the following conditions:

      Results from the test date and up to 1 month after.
       One (1) personal copy of the TRF (Test Report Form) for the candidate.
       Up to maximum of five (5) copies sent FREE of charge to institution addresses as provided by the
       candidate on the application form.

      From one (1) month to two (2) years.
       Candidate can request up to five (5) additional copies to be forwarded to institution addresses
       only, as provided by candidate. There may be a reasonable handling charge requested by the
       Test Centre for administration/postage.

19. Where can I take IELTS?

   You can take IELTS in over 300 locations worldwide. A full list of these locations ('test centres') is
   available on the IELTS Website.
20. When can I take IELTS?

   IELTS is available on up to 48 fixed dates a year-up to four times a month, depending on local
   demand. Your nearest test centre can give you the dates
21. What is the difference between taking the IELTS test with British Council and with IDP?
   IELTS is internationally owned, internationally focused, internationally accessible and internationally
   recognised. The British Council and IDP IELTS Australia are IELTS test delivery partners and there is
   no difference in taking the test with either organisation.
   Examiners working with both partners have to go through the same extensive training and retraining
   programme and are regularly monitored to ensure they are applying the assessment criteria
   accurately. Inconsistencies are not accepted and appropriate action is taken against those
   examiners.
22. Why have the half band scores in speaking and writing been introduced?

   The partners strive for continuous research and take feedback from stakeholders to continually
   improve the test. The stakeholders felt that introducing half band scores in speaking and writing
   sections of the test will give them information about the precise level of the candidate and enable
   them to make a more informed decision. This does not disadvantage the candidates but gives a more
   accurate result. Read more about the half bands.
23. Can I take only one module or do I have to take all four modules?

   This is not possible as the final band score is an average of the score for each of the 4 skills of
   listening, reading, writing and speaking. The proficiency of the candidates can only be judged based
   on his/her final band score. Research has shown that people can increase (via practice) or even
   decrease (via infrequent use of the language) their proficiency level from time to time.
24. How do authorities who accept IELTS know if an IELTS result is genuine?

   Most organisations that accept IELTS (universities, immigration authorities) have direct access to the
   global on-line IELTS verification service. From their computer they can see:

      if any of the information on the test report form has been altered e.g. band scores, photo, id
       numbers etc

      if an IELTS test report form is genuine
    This ensures that only genuine IELTS test report forms are accepted. Presenting a fake or altered
    test report form can have serious consequences for candidates.
25. Are there any training institutes for IELTS authorised by the British Council?
    No, the British Council does not authorise or quality assure IELTS training centres. But our website
    does have contact information of British Council Registration Centres, some of which also offer
    training facilities.
26. Why do candidates have to bring their passport to the exam?

    It is essential to the authorities and institutions who accept IELTS that they are 100% sure that the
    person who sat the exam is the same as the person whose identity appears on the TRF. Therefore in
    each country there is an agreement with these authorities on what is the most acceptable means of
    identification. For India, this is an original valid passport and our invigilators are trained to spot non-
    genuine or amended passports. The authorities who accept IELTS, such as the High Commissions in
    India, do spot checks on us to ensure we are following these procedures and would doubt the validity
    of our IELTS scores if we were not following this rule.
27. Is IELTS accepted in the USA?
    Yes, at the latest count, 1400 US universities and colleges recognise IELTS for proof of English
    language ability for students, including Princeton, Duke and Harvard Business School. Read for more
    details.
    CGFNS also recognises IELTS for nurses wishing to work in the USA. For a full list of
    universities/colleges/ receiving institutions that recognise IELTS across the globe click here.
29. Do you conduct IELTS for special needs candidates? If yes, what is the procedure?

    We do conduct IELTS test for special needs candidates. We do not have any special dates for them.
    They can take the test on the regular dates.
All special needs candidates need to provide us with:

       at least 6 weeks prior notice (for any special need requirements)
       a medical report/diagnostic report
       a written request
       two choices of dates (in case the special need requirement needs a longer period)
Special arrangements can be made for candidates with special needs, for example:

       Visual difficulties
       Hearing difficulties
       Speaking difficulties
       Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia
       Permanent writing difficulties e.g. due to cerebral palsy
       Medical condition such as diabetes
The following can be provided for special needs candidates (please check availability with centre):

       If the candidate is dyslexic, extra time can be given on request sent from the Centre to Cambridge
       If a candidate has a problem with eyesight, we can provide an enlarged print
       Braille papers (contracted and uncontracted Braille)
       Lip-reading versions of listening papers
       The use of an amanuensis (someone who writes your answers for you as you dictate them)
Further information pertaining to special arrangements for such candidates is also available.
30. Are the two tasks in the writing paper given the same weight?
    No, Task 2 is given more weight than Task 1. This is because Task 1 is a restricted type where input
    and output is to be produced on the basis of visual input given. In Task 2 the candidates are expected
    to give opinions, examples and suggestions and thus greater linguistic ability is required. This is why
    candidates are recommended to spend 20 minutes on Task 1 and 40 minutes on Task 2.
31. What happens if I lose my identity document before the test?
    On the day of the test, candidates must present the valid original passport at both the written test and
    the speaking test.
    If you lose your passport, we suggest you file an FIR and send a copy of this along with a letter
    requesting for transfer of test to another date. You are advised to also get in touch with the nearest
    Examination centre immediately. In the meanwhile you apply and get a new passport as soon as
    possible.
32. Can I take the test again if I'm rejected because I presented a fake identity document or there
    was an impersonation?

    No, you can't take the test again. You are banned from taking IELTS in the future.
33. What is the passing score in IELTS?
    There is no passing score in IELTS. However, universities or embassies may tell you the band score
    they require.
34. When will I get the test results?

    Your Test Report Form will be sent out by the British Council on the 13th day after the test.
