Test Information

How often is the IELTS test conducted?

 

IELTS tests are conducted at least twice or three times a month in Manila and less frequently in other venues according to demand.

 

How is the test conducted?

 

The test is conducted in two parts:

  • Part (a) Speaking Test 
  • Part (b) Written Test (Listening, Reading and Writing)

The listening, reading and writing (written parts) are held consecutively on the same day. The written parts take about three (3) hours to complete.

The speaking test only takes about 15 minutes but it is an individual test so a test schedule giving an approximate time for the test is prepared to ensure you are at the speaking test venue on time. Speaking Tests may be scheduled in the period of five days before the written parts. The venue for the speaking test may vary from the venue for the written parts of the test but candidates are advised of the correct venue.

 

When is the next test available?

 

Check the schedule at the bottom of this web page for the next available test date for your city OR telephone (02) 816 0755 and follow the prompts to listen to the recorded information on test venues and dates.

The 2013 Testing schedule is below.

 

Where are the test venues?

 

Tests are conducted regularly in Manila, Cebu, Davao and Baguio and irregularly in Bacolod, Iloilo, Legazpi, Naga, Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga depending on demand. Currently, tests are held in large hotels or in institutions with large testing areas.

The venue for the test is advised to you at the time of registering (if it is known) and also confirmed by telephone or mail about one week before the test date.

A schedule and venue for the speaking test is indicated in a confirmation letter which will be sent to the candidate/agent (if candidate applied thru a review center/agency) via email one week before the test date for Manila tests.

 

What should I bring to the test ?

 

For the written & speaking parts of the test, bring only the valid photo ID you used when registering for the test and 3 pieces of Mongol # 2 pencils.

Pens and erasers will be provided on the day of the test.

 

What NOT to bring to the test !!!!

 

Do not bring cell phones, handbags, any form of electronic equipment including any type of recording device, scanning device or photographic apparatus of any kind to the test. These items are banned from the test venue.

The only item allowed in the test venue is the candidates' valid ID. Hand bags, cell phones etc brought to the test venue will not be permitted inside the testing room. IDP takes no responsibility for the safety of any items that are brought to the test venue and must be left outside the testing room by the candidate during the test.

Candidates using or attempting to use any device to record, copy or in any way duplicate test materials or to remove test materials from the test venue will have their test cancelled and the matter will be reported to the proper authorities.
