IELTS Retake Fee

IELTS Rescheduling Fee

If a candidate wants to reschedule their IELTS exam, then they have to pay an IELTS rescheduling fee of 3300 INR for it. This rescheduling pushes the IELTS exam date by five weeks from the original test date. If you want to postpone or cancel your IELTS then you will need to pay a fee for it as well.

IELTS Special Handling Requests

IELTS ensures a comfortable environment for all exam applicants, therefore, If an applicant has any of the issues like hearing, visual difficulties, or medical conditions, then they can inform their exam centre six weeks before their IELTS exam date for their special arrangement requirements.

Special arrangements include the following:

  1. Extra time for medical conditions or infant feeding
  2. Braille papers
  3. Special Listening CD with the required pauses and stops
  4. The Listening Test with Lip Reading
  5. Speaking task cards in Braille or enlarged print.

IELTS Booking confirmation

A final confirmation email having all the pertinent information like your IELTS test date, time, and location is delivered to the candidate's registered email ID five to seven days before their IELTS exam. Candidates can check their spam/junk folder frequently if they don't seem to receive any emails from IDP while while ensuring that their email account settings permit them for the same.

Computer-Based IELTS

The Computer-based IELTS test, as the name implies, uses a computer to administer the test rather than the traditional pen-and-paper format. The questions, patterns, and organization are all the same as in the paper-and-pencil edition, and even the IELTS exam booking process is the same. The advantage of Computer-based IELTS is that its result is released in 5 to 7 days. Students can select a comfortable time for the Computer-based IELTS tests, and more test dates are available for the same.

TRFs

Within one month of taking the IELTS exam, a candidate may ask for up to five extra TRFs to be delivered to the receiving organizations (universities, professional bodies, etc.).
