IELTS Exam Dates

Every year, millions of students worldwide take the IELTS exam, which serves as a gateway to some of the best colleges in the world. IELTS test dates are accessible all year long, so students can take the exam whenever they're prepared. A two- to three-month timeframe is required to study for the IELTS test and perform well in it. Students can also take advice regarding the exam's format from institutions and specialists, which will speed up their ability to achieve high bands/score.

Booking IELTS test dates is simple; a student only needs to pay a certain registration cost to the IDP through one of several online or offline payment methods. Well, just to let you know, The British Council has stopped administering IELTS exams in India as of July 25, 2022. However, IDP will administer all IELTS exams in India. On July 25, IDP started accepting reservations for IELTS computer or paper tests.

IELTS Exams are accessible all year round, and students can select the IELTS Exam dates that work best for them.The Academic and General Training IELTS exams have their own time slots, and the IELTS Academic test has its own set of exclusive dates. Students now have the freedom to select a test date when they feel at ease taking the exam. All the authenticated IELTS websites offer IELTS test dates for 2023 & 2024, allowing students to select their preferred date.

Despite the fact that IELTS test dates are offered all over the world, students should always reserve the exam dates well in advance to avoid last-minute headaches. There are times when students cannot reserve exam dates even a month in advance of the date of their choice, which can seriously affect the preparation and their plans. Since computer-based tests are given three times a day, seven days a week, excluding public holidays, there is a broader range of time slots to choose from. IELTS test takers can expect their results in two to three days, which helps them plan their next steps.

Dates for the paper-based IELTS Exams are available four times every month, and students are free to select a date that works best for them. This means that students have 48 days in a year to take the paper-based test. Since the Academic test is offered on all dates, there is a difference in the dates for Academic and General Training. General Training is additionally accessible on a small number of dates.
