IELTS Test Format

All candidates are tested in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking Modules. There is an option of either Academic or General training in the Reading and Writing Modules. It takes about 3 hours to complete the Listening, Reading and Writing. Speaking test is conducted in the afternoon on the same day. Please reserve the whole day for the examination.

Only at IDP Bangkok (Saturday test), you may choose to do speaking test either on Saturday, Sunday or Monday after the written tests. You can just simply inform our IELTS staff at the application point.
