If you have a disability or condition which might require special arrangements, you should discuss it with your IDP IELTS test centre as soon as possible. Each case is considered individually and you will need a current medical certificate from a specialist. Depending on your requirements, test centres will require three months to put arrangements into place. Special arrangements include the following:
- A4 enlarged print (usually 18 point bold) and Braille test papers, an amanuensis to write answers, a Braille word-processor – for those with visual difficulties.
- Special amplification equipment, lip-reading version of the Listening module – for those with hearing difficulties.
- Extra time for the Reading and Writing modules, use of a word processor – for those with learning difficulties (eg dyslexia).
Once you have booked your IELTS Test, please contact your local test centre immediately to advise them of your special requirements.
