IELTS test dates

Make your pick from the multiple dates and time slots available for IELTS

IELTS test dates in India are available four times a month or 48 times a year (for paper-based), and are generally held on Saturdays and Thursdays to provide flexibility and convenience to the test seekers. With the computer-delivered IELTS, you can choose from multiple dates and time slots in a day and get your results within 5-7 days. However, the availability of the IELTS dates may differ as per the test type and module you have opted for - Academic or General Training.

IELTS is a test of all four language skills - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. You will take the Listening, Reading and Writing tests all on the same day one after the other, with no breaks in between. For the Speaking test, you can book a slot online on your preferred date and time. If you fail to choose a slot within the stated time period, a time slot will be automatically allocated to you.

When booking your IELTS test dates, keep these in mind:

  • The test dates may vary as per location and test type. So once you decide on your preferred test type and location, pick the most feasible one from the list of dates available
  • Ensure to pick the correct test type (computer-delivered or paper-based IELTS, IELTS for UKVI and Life Skills) and module (Generic Training or Academic) before booking your test


Booking your IELTS date online is very simple but if you are confused with which module to take or which type to opt for, come to your nearest IDP IELTS office and we’ll help you book it offline.
