One test, countless opportunities.
On Monday 23 March 2020, New Zealand’s Prime Minister announced that New Zealand would enter a four-week nationwide lockdown due to the Coronavirus.
All IELTS testing in New Zealand is postponed for a period of four weeks.
If you have booked a test between Wednesday 25 March and Wednesday 22 April, you will be contacted by your test centre to confirm the cancellation and offered a test date transfer or full refund. Please be patient while our test centres manage an increase in customer enquiries.
