IELTS Registration Procedure

You have to register for the test before you can be placed on the list for a particular test date. As these fill up quickly, it is recommended that you register as soon as possible. Be aware that registration for a particular test date is based on payment of the test fee on a first come first served basis.

The deadline for submission of application is set three weeks prior to a certain test date.

Follow these steps before you begin.

1. Contact the requiring institutions and ask for the IELTS type, module and band score.
IDP IELTS has different types of modules and tests. Colleges, universities, academic institutions, governments, companies, or employers require a specific type of test with different minimum band scores. These requirements will vary based on the course or profession. CEFR scores have equivalent IELTS band scores. Determine which IELTS band score is required by researching the CEFR IELTS comparison chart.

2. Choose your preferred test date and test location and prepare your test requirements.
