IELTS Test Day Information

IELTS Test Day Information

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) assesses all four language skills, through four test sections: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Each skill is tested separately. You will take the Listening (30 minutes), Reading (60 minutes) and Writing (60 minutes) tests all on the same day one after the other, with no breaks in between. At IALF, the Speaking Test is usually held on the same day as the other three tests, but may be arranged up to seven days before or after that. The total test time is around 3 hours.

On the day

  • Registration begins 1 – 1.5 hours before the test starts, at 7.30am (Jakarta, Surabaya and centres managed by them) or 8am (Bali, and centres managed by Bali).
  • If you arrive late you will not be able to sit the test and your test fee will not be refunded.
  • Registration includes digital photo and fingerprint matching with your ID.
  • You must bring your form of identification (KTP or passport). This ID must be original – photocopies are not accepted – and it must be the same ID used on the Application Form. If you fail to bring this ID on the day of the test you will not be permitted to sit the test and your test fee will not be refunded. You will also not be permitted to transfer to another test date.
