COVID-19: Information for our global test taker community

Last updated on: 13 March 2020

The IELTS Partners are committed to protecting the health of our test takers, while also trying to minimise disruption to life-changing opportunities for international higher education and migration.

In the vast majority of locations, IELTS testing is going ahead, with additional precautions in place to help protect the health of test takers and staff. 

In particular, we ask test takers not to attend an IELTS test if they have been in contact with anybody suspected to have been exposed to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), or who have a cough, fever or are showing signs of being short of breath. Additional requirements may apply depending on the region where you are taking the test. Test takers may contact our teams to discuss options for transferring to a later date or refunds. 

 



In some locations, we have had to suspend IELTS testing in line with official requirements of healthcare authorities. 

In these locations, we are putting detailed plans in place to ensure that test takers are able to take their tests as soon as possible once the official restrictions are removed.
