Convenient test dates, quick results with paper based IELTS

If you choose paper based IELTS, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner. 

The Listening, Reading and Writing components of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day. The Speaking component, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests.

Special arrangements

We aim to ensure that every candidate is treated fairly and objectively and that they are given optimum conditions to take their exams. We can make arrangements to accommodate special circumstances or requirements to enable test takers to attend a test centre, to understand questions and to give their exam answers. Please contact us via ielts@britishcouncil.org.tr three months in advance of your test date to find out how you can apply for special arrangements.
