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

IELTS is designed to be a fair test and your English language ability will be assessed objectively, regardless of any special needs that you may have. We can help you with any special arrangements you require for your test. Please contact us via bc.enquiries@britishcouncil.org.bh three months in advance of your test date to find out how you can apply for special arrangements.
