Global IELTS test dates
You can choose your IELTS dates and take your test with the British Council in over 130 countries up to once a week.
The British Council schedules the following global IELTS test dates:
- IELTS Academic: 48 days per year
- IELTS General Training: 24 days per year
This means that your local British Council test centre can offer IELTS tests on any of these days, although dates may vary in some centres, according to local demand.
You will usually take the Listening, Reading and Writing tests on Thursdays or Saturdays, and the Speaking test either on the same day, or seven days before or after that.
Take a look at the Global IELTS test dates table below and find the date that suits you best. Then go to Book IELTS and check the local schedule.
