Prepare for your test

Free IELTS practice tests

Prepare for IELTS with these free practice tests and answers. Time yourself and develop your exam technique.

The practice tests in this section offer you the opportunity to

  • get to know the test format
  • experience the types of tasks you will be asked to undertake
  • test yourself under timed conditions
  • review your answers and compare them with model answers

Remember, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing tests all on one day with no breaks in between, so it is important to do the practice tests under similar conditions.

Each test is presented over a number of web pages. Make sure you answer the questions and carry out the tasks on each page in the correct order. 

If you prefer to practise offline, download the tests, blank answer sheets, transcripts and answers from the introductory pages.

"If anyone's going to take the IELTS test, I think they should practise the exams." Mohamed Al-Hilali, Egypt
