1. How many times can I appear for the IELTS Test?
You may appear for as many times as you wish and use any of your results.
2. Can I club two separate IELTS Test results to be eligible?
Unfortunately, you can submit all scores from only a single result.
3. Can I write in pencil in my Writing pen and paper based Test?
Yes. Pencil is preferred in the Writing module as well as in Listening and Reading as the paper is scanned. Also, you can easily erase and correct any errors.
4. Does it help if I write more than the word limit in the Writing Test?
There is minimum word limit on both task 1 (150 words) and 2 (250 words) and writing less than that, would mean that you do not have enough ideas and will result in a lower score. However, though your marks will not be deducted for just writing more, they will because you made more mistakes.
5. How do I do well in my Writing Test?
You can have a clearer understanding of what is expected of you in order to score higher in writing by going through the Writing Band Descriptors that assesses you in 4 areas.
6. What is the difference between the IELTS and IELTS for UKVI?
IELTS and IELTS for UKVI are the exact same test in terms of format, content, scoring and difficulty level. The only difference is an IELTS for UKVI test is approved by the UK Home Office for work, study and migration purposes.
7. What accents can be heard in the Listening Test?
Considering that IELTS is an International Test, you can hear native English speakers from different parts of the world such as, but most commonly Australian and British ones.
8. Can I attempt all 4 modules on the same day?
Yes, it is possible to attempt 4 modules on the same day if you opt for the computer based Test where you go through the Listening, Reading and Writing module one after the other and the Speaking Test at a separate time on the same day. Alternatively, your Speaking Test may be scheduled within the week before or after your written papers.
9. What are the changes in the IELTS exam post Covid?
The test remains the same in terms of content, scoring and evaluation, though all safety precautions are being taken and guidelines followed. Students appearing for the Speaking test will need to do so with their face mask on.

With the computer-delivered IELTS, you can choose from multiple test sessions in a day and get your results within 3-5 days. For paper-based test, dates are available four times a month or 48 times a year and are generally held on Saturdays and Thursdays to provide flexibility and convenience to the test seekers.
