IELTS Test Dates 2019

IELTS test dates are at the same time around the world, though the time obviously varies according to the country.

The Academic Module is held at every session, but the General Training Module is not available every time. 

You should also note that not every test centre will have all of the tests on every date listed below.

These are global test dates and the British Council IELTS test dates and IDP IELTS test dates are the same. They will also be the same for the tests held at other centres, such as International House. 

However, some centres may not hold all the tests if test demand is lower. Speaking tests may also sometimes be held on a different day to the rest of the test if they cannot all be done on the same day. 

So you should contact your local test centre to check and check carefully any correspondence you get from the test centre after booking your IELTS test to be sure you know what dates you have been given.
