Video-call Speaking test

As part of our commitment to improving access to IELTS all over the world, a select group of IELTS test centres will deliver the IELTS Speaking test via high-definition video calls. This will allow more flexibility and higher availability of IELTS Speaking tests.

Test takers will take the Speaking test at an official IELTS test centre with the same high standard of identity verification. The test will be delivered via a video call by an IELTS Speaking examiner, enabling real-life, real-time, two-way interaction.

The Video-call Speaking test will be exactly the same as the in-person Speaking test in terms of content, scoring, timing, question format and security arrangements. 

The Video-call Speaking test will make IELTS tests more accessible to test takers, retaining the security and integrity. 

It will be limited to a select number of test centres. 

For more information, please contact us directly or speak to your nearest test centre.
