Suggestions and Tips that may assist you to take IELTS Test better

Make sure you attend on time
Know the date, time and place of your test and arrive before the scheduled starting time. If you arrive late for any of the papers, report to the supervisor or invigilator. You may not be allowed to take the test.

Bring what you need
Take into the test room only the pens, pencils and erasers which you need for the examination. Correction fluid and highlighters must not be used. Leave anything which you do not need, or which is not allowed, either outside the test room, or as instructed by the supervisor. You may not lend anything to, or borrow anything from, another candidate during the test.

Examination instructions
Listen to the supervisor and do what you are asked to do. Tell the supervisor or invigilator at once if you think you have not been given the right question paper, or if the question paper is incomplete or illegible. Read carefully and follow the instructions printed on the question paper and on the answer sheet. Fill in the details required on the front of your question paper and on your answer sheet before the start of the test.

Advice and assistance during the test
If you are in doubt about what you should do, raise your hand to attract attention.  The invigilator will come to your assistance. You may not ask for, and will not be given, any explanation of the questions. If on the day of the test you feel that your work may be affected by ill health or any other reason, you must inform the invigilator at the time.

Leaving the test room
You may not leave the test room without the permission of the supervisor or invigilator. You can not leave your seat until all papers have been collected and you have been told you can leave. When you leave the examination room you must leave behind the question paper, your answer paper, any paper used for rough work clearly crossed through and any other materials provided for the test. Do not make any noise near the examination room.
