Registration for the test

Before you begin the registration process, you should be certain as to which version of IELTS you require.
There is the General Training version, which is accepted by most employers and for immigration to Canada. If you need proof of English ability for application to a university or college, then the Academic version of IELTS is what you will need. Once you know which version to apply for, you can register online or at a test centre.

Registration-online

You fill-in the online form that appears on the test centre’s website. In order to register, you will need to provide evidence of your identity. You need to upload a JPEG, GIF or PNG file of your ID that is less than 1.5 MB. The ID must be a valid, original passport or a Canadian Permanent Resident Card (PRC). The ID should have your photograph, a number, and your signature. Your uploaded file must have all three elements clearly visible.

Credit cards or debit cards are accepted for online payment. You should always check with your chosen test centre for their accepted payment methods. IELTS test centres in Winnipeg use a first come, first serve system. They will not reserve seats for test candidates. Payment is expected within 24 hours in order to secure a seat for the exam day.

Registration-paper based

It is the same procedure as online registration except you fill-in a paper form and provide a photocopy of your identification. Forms can be mailed to the test centre, or you can complete and submit them in person. You must mark the chosen date along with an alternative date that you would like to take the exam. The dates will be on the form.

There is no limit to how many times that a person can register for the IELTS test.

What about my IELTS results?

IELTS results appear on the official Test Report Form (TRF). The TRF is released on the 13th day after you sit for the IELTS test. It is important to check the Test Date and Results Chart for suggested test dates so that you can have your TRFs sent to the receiving university by the university’s application deadline. For an employer, you can tell your potential employer the time frame that is involved.

Things to bring on test day

When you arrive at the test centre, you will need to verify your identity. Bring the same identification that you used to register. Remember, that only official government ID is accepted. Bring something to write with and be sure to have two back-ups. You will need a pen and a pencil since you need a pencil for the answer sheet.

How should I prepare for IELTS?

As with any test, you should become familiar with the format, the kinds of questions, time limits, etc. Knowing these basic aspects of the exam will improve your score. For starters, you can avail yourself of the abundance of material found online. You can buy one of the many official test books. It’s really a good idea to take an IELTS preparation course with a decent number of mock exams, such as the GlobalExam solution.

Set clear, achievable objectives and goals. If you are fuzzy about what you want to achieve, you will squander your time and money. Time management is key. Schedule time for studying and follow your schedule.
