Test dates in 2020

Important information on IELTS tests: 

To protect the health of IELTS test takers in light of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), IELTS tests have been suspended at INTO University of East Anglia and throughout the UK until further notice.

Affected test-takers at our centre will be eligible for a refund by contacting our centre via email. You may also wish to be placed on our waiting list to be contacted when testing becomes available. Affected test-takers applying for a refund will receive a return of their test fees in full. Please contact ielts@uea.ac.uk with any queries.

If you have been affected by IELTS test cancellations, you may wish to look into online options on the Take IELTS website. These include free practice materials and webinars, as well as IELTS Indicator. IELTS Indicator is a paid online service which aims to provide a more accurate representation of your IELTS scores than a mock test. IELTS Indicator is not intended to be a replacement for an in-person IELTS test, but you should check with the organisation that asked you to take IELTS if they accept results from IELTS Indicator.

You can find more information on practice materials, webinars here and IELTS Indicator here
