Please be advised that IELTS is enhancing its security systems in order to keep pace with evolving technology. IELTS is increasing its level of security and will capture a photograph of candidates and this will be used on the Test Report Form (TRF). The new systems have been piloted around the world, and all centres worldwide have been using them since 2012.


If you cancel your test or request a transfer five weeks or more before the test date, the centre will charge an administrative fee of 25% of the total test fee. If you cancel your test within five weeks before the test date for any reason apart from medical ones, you will not be eligible to receive a refund. If you cancel your test or request a transfer within five weeks before the test date for medical reasons, you must provide supporting medical evidence within five working days before the test date. Only evidence of serious illness will be considered. Only original medical certificates will be accepted and must state inability to appear for the test on the scheduled test date. Once the test date has passed you will not receive a refund nor be eligible for a transfer.

Should you become ill on the day of the test, you must immediately (on the same day) contact the Centre or one of its representatives by telephone or email. If this is not done no refund nor transfer will be effected. A medical report must also be produced within 5 days of the test date, stating that you were not fit to sit the test on that particular date.

Once a candidate presents a medical certificate, you can receive a transfer up to three months after the initial test date. Any later request in this regard cannot be honoured. You may receive a refund up to six months after the initial test date but not after.
