IELTS General Training test format
There are four sections to the test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.
Listening, Reading and Writing tests are taken on the same day, one after the other, without any breaks in between. The Speaking test may either fall on the same day or any day up to a week before or after the test date. For the Speaking test, you can book a slot online on your preferred date and time. If you fail to choose a slot within the stated time period, a time slot will be automatically allocated to you.
