Also note, that the ID you register with must be available on the test day, otherwise you will not be allowed to sit the test

If you choose paper-based IELTS, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS examiner.
If you choose computer-delivered IELTS, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. The Speaking test will remain face to face with a trained IELTS examiner, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills.
There is a specific IELTS test for UK visas and immigration. If you are looking to work, study or live in the UK then you may need to take this test.
Students of IAB Academy, our official registration partner, may book through the Academy.

Important message for IELTS test takers from Iran
|It has come to our attention that somebody from Iran is falsely claiming to register for IELTS tests with the British Council in Armenia. This is in no way related to the British Council.
