  • As there are a limited number of places for all sessions, we recommend that you register two months before your chosen test date, though places may be available after this date. 
  • Your Listening, Reading and Writing test will be completed on the same day. Your speaking test may be offered on the same day, or up to a week before or after your main test. We will tell you in advance if this is the case.
