The IELTS online practice test is a test that helps you get ready for the actual IELTS test by providing an overview of the test format and a range of sample test questions and answers. You will also have the chance to time yourself as you complete each section of the practice test, so you better prepare for the actual test day experience.

IELTS Online Practice Test Simulations Guide

You can choose to buy Academic or General Training tests. Each test has brand-new test materials and is entirely unique. Each of the four exams has a unique number, so if you decided to purchase the Academic practice test 1, all four sections of the Academic practice test 2 and so on will be different. These practice tests are official partner products and will give you a very accurate test experience across all four sections of the exam. Each test can only be taken once, so once you've finished it and sent it in for scoring, you can't go back and take it again.

How do I practice IELTS?

The system is easy to use, and you can simply start again if you have an issue as long as you haven't finished or turned in the test for marking. The questions presented during the Speaking examination are pre-recorded, which makes it run differently than a genuine face-to-face exam. Each question has a set amount of time allotted for your response, and once the test is over, the entire tape is submitted for the examiner to hear and assign you an indicative band score. Keep in mind that this is just a practice test, therefore, we want you to be able to study without feeling pressured. To ensure you get the most out of your official online practice test, we offer the option to retake it whenever you have time. However, if you wish to have a more realistic test experience, you can do a timed test and make sure you follow the timings set in the real IELTS test.
