If you are taking the IELTS test and have special requirements—due to hearing, visual or learning difficulties—we can provide a variety of arrangements to support you during the test.
Test centres deal with all applications for special arrangements individually. You will be asked for full details of your particular circumstances. They will make every effort to make all the necessary special arrangements for you to complete an IELTS test.
Whatever your special needs, it is best to contact your local test centre as early as possible. Giving adequate notice is necessary for the modified test versions to be prepared and/or special administrative arrangements to be made.
