IELTS management is centrally controlled but the administration of the test takes place in local test centres. This guarantees flexibility and adaptability, and ensures a very rapid turn around from registration to results. Most centres conduct a testing session at least once a month and more often at peak times. Special test sessions can be arranged for particular sponsors or organisations according to the global IELTS test date schedule. Information on the availability of test sessions at centres can be found on the IELTS website at . The chart below shows the test procedure for candidates.
Transferring answers to the Answer Sheet

Candidates are required to transfer their answers to an Answer Sheet for the Listening, Academic Reading and General Training Reading Modules. Ten minutes extra time is allowed for transferring answers at the end of the Listening but not for the Reading. If the candidate does not transfer the answers during the test time the OMR will not be marked and the candidate will receive a band score of 0 for the Listening and/or Reading. The Answer Sheet is double-sided; candidates write their Listening answers on one side and then turn over and write their Reading answers on the other side. After marking at centre all Answer Sheets are returned to Cambridge ESOL for analysis.

An example of a completed Listening Answer Sheet is given below for guidance. It is important that candidates complete their personal details at the top of the page and obey the instructions for transfer of answers. Please note the advice given for completion of the Answer Sheet. Candidates must take care when writing their answers on the Answer Sheet, as incorrect spelling and grammar are penalised. Both UK and US versions of spelling are acceptable.
