Test Day

Testing continues to operate as an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have introduced several new safety procedures in our test centres. Here are a few of the things we are doing to help maintain a safe testing environment for everyone.

At the test centre, please:

  • Keep a distance of 2 metres from other test takers and staff.
  • Wear a mask. Bring your favourite one, or we are happy to provide one! (Masks should be removed for the registration photo only).
  • Be prepared to sanitize your hands and have your temperature taken on arrival.
  • Use the (provided) white disposable bag for your belongings.

What we are doing:

  • We have reduced capacity of each exam by 40% or more.
  • All test equipment is sanitized between each use.
  • Finger scans will not be taken at registration.
  • Test-takers will receive an email 2-3 days before their test day, requesting a health declaration as it relates to Covid-19. It is important that you respond to this email.

If you are unwell or have contact with anyone with cold,
flu or Covid-19 symptoms:

  • Before your test – do not attend your test. You must send an email before 6pm on the day of you test to: info@ilacielts.com. Please tell us your name, test date, location and receipt number. We cannot issue transfers or refunds for absent test takers who do not advise us before 6pm on the day of the test.
  • During your test – If you feel unwell during your test, please inform your invigilator immediately. Any test taker who displays symptoms, such as fever or excessive coughing, will be advised to leave the test centre and contact 811 for further guidance.
  • After your test- Call 811 to report.

Other things to note:

  • Disposable gloves are allowed. Hand sanitizer bottles are not allowed into the test room but can be kept outside.
  • Anyone who does not comply with social distancing rules or wear a mask fully covering their mouth and nose will be asked to leave the test centre. A refund will not be provided.
  • Pay attention to any distancing signs or guidelines, such as tape on the floor to mark 2m between test-takers.
  • Washroom facilities are open and available for use on test day. Water dispensers are not – please bring your own water in a transparent bottle.
