Most of you probably know about ielts.org, the official IELTS website. In the past they used to have a list of official IELTS dates and those dates had a pattern, 4 dates a month for Academic exam and 2 dates a month for General Training.
Since a couple of months ago they have changed this system and now there are common dates, when you’re likely to have your IELTS exam – but still they change from country to country. And, of course, there is the availability – sometimes you will find that many exam dates ahead are booked and the first available date is months from today.
I’ve looked through most of the countries and compiled a list of IELTS dates for the second half of 2009:
August 2009 :
General Training test: 8th, 22st
Academic test: 8th, 22th
General Training test: 5th, 26st
Academic test: 5th, 17th, 26st
General Training test: 8th
Academic test: 8th, 24th, 31st
General Training test: 7th, 19th
Academic test: 7th, 19th, 21st
General Training test: 5th, 12th
Academic test: 5th, 12th
This list will help to get an idea of possible dates, but I would still recommend that you visit ielts.org and get the available dates in your country and your city, before you start planning. They keep changing their website, so the location of the dates search can move – right now it’s in the right upper corner on the homepage, where it says “Search Test Date”.
Good luck, everybody!
