Test Day Information


On the test day, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your individual speaking test time. You will receive your individual speaking test schedule via email one week prior to the test date. The Listening, Reading and Writing Section sections of the test will take place from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM without a break. Any candidates that arrive for the afternoon session later than 12:15 PM will not be permitted to take the test. Missed tests will only be considered for refund if the absence was the result of serious illness, death or hardship.
