Need to retake one skill? IELTS One Skill Retake is here.


FREE preparation tool to prepare you for your test day

The IELTS Familiarisation test helps you prepare for your test by providing sample test questions, giving you the actual test experience on your computer*. Unlike the actual IELTS test, these practice tests are untimed, so you can familiarise yourself with the test screens and you can take your time navigating different parts of the test.

The test is now available for:

  • Listening

  • Academic Reading

  • Academic Writing

When you’ve finished taking the tests, you can scroll down to the bottom of the page to check your answers.

Where can I find other preparation material to achieve a higher band score?

We have a range of official IELTS preparation resources - FREE practice tests, IELTS Masterclass, IELTS coaching tools like IELTS Assist and IELTS Progress Check to help you achieve your desired band score.
