Alhamdulillah on the 20 & 22 April 2017, I took the IELTS test and got an overall band 7.0. There are two options to take an IELTS test. It’s either through IDP Education or British Council. I took under IDP Education.
Here’s my tests details:
Speaking Test Date: Thursday, 20 April 2017
Speaking Test Time: 10:50:00 AM (You should arrive 30 minutes earlier for registration)
Speaking Test Venue: IDP Education Ltd – Kuala Lumpur, 10th Floor, (West Block), Wisma Selangor Dredging, 142-C, Jalan Ampang,50450, Kuala Lumpur.
LISTENING, READING & WRITING (LRW) TEST

Registration Time: 7:30:00 AM
LRW Test Venue: 1st Floor Function Room, The ZON All Suites Residences on the Park, 161-D, Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur.
As for my results, I got these:
Overall Band Score: 7.0
CEFR Level: C1
I took IELTS test because it is a prerequisite to further study abroad. Most universities set a minimum of 6.5 for all categories. If you plan to take an IELTS test, I suggest you book a date at least 2-4 weeks ahead. So that you have some time to do some revision. Don’t get too confident with your present English. IELTS test is very technical. So it would be a huge advantage if you can study the dos and don’t. I suggest you follow through this free course:
All the best!!
