IELTS Indicator Test

If you are applying to an educational institution, IELTS Indicator is the online test that you can use, to safely demonstrate your language skills during the Covid-19 shutdown, when it’s not possible to take the IELTS at an official test centre.

It’s held once a week online
IELTS indicator is online, so you can take it at home and stay safe – and it’s held once a week at a scheduled time.

It covers the four skills
The online test assesses each of the IELTS skill areas: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The Speaking test is delivered via video call with a fully qualified and trained examiner, maintaining IELTS focus on assessing conversational English proficiency.

It’s an official IELTS product
IELTS Indicator is a timed test that matches the structure of an in-person test. It remains reliable, fair and accurate, because it uses standard IELTS marking procedures and official IELTS examiners.

It gives you an indicative score
You will get your scores within seven days – both an indicative score for each section and an overall band score.

It is not a substitute for the in-person IELTS
Once testing resumes, your university or education provider may ask you to take the in-person IELTS, even if you have taken IELTS Indicator.

IELTS Official Video: IELTS Indicator technical instructions:

IELTS Indicator is an online test that can be taken from the comfort and safety of your home. The test includes four skills – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking, and you will receive an indicative score for each. Your performance will be marked by IELTS examiners and you will receive your result within seven days.

The Academic test is available for a limited time while IELTS testing is currently suspended due to COVID-19. Educational providers can use IELTS Indicator to help them gauge the English language ability of future students while IELTS testing is suspended. 

As IELTS Indicator provides an indicative score only, it is not accepted by all organisations. Before you book, be sure to check with your university or educational institution. IELTS Indicator is an Academic test only and has not been developed for immigration purposes.
