Test tips

Here are some ‘test tips’ for taking your test at our centre.

  • You must bring your current, valid passport.  Make sure you have this ready the day of your test! 
  • We will provide you with stationery (IELTS test) and whiteboards (PTE tests).
  • You can bring water but it must be in a clear bottle.  For some tests, you won’t be able to take water into the test room, but we will keep it safe for you till you come out! 
  • Make sure you have a nutritious breakfast (morning tests) or lunch (afternoon tests).  Your brain needs fuel! 
  • You cannot take watches or any electronic devices into the test room.  Keep all valuables at home where they are safe.
  • Apart from the vending machines there is no other food available so feel free to pack some snacks if you feel you’ll get hungry. Nothing worse than taking a test hangry!
  • Make sure you check out the venue beforehand so you don’t have any last minute stress for parking or transport. 
  • Arrive with plenty of time – you want to be as calm as possible.
  • Relax! We will do our best to look after you.
