IELTS One Skill Retake is now accepted in all Australian states!


Taking IELTS when you have visual difficulties

If you are blind, partially sighted or have problems seeing, we may be able to help you take your IELTS test.

It can take six weeks for some special arrangements to be made. Please contact your test centre as soon as possible to inform them you have special requirements. All requests for special requirements are subject to approval.

What will the IELTS test centre do?

The test centre will:

  • ask for full details of your visual difficulty

  • confirm the deadline to book your test with special requirements (this depends on what you need and is usually up to six weeks before your test)

  • make the arrangements you need to take the test.

If your chosen test centre does not have the equipment or space you need (e.g. a separate room), they will do their best to help you find a centre that does.

Your centre may also ask you to provide a medical certificate.

What special arrangements can I ask for?
