Here are some tips so you know what to expect on the day of the your Speaking test.
Check the date, time and address of your exam. Your centre will send you this information. If you have any questions, contact your centre before the day of the test.
Remember to check how long it will take you to travel to the venue.
Get to the exam centre at the right time. Your centre will tell you when you need to arrive. They will ask you to arrive before the start time of the exam, so that they can perform ID/security checks and explain what you should do on the exam day.
The centre may take your photo for identification before the exam.
You cannot bring your phone or anything else electronic inside the exam room. Your centre should have told you whether they will be able to store your phone securely - if they can't you should consider leaving your electronic items at home. If you have any questions, contact your centre before the exam day.
Bring your identification (ID), for example, a passport or national ID card. It must be an original (not a copy) with a photo of you.
Turn off anything electronic (for example, your mobile phone) when you arrive at the venue.
The supervisor will:
• check your ID
• give you your mark sheet – please do not fold it
• tell you where to wait, and take you to the test room.
Follow the instructions and wait quietly for your test.
While waiting for your test you can practise your English by talking to the other candidates quietly in the waiting area.
Your supervisor will tell you where to put your bag and electronics (if they are providing storage) during the test.
If you have any questions or problems, tell the supervisor immediately.
Please leave quietly.
You must not speak to other candidates waiting to do their test.
