The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the most widely used English language test for jobs, study, and migration. More than 11,000 organisations rely on IELTS as a credible assessment of actual English communication competence.
Here are steps on how to Book for IELTS Exam in India!
Step 1: Locate your local IELTS test centre or take IELTS online.

There are around 1,600 IELTS test centres in over 140 countries. Locate the nearest testing facility.
If you want to take your exam from the comfort of your own home or another private location, IELTS Online, our online IELTS Academic test, is now available. Ascertain that you have all you need to take the IELTS online.

Step 2: Schedule your IELTS exam.

You can register and pay online, or you can download an application form to print, fill out, and send to your preferred test centre. A copy of your valid identification document will be required. On the day of the exam, you must also show the same identification document.

Step 3: Your IELTS exam has been scheduled.

If you booked IELTS on paper or on your computer, your test centre would send you an email after completing your application, confirming the day and time of your test. Your Speaking test may be moved to a different day, which your test centre will confirm. If you purchased IELTS online, you would receive an email confirming your test booking, and your Speaking exam would normally come first.
