About SpeakREADY

IELTS SpeakREADY is a 30-minute face to face mock speaking test with an IELTS assessment expert in a virtual environment through a Zoom call. The session will include a 20 min speaking mock test on the lines of a live test, followed by a 10-minute qualitative feedback session by the IELTS assessment expert. No band score will be awarded.

The mock exam gives you the opportunity to practice your English-speaking skills and receive personalised feedback from a British Council IELTS assessment expert. You can book your IELTS SpeakREADY test for INR 1500/- only and avail the opportunity to gain confidence and achieve your desired score when it comes to the real thing.
