In certain situations, you may need to postpone or cancel your test.

If you cancel your test or request a transfer of the IELTS exam up to five weeks prior to the scheduled test date, the test centre will charge an administration fee. 

Candidates have the option to transfer to another test date, by paying an administration fee.

If you cancel your test or request a transfer within five weeks of the test date for medical reasons, you must provide supporting medical evidence within five days of the test date. The only evidence of serious illness will be considered. Only original medical certificates will be accepted and this must state your inability to appear for the test on the scheduled test date.

If you cancel your test within five weeks of the test date for any reason other than a medical issue, bereavement or hardship/trauma, you will not be eligible to receive a refund.

If you need to postpone or cancel your test due to the bereavement of a close family member or hardship/trauma, valid evidence is required for an exemption to be made.

Download the application form and send it to us along with the appropriate documents and/or evidence no later than five days within the test date via e-mail, or courier. Documents accepted include a medical certificate from a qualified medical practitioner, a death certificate or a police report.

Once the transfer application has been approved for the selected test date, the candidate will be granted a transfer. Please note that candidates are only allowed to transfer their test date once.

If you pay for your IELTS exam through the ICICI Bank, but do not complete your registration for the exam with us within three months of payment date, the full amount of your exam fee will be forfeited and we will not be able to grant a refund or fee adjustment against any exam date. 

Candidates who cancel their IELTS test at least five weeks prior to the test date will receive a refund. 

Candidates who request for a cancellation of their registration more than five weeks prior to the test date will receive the refund after deduction of cancellation/postponement fee. 

Fee paid at ICICI bank will be refunded via NEFT. (a copy of cancelled cheque is required to be submitted along with the application for postponement or cancellation)

Fee paid online will be refunded to the bank account that was used for making online payments.
