On 20 February 2015, the UK government announced important changes to Secure English Language Tests (SELT) for visa purposes.

If you make a visa application to stay or move to the UK, you need to be aware of changes made by United Kingdom Visas & Immigration (UKVI).

Information relating to these changes can be found on the website and the main ielts website

The speaking test generally takes place on the same afternoon. However, during busy periods it may not be possible to allocate speaking tests on the same day, but you will be informed of this before your booking is confirmed.
