How do I sign up? Can I get a refund if I cannot come on pretest day?
  • Pretest fees are non-refundable. If you cannot come, we can transfer you to a future pretest.
What kind of results will I get?
  • You will receive a raw score (the number of correct answers) for both Listening and Reading. You will not be given an IELTS Band Score, but the raw score will give you some idea of your ability in these skills. (Your teacher may be able to calculate an equivalent Band Score for your raw score, but this will be very approximate and cannot be used as an official IELTS result.)
  • For the Writing pretest, you will receive a Band Score, but again this cannot be used as an official IELTS result.
How will I get the results?
  • Your results will be sent to you via email directly from the test centre. If you registered through an agency you may get your results from them.
When will I get the results?
  • Scores are available 3-5 days after the pretest.
Where is the pretest?
  • Pretests are at our centre: Kaplan Vancouver 300-755 Burrard Street Vancouver, V6Z 1X6
What time should I arrive?
  • Please arrive at the time shown on the pretest signup website 
  • Please do not be late. If you arrive after the test has started you will not be able to join.
What do I need to bring?
