Where to Take IELTS Test in the Philippines

People have been talking about taking an English proficiency test here in the Philippines. Is it available? How much will it cost? How should we process a registration? These are typical questions people ask. Luckily, an English proficiency examination such as the IELTS or the International English Language Testing System examination is available here in the Philippines to serve the huge number of applicants in the country. 

The IELTS is a major requirement for work, study, or even immigration in countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and some states in America.

Upon registration for the exam, be sure to know whether you have to register in the British Council or the IDP. These two are authorized agencies that deliver the examination. They may be different with their rates but the exam content is the same. Once you start registering for the exam, always have your documents ready with you. For example, have your personal identification photocopied or scanned like your passport, driver’s license and even professional ID.

With the convenience of taking the IELTS in the Philippines, more and more Filipinos are given the opportunity to fulfil their dreams in working, studying and living their dreams overseas.
