What IELTS Answer Sheets Look Like

The IELTS answer sheet may vary slightly depending on the test format (paper-based or computer-based) and the section of the test. However, generally, the IELTS answer sheet consists of the following elements:

  1. Test taker information: This section includes the test taker’s full name, date of birth, and candidate number.

  2. Listening and Reading sections: For these sections, the answer sheet contains spaces for the test taker to write their answers. The spaces are numbered to correspond with the question numbers on the test booklet.

  3. Writing section: For this section, the answer sheet includes spaces for the test taker to write their answers to the two writing tasks. Each task has its own space, and the space is divided into two parts: one for Task 1 and one for Task 2.

  4. Speaking section: The speaking section does not have an answer sheet, as the speaking test is conducted face-to-face with an examiner.

In the Listening and Reading sections, the test taker is required to write their answers using a pencil. The test taker must write their answers clearly and legibly, and must use the correct spelling and punctuation.

It’s important to note that the IELTS answer sheet is a valuable document and should be treated with care. The test taker should ensure that they write their answers in the correct spaces, and that they do not make any unnecessary marks or corrections on the answer sheet.
