IELTS Free Sample Test
It is not necessary to attend an IELTS preparation course though it is, of course, a good idea to prepare thoroughly for the test.
The IELTS Specimen Materials have been produced according to Cambridge ESOL's Question Paper Production cycle and are the only preparation resources that are endorsed by all three IELTS partners.
NEW IELTS Specimen Materials
A revised edition of the Specimen Materials will be available from 24 January 2005. This edition will contain a complete new Listening test and nine new Academic and General Training Writing tasks.
There is also a detailed explanation of the revised assessment criteria for Writing tests (in use from January 2005), with 10 scripts rated according to the new rating scales, plus Examiner comments.
