Terms and Conditions (“Terms”)

Last updated: 6 March, 2017

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before purchasing IELTS Progress Check practice tests (“Progress Check”) from IELTS Australia Pty Ltd (ABN 84 008 664 766), the British Council and Cambridge Assessment English, collectively the “IELTS Co-Owners”. Your access to and use of Progress Check is conditional on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By accessing or using Progress Check you agree to be bound by these Terms.

Practice Test


Progress Check is an online practice test intended to assist you in your preparation for your IELTS Test.

After you take Progress Check, you will receive a feedback report on your Practice Test which provides you with:

  • feedback on areas the markers consider you could improve upon in order to achieve your desired level of English language competence; and
  • Progress Check results set out in IELTS indicative band scores.

The feedback report will be available within five days of completing your practice test. You can access the report by logging into your IELTS Progress Check account. You will also receive an email to notify you when your report is ready. This will be sent to the email address you provided at the point of purchase.

Progress Check is similar to but not identical to the IELTS Test. The Practice Test is made available to you online, outside a test location, and is not taken under supervised examination conditions. As an example, the speaking component of Progress Check is delivered through prompted onscreen questions, not face to face with a person as it is in an IELTS Test. Your Practice Test results are indicative of the results you are capable of achieving in the IELTS Test but do not guarantee you the same results in the IELTS Test. Progress Check is not itself a form of testing approved by recognising organisations (such as universities and immigration bodies) as a measure of English language competence.

You acknowledge that Progress Check is jointly owned by the IELTS Co-Owners.

You must take your Progress Check yourself and must not permit others to have access to Progress Check or test items. Progress Check is for personal, non-commercial use only.

From the day of purchasing a practice test, you have 90 days to complete that practice test. After this period, the test will be locked.

Age and Location requirements You can take IELTS Progress Check if you are under 16, but it is not recommended. The test content of both IELTS Progress Check and the IELTS test are designed for adult English language learners.
