Test dates, fees and locations

The British Council offers IELTS tests in 9 states across Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Penang, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Perak, Terengganu, Sarawak & Sabah. Registrations are handled by the British Council offices in Kuala Lumpur, Damansara and Penang. In addition to registering at our offices or online, you can also register to take IELTS with the British Council through one of our IELTS authorised agents.

Places are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly recommend that you register at least two months before your preferred test date. The cost of sitting for an IELTS test, for either the Academic OR General Training module is RM795.00 (inclusive of GST).

Your listening, reading and writing tests will be completed on the same day. Your speaking test may be conducted on the same day or up to a week before or after your main test day. You will be informed in advance if your speaking test is on a different day to your main test day.
