CES Exams Toronto is making plans to deliver a safe, physically-distanced test environment spread across more times and dates to better serve you. Some of the measures that will be taken to prioritize your safety include:

1. Deep cleaning of test centre. All testing equipment is disinfected before each test
2. 2 m spacing between candidates ensured at all times: at check-in, waiting area and in the test room
3. Each testing station has a partition, which ensures a barrier between test takers
4. Mandatory face masks for all staff and candidates
5. Staff do not come to work if they are feeling unwell. We check with all candidates before the test and offer free test date transfers to any candidate who feels unwell
6. All candidates and staff receive temperature checks on entry. Candidates with a fever or cough will be transferred.
7. Each candidate receives their own pencil. Pencils sterilized before reuse
8. Hand sanitizer available at check in and in each testing room
9. Candidates receive their own bags for personal belongings which are not reused

If you have a test booked and you cannot write the test because you are unwell or the session has to be cancelled, you will be given the opportunity to rebook a future test date or receive a refund. If you have any questions, please contact CES Exams at

The IELTS test is composed of 4 sections – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. At our centre all 4 are delivered on the same day.


Which IELTS option is right for me?

Paper Based IELTS

If you select the paper-based IELTS option, you will answer 3 sections of the test - Listening, Reading and Writing on paper. The Speaking test will be carried out face-to-face with a certified IELTS Examiner. At CES Toronto Exams, the paper-based exams takes place in small rooms and you will attempt the test with a group of 15 to 20 other candidates. At CES Toronto Exams, the paper-based IELTS exam takes places 3 times per month on a Saturday with one Thursday testing per month. CES Toronto Exams conducts the paper based IELTS exam in downtown Toronto, as well as at other locations within the Greater Toronto Area - for more details, please check the location list HERE.

Results for paper-based IELTS are available 13 days after the test. 

Computer Delivered IELTS

By choosing to do your IELTS test on the computer, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. For the Listening part of the test you will be provided with headphones. The Speaking test will remain as a face-to-face interview with a trained IELTS Examiner, as it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills. Our computer lab accommodates up to 10 candidates at a time and test sessions are available twice a day – during the week and on selected Saturdays.
