The Listening, Reading and Writing sections are completed on the same day without interruption. During the pandemic, we are testing in the morning and in the afternoon. All sessions allow for social distancing. Morning sessions are usually between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and 12:00 p.m. and the afternoon sessions, between 1:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The Speaking section can be taken on the same day as the other sections or up to 7 days before or after the date you have selected for your written exam. You can choose the day and time during the online registration. It takes place in the place where you have been summoned, with the assigned interviewer. This may be face to face or by videoconference, this means greater flexibility in the delivery of oral expression tests, along with greater availability. The video call exam is also carried out in an official center of the British Council with the same high standard of identity verification. The test will be exactly the same as the in-person oral test in terms of content, scoring, timing, question format, and security provisions.
