It is very important that you know how IELTS testing works so you can feel confident when taking your IELTS test.
You’ll take the first three parts of the test on the same day, in the following order: listening, reading and writing (there are no breaks between these tests). Your speaking test will be held either on the same day or seven days before or after that, depending on local arrangements.
