Please read these Terms carefully before purchasing and taking online IELTS mock tests at Preptical. Your access to and use of online IELTS mock tests is conditional on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. By accessing or taking online IELTS mock tests at Preptical, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

Online IELTS mock test

Preptical’s online IELTS mock tests are online tests of the four English language skills (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking) which are designed to provide you with an indication of how you will perform in an IELTS test. The reports that are published for these mock tests are not accepted by organisations which use IELTS test results (such as universities, employers and immigration bodies) and these reports cannot be used as a substitute for the IELTS test report.

Your online IELTS mock test result will consist of a band score for each component (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking) and an overall band score. It will also include feedback from an examiner for each component, as well as question-by-question analysis of the Listening and Reading sections. Your result will be made available to you within 48 hours of you finishing the test.

Online IELTS mock tests are made available to you online, outside a test location, and are not taken under supervised test conditions. Your online IELTS mock test results are indicative of the results you are capable of achieving in the IELTS test but do not guarantee that you will get the same results in the IELTS test.

You must take your online IELTS mock test yourself and must not permit others to have access to it. Preptical’s online IELTS mock tests are for personal, non-commercial use only.
