International English Language Testing System (IELTS):
Due to the recent announcement by the Government of Canada on the new pathway to permanent residency there has been a significant increase in demand for the IELTS test. This increase in demand has led to some delays in IELTS test centres and/or British Council responding to queries. Please understand that IELTS test centres and British Council are fully dedicated to responding to queries as quickly as is possible under these circumstances.
