IELTS is taking test day photographs of candidates from the test session of 25 August 2012 in all IELTS test centres in Addis Ababa.
With 20 years development, IELTS is recognized for its integrity, fairness and authority by up to 7000 receiving organizations worldwide. The new policy reflects IELTS strategy of continued test service improvement as well as security enhancement.
Photographs of candidates taken on the test day will be printed onto the candidate’s TRF (Test Result Form), and will only be used for test related purposes (including but not limited to issuing TRF, receiving organization recognition…etc) under Ethiopia and international data protection regulations.
The photograph will show the head, ears and shoulders of the candidate from the front. Please don’t wear glasses for the photograph.
All other candidate requirements remain un-changed. Please still submit the passport photo to test day personnel.
Please find the test day flow chart here for your reference; you are encouraged to review it prior to attending the test.
