Is Road to IELTS Online all I need to prepare for the exam?
Road to IELTS Online is a self study resource which we recommend you follow along with other forms of preparation (face to face courses or self study preparation books).
How and when do I get access to the materials?
When your payment for the IELTS test is confirmed you will be sent access codes to the materials - you will be able to use the materials up to three months before the date of your exam. You will then create your own personal log on and as a double check on your identity you will be asked to enter the date of your IELTS written test. You will be able to access the materials in the three months before the date of your test as many times as you wish, and up until one week after the date of your written exam.
To log in to the materials you should access the Road to IELTS Online portal here.
What if I forget my personal log on details?
You should access the Road to IELTS portal and request your password which will be automatically sent to you. If you have any further questions about the materials please contact our offices.
