Session and Entry Deadlines
For the Reading and Listening, and Writing tests you can create a session at any time, immediately add entries, and run the test.
For the Speaking test, you need to create the session and add the entries at least 5 days in advance of the start date. You should ensure the Start Date is at least 5 days 1 hour away to allow an hour to add entries to the session.
Once the session is less than 5 days away, you will no longer be able to add entries to it.
We recommend creating Speaking sessions 7 days before the test to give you plenty of time to add entries.
If you are adding over 500 entries to a Speaking session, please create the session and add the entries at least 10 days in advance of the start date. Failure to do this may result in a delay releasing the Speaking results for these candidates.
Speaking sessions run for two days, so the End Date will automatically populate with the date and time 48 hours from the Start Date. After the 2 day window, the candidates will not be able to access the test.
The results for Reading and Listening are available immediately after the candidate has finished the test.
The results for the Writing test are available within 12 hours of the candidate finishing the test.
The results for Speaking tests are typically available 2 working days after the test for sessions with under 500 candidates, and 5 days for sessions with over 500 candidates.
