IELTS Requirements - Special Cases due to Health Issues

If you require special requirements to write your IELTS exam, you must give the test center three months’ notice. The special arrangements available will depend upon the examination board and in some cases you may be exempted from a part of an exam because of a disability or difficulty. You need to submit the documents regarding special arrangements with medical evidence eight weeks before the test.
