Review IELTS British Council and IDP
There are 2 test centers in Thailand which are;
1. British Council
British Council and UDP are standard institutions for IELTS Examination. The scores given by these 2 institutions also meet international standard. So, the difficulty level of the test from these institutions is the same.
British Council and IDP are almost the same price, around 6,700 THB. However, the cost depends on an exchange rate in each period.
*If the applicants do not register the test via computer system, you have to pay additional fee for 400-500 THB.
1. Identity card or Passport (same as the one you used in registration)
2. Copy of Identity card or Passport (same as the one you used in registration, only if you register with British Council)
Still, there are some differences between IDP and British Council test centers.
British Council : The Landmark Hotel near BTS Nana station
IDP : The Montien River Hotel (mostly) near BTS Saladaeng station
Difference : The Landmark Hotel is easier for travel than the other one. It is not very far from BTS Nana station, only approximately 3 minutes walk while it requires 9 minutes walk from Saladaeng station to the Montien River hotel and the place is a little bit difficult to find so you need to spare time for your travelling. Our suggestion is if you register with IDP, you should take motorcycle from BTS Saladaeng station with the cost around 20-40 THB
2. IELTS Speaking test
This test is happened on the afternoon period after the morning period. Applicants will know their speaking test time after finishing the writing part of the morning period.
British council speaking test is the same place but the test room may be changed. However, the staffs will notify you about speaking test registration and the test rooms after the writing part.
But IDP speaking test will happen at IDP office at CP Tower building 4th floor. If you are on the first queue of speaking test, you will have only 20 minutes to move yourself from the hotel to the building.
Difference : There are many waiting areas at British council test center so applicants have many waiting areas. Applicants may come early 1-2 hours before the test happens. But waiting area is limited at the Montien River hotel, applicants should come on specific time. Early coming applicants do not affect the test time.
3. What should bring on the test day
For your convenience, the test centers prepare stationery such as pencil and eraser. Applicant are not allowed to bring their own stationery into the test room. Only jacket or cardigan and plastic bottle with no label are allowed.
Difference: After finish the test at British Council test center, applicants must return stationery to the staffs. Sometimes, your pencil may not be ready to use so please check your stationery every time before the test happens. For IDP test center, applicants can bring stationery so the stationery will be newer that the other one.
4. IELTS score
The score will be sent to you 3-7 days after announcement (in case of the address in Thailand) British Council will send it to the registered address but IDP applicants will have to confirm the address with the staff after finishing speaking test.
You can check the score online after 13 days after the test date.

IDP : You need the registration number to check your score online. However, you should keep this information until you receive the original score paper. For your convenience, IDP applicants can get the original score paper by themselves at CP Tower building 4th floor since the announcement day and also receive the score via SMS without fee. For SMS, applicants must notify their purpose to the staffs first. But British council applicants have to wait their score results at home only.
