Things NOT to do before or after the IELTS Speaking Test
Don’t give information about yourself before the test starts. The examiner will ask for your name and ID when ready.
Don’t try to “chat” with the examiner before or after the test starts.
Don’t compliment the examiner on the way they look (or the clarity of their speech, or anything else).
Don’t tell the examiner about previous test attempts or results.
Don’t ask the examiner your result after the test.
Doing any of the above will not have a negative effect on your result but it won’t affect it positively, either!
