What is the new IELTS Indicator test? Hey! Almost every IELTS test centre in the world is closed at the moment, so this week IELTS announced the launch of a new online test that will launch on the 22nd of April 2020: the IELTS Indicator Test. However, the official website does not contain very much information about what the test is and who it is suitable for. So, today, I want to explain what the test is and who should consider sitting it.
