The IELTS Test centre varies with regard to speaking test times/days.
The first three modules — Listening, Reading and Writing — must be completed in one day. The Speaking Module may be taken in the period seven days before or after the other modules. This arrangement is at the discretion of the test centre and, in most cases, all four modules should be completed in one day.
