COVID-19 Health & Safety

We understand these are challenging times, especially with so many unknowns. Therefore, we have compiled a detailed COVID-19 Safety Plan (Click here to read) aimed at preventing and reducing the transmission of COVID-19 and safeguarding our test takers and staff.

The team at Coast English Testing is working hard to be efficient and responsive during the pandemic. Even though the office is closed to walk-in service, we are actively responding to enquiries online. Please be patient if calling our office. We also encourage you to get in touch with us via email and we will get back to you within 3 business days.

To better direct your enquiry, please send your enquiry to ONE of the following email addresses. Please note, submitting your enquiry to more than one email address, may cause delay:

4. General Feedback:

1. Effective 18th June 2020, all Test Takers are now required to bring their own mask and wear it during the test. Test Takers who do not bring their own mask will not be permitted to sit the test and no refund will be issued. The mask should cover your mouth and nose. You may be requested to briefly remove the mask during ID checks and after any toilet break to confirm identity.

2. All Test Takers will be required to complete the Self-Declaration Form and sanitize their hands upon entry. Please note, Test Takers who answer 'yes' to any of the questions on the Self-Declaration Form will not be permitted into the test venue and will be required to transfer their test to another date.

Please Note: If you are an Essential Worker and are exempt from the requirement to quarantine, you must bring evidence on test day of your status as an Essential Worker. If you do not bring evidence, you will not be permitted into the test venue.

3. Temperature checks will be performed at all the test venues at the entrance of the building. If any Test Taker displays flu-like symptoms and/or fever (i.e. a temperature over 37.6 Celsius), they will not be allowed to enter the premises.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances, Coast English Testing is offering IELTS on Paper tests in reduced capacity. We are keeping a close eye on both the Federal and Provincial directives across the country, and accordingly, came to this decision. We now offer IELTS on Computer at an increased frequency at our Newton, Surrey location (more details below).

We are following all guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer with the aim of ensuring the safety of our Test Takers, Invigilators and Examiners, which remains our absolute top priority.

We are closely monitoring these changing events and will continue to update you as the situation develops.

Our top priority is your health and safety. Please read more on protecting yourself from novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

*Dates are subject to change keeping in mind the instability of the situation. Please check our website regularly for the latest communication.
