Booking the Test
You must take the IELTS test at an official IELTS centre. The only test centre in Manchester is at the University of Manchester Language Centre. On their website you can find available test dates and an application form that you can print out: www.ulc.manchester.ac.uk/ielts/
You can ask your teachers for advice about when to take your test and try to book it as early as possible. Test centres can become fully booked quite quickly, especially in June and July, so leaving it to the last minute may mean that you have to travel to another city or even take it in your home country. There are more than 800 test centres and locations in over 130 countries where you can take the IELTS exam. The following website will help you to find a test centre outside of Manchester: http://www.ielts.org/test_centre_search/search_results.aspx
