Coast English Testing has been offering IELTS tests in Metro Vancouver since 2015. Students have the flexibility to choose between IELTS on Paper and IELTS on Computer tests across cities like Vancouver, Surrey, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond and Coquitlam. Multiple test dates are offered throughout the month. We also offer online IELTS Course to help test takers prepare better for their test.
Tamanawis Secondary School is one of the official IELTS test venues run by Coast English Testing in Surrey. We offer IELTS on paper tests here and this venue is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Surrey. There are many restaurants and cafés nearby, making it ideal for a quick bite before or after the test. It is situated right across the Tamanawis park and is a bus ride away from Surrey Central SkyTrain Station or Newton Exchange (buses #322, #393).
Free parking is available on-site and the premise is wheelchair friendly. To make the test taking experience as comfortable as possible, we are proud to offer wireless headphones for the listening test. To reduce or carbon footprint, we encourage all test takers to get their own water bottles (the water container must be clear, please find more details on our website). The Speaking tests take place at the same location on the same day as the Listening, Reading and Writing tests. For more queries, do not hesitate to contact Coast English Testing by email or visit our website.

Frequently Asked Questions
How IELTS is scored?
IELTS results are reported on a 9-band scale.
IELTS results are designed to be simple and easy to understand. They are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest).
What if I need to cancel my test? Can I get a refund?
For information on cancelling an IELTS test and potentially receiving a refund, contact the test centre where you registered for IELTS.
What is the IELTS results validity period?
While it is up to each organisation to set a validity period that works for their purposes, the IELTS partners recommend a 2-year validity period for IELTS test results based upon the well-documented phenomenon of second language loss or ‘attrition’.

General Training for those migrating to Australia, Canada and the UK, or applying for secondary education, training programmes and work experience in an English-speaking environment. Both versions provide a valid and accurate assessment of the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

What is IELTS?
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as a language of communication. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).
