Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the IELTS exam centers are going to be closed in Russia. It is considered to be one of the world’s most popular English language tests that has more than three million users in the past year. Russian candidates who plan to take an IELTS test will have to travel to another country to get the exam and fulfill the English language proficiency requirements. Prospective students and immigrants to Canada can still take the CELPIP exam when applying for a Canadian visa or permanent residency (PR).
