Starting from September 2023, individuals in Nigeria will be required to pay N107,500 for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examinations related to academic purposes.

The organization responsible for conducting the exam has stated that this adjustment in pricing is imperative to uphold the exceptional standards that ensure an optimal “testing experience.”
