Preparation for Testing Day

Taking a language test or proficiency exam can be stressful. ICA makes the preparation easy.

The first step is calling our administrative staff. We’ll swiftly find a date, time and examination team that fits your needs.

At least five business days before the test, submit your payment. We accept cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover).

Testing appointments can be rescheduled or cancelled; however, examinees must cancel or reschedule their tests at least seven business days before the test date to avoid penalties.

On the day of the event, examinees should arrive at our metro-accessible Rosslyn facility at least 15 minutes early. All supplies and materials are provided.

For examinees, outside of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, ICA can administer speaking/listening and reading tests by phone. Reading materials are sent via fax or email.
