I can share more information with regards to IDP Australia since this is where I applied. When you try to give them a call do not expect to be able to talk to an operator. All you can get is automated informations but most of the questions you have in mind would be found in one of the prompted message.
IDP Australia only accepts cash and manager's check as payments. If you are to make a manager's check please make it payable to IDP EDUCATION AUSTRALIA. Please be reminded to check their site or give them a call since prices may change without any prior notice.
It would also save you a lot of time if you download the application form from the website and accomplish it before proceeding to their office for submission.
Please bring additional pictures just in case though in your application you would already be submitting 2 passport size pictures.
DO NOT forget to bring your valid ID usually people bring their passport or their PRC License.
Upon submission and paying please wait for a few days to a week to receive a letter coming from them regarding the details of your exam such as the venue, time, date and even the location map of your exam venue.
Usually 2 weeks before the test date that you wish to schedule is sufficient to be rostered for that exam. This would still depend on the number of examinees applying for a certain date.
On the day of the exam, one thing that you should never forget is your IDENTIFICATION CARD you used when applying since this would be the only one that would be accepted as your reference and entry for the exam. Try not to bring many valuables on the day of the exam since all of your things would be deposited in one area without any numbers so anything can happen but so far no incidents but just for your own safety. Only cellphones are the ones wherein they give numbers when deposited but as for bags they just place it in one area.
Joan's Notes: So far these are some of the information I can give you. Later on I shall post some tips and questions similar to the IELTS exam to help you guys out.
