Take IELTS on computer with IDP

Live in Kathmandu, IELTS on computer offers faster results and more test dates. 

You asked for more choices – and we’ve listened. Introducing computer-delivered IELTS for the first time in Nepal – the same IELTS test you know, delivered via computer! With this format, you can avail your results within 3-5 days and choose from multiple test sessions – available up to 7 times a week and 2 times a day.

Why take IELTS on computer?

Faster results
(in 3-5 days)

More test availability 
(up to 7 days a week, 2 times a day)

When you take computer-delivered IELTS, your test result will be available within 3-5 days. The Writing and Speaking components will continue to be marked by IELTS examiners to ensure the highest level of accuracy and fairness.

Computer-delivered testing allows us to increase the number of test dates (with paper-based and computer-delivered) each week, offering you more flexibility with test dates and times. You can choose your own dates and time slots.


How is it different from paper-based IELTS?

When you opt for computer-delivered IELTS, you take the Listening, Reading and Writing components using a desktop computer. All other aspects remain the same as paper-based IELTS test, including:

  • Content
  • Question types
  • Timings
  • Marking

The timings when you take IELTS on computer are slightly different from the paper-based test.

  • Before attempting any part of the Listening test, you’ll have some time to read the questions
  • Before finishing the Listening test, you’ll be given two minutes to review your answers
  • Duration of the Listening test is approx. 30 – 36 minutes

What makes students love IELTS on computer?

What's the fee?

The test fee for computer-delivered IELTS is NPR 21,500. 

Where can I take IELTS on computer? 

Currently, you can take IELTS on computer in Kathmandu and choose from the multiple test sessions (subject to availability).

What happens to the Speaking test?

The IELTS Speaking test remains the same as always – face-to-face, in a quiet room, with a real, human examiner. We believe a face-to-face Speaking test is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills and prompts a more lifelike performance.

Let’s get familiar with the test format! 

Before you attempt IELTS on computer, it is better to get familiarised with the test format. So, we have some key videos for you to score better in the test. With these familiarisation videos you will learn how to attempt the different sections of the test, look for instructions, browse among questions, review and submit your answers as well as change the screen settings, if you need to.
