Computer-Delivered IELTS

What makes the Computer-delivered IELTS test different?

Unlike the paper-based IELTS test, you will be taking the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. Although, the Speaking section will still remain face-to-face, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills and prompts a more lifelike performance.

All other aspects of the test will remain identical:

  • Content
  • Timings
  • Question types
  • Marking
  • Security arrangements
