Introducing computer-delivered IELTS
The new way to take IELTS
The world’s most popular high-stakes English language test for work, study and migration can now be taken on computer.
The introduction of computer-delivered testing provides:
Computer- delivered IELTS test format
The IELTS test is offered in two formats - IELTS Academic and General Training. Unlike other providers, the IELTS General Training test is the only non-academic test available for migration to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, The United Kingdom and The USA. Good news is, now you can choose how you take your test.
How is computer-delivered IELTS different?
We have only one aim at heart – make it convenient for you! If you opt for the computer-delivered IELTS test, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing components using a desktop computer. All aspects of the test are identical to the paper-based IELTS test, including:
- Question types
The test that’s trusted around the world
The technology might be new, but everything else about the test is the same, from the question structure and scoring to the level of security you’ve come to expect from IELTS.
Computer - delivered IELTS Speaking test
Want to know the best news of all? 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.
Why one-on-one IELTS Speaking test is better
- Private Speaking test rooms, free from noise and distraction
- We can repeat and rephrase a question for you
- We can match your pace and level of English
- We won’t ‘time out’ on you
- We hear your accent
- We understand your strengths better than a computer
