Take IELTS on a computer! The Reading, Writing and Listening tests are done on a computer, but the Speaking test is a face-to-face discussion.
For more than 3 years, IELTS with MOD IELTS has been a paper-based English test that people have used to achieve their work, study, and migration dreams.
But you asked for more choice – and we’ve listened.
Meet computer-delivered IELTS: the same IELTS test you know, delivered via computer, with multiple test sessions a day and fast results.
When you take computer-delivered IELTS, your test result will be available in 5-7 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 IELTS has multiple test sessions, offering you more flexibility with test dates and times.
Computer-delivered IELTS test format
The IELTS test is offered in two formats, IELTS Academic and General Training.
If you choose to take the computer-delivered IELTS test, you will take the Listening, Reading, and Writing components using a computer. All aspects of the test are identical to the paper-based IELTS test, including: Question types, Content, Timings, and Marking
Computer-delivered Listening test
The timings are slightly different from the paper-based test.
Before the start of each part of the Listening test, you will have some time to read the questions.
After the end of each part of the Listening test you will have some time to review your answers.
At the end of the Listening test, you will have 2 minutes to check your answers.
The timing of the Listening test is between 30 – 34 minutes long.
Computer-delivered IELTS Speaking test
The IELTS Speaking test is 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. Don’t struggle to be heard above a noisy test room, at IELTS we hear you loud and clear the first time.
