How does IELTS on computer work?

If you choose IELTS on computer, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer at one of our official test centres. The Speaking test will remain face to face with a trained IELTS examiner, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills. If you choose this version, you also have a free choice of Speaking test date and time.

All other aspects of the test are exactly the same, whether it is taken on paper or on computer, including:

  • Content
  • Timings
  • Question types
  • Scoring
  • Speaking test delivery
  • Test Report Form
  • Results Verification

Special needs

If you have any special needs or requirements you should take a IELTS on paper test.
