How does computer-delivered IELTS work?

If you choose computer-delivered IELTS, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. 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.

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

  • Content
  • Preparation
  • Timings
  • Question types
  • Scoring
  • Speaking test delivery – face-to-face speaking test with a trained IELTS examiner
  • Test Report Form (TRF)
  • Results Verification
