Computer-delivered IELTS is available with morning and afternoon test sessions.

For more than 21 years, IELTS has been a paper-based English test that people have used to achieve their work, study and migration dreams in New Zealand. 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.

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 New Zealand. Now – you also have a choice of how you take your test. 

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* 

  • Marking 

*In the computer-delivered Listening test, the timings are slightly different from the paper-based test. This is because the paper-based test requires test takers to transfer answers to an answer sheet. This step is no longer required when answering directly on a computer.

  • 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.

How is computer-delivered IELTS different from paper-based IELTS?

If you’ve done IELTS before, you might know the paper test. So, what about the computer test? IELTS on computer is exactly the same test as paper-based IELTS, but instead of writing your answers on paper, you will type them on a computer.
