IELTS on computer 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 IELTS on computer, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing components using a computer. All aspects of the test are identical to IELTS on paper, including: 

  • Question types 

  • Content 

  • Timings* 

  • Marking 

*In the IELTS on computer Listening test, the timings are slightly different from IELTS on paper. This is because IELTS on paper 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.
