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.
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:
*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.
Get your results within 3-5 days. The Writing and Speaking tests are marked by IELTS examiners to ensure the highest level of accuracy.
Computer-delivered IELTS is now testing up to 5 days a week, multiple times a day, offering your more flexibility with test dates and times.
Computer-delivered IELTS is offered at custom-built test locations. We provide you with noise-cancelling headphones for the listening test.
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.
We believe a face-to-face Speaking test is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills and prompts a more lifelike performance.
