IELTS on Paper or Computer

IELTS can be taken on Paper or Computer

This test requires test takers to sit at a desk with the question papers and answer sheets for the Reading, Listening and Writing tests in an official IELTS test centre. Test takers will write their answers in either pen or HB-pencils. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS examiner.

IELTS is now offering the convenience of computer-delivered testing for Listening, Reading and Writing, with the comfort of real people in quiet rooms for Speaking.

If you choose to take the IELTS on computer, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing tests using a computer. The Speaking test will remain face-to-face with an examiner, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills and prompts a more lifelike performance.

Before you head into a computer-delivered IELTS test, make sure you take some time to get familiar with the computer-delivered format of the test.
