For almost 30 years, IELTS has been a paper-based English test that people like you have used to achieve their work, study and migration dreams. 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.

Please note that you will still be able to complete a paper-based IELTS test, if you prefer.

So, what is new about Computer-Delivered IELTS?

If you choose the new option, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections using a computer. The Speaking test will remain face-to-face, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills and prompts a more lifelike performance. All other aspects of the test are identical, whether it is taken on paper or on computer. Results for computer-delivered IELTS will be available 5-7 days after you finish all sections of your test.
