IELTS is now testing on computer!

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 Australia. Now – you also have a choice with 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 desktop computer. All aspects of the test are identical to the paper-based IELTS test, including:

  • Question types
  • Content
  • Timings
  • Marking

More test availability and faster results

Faster results
When you take computer-delivered IELTS, your test result will be available in 5-7 days. The Writing and Speaking components will continue to be marked by IELTS examiners to ensure the highest level of accuracy and fairness.

More test availability
Computer-delivered testing will allow us to increase the number of test dates (with paper-based and computer-delivered) each week, offering your more flexibility with test dates and times.
