Check out our new computer delivered IELTS venue , Yokohama


You can choose to take IELTS on a computer for both the General Training and Academic tests. The test format, question types, time allocated to each test part and content is the same for both computer-delivered test and the paper-based test.

The only difference is in your test day experience. If you choose to complete your IELTS test on a computer, you will do the Listening, Reading, and Writing parts of the test using a computer. All answers will be typed on the screen. You will also be able to write notes on a notes sheet during the Listening test.

Why take IELTS on computer?

The IELTS Speaking remains the same, with a face-to-face interview with an examiner. The Speaking test will be completed either just before, or just after the Listening, Reading, and Writing test parts.

Taking IELTS on a computer has many benefits. For example, your results arrive a lot faster. With computer-delivered IELTS your results will be available within 3 to 5 days.

FREE preparation tool to prepare you for your test day

The IELTS Familiarisation test helps you prepare for your test by providing sample test questions, giving you the actual test experience on your computer*. Unlike the actual IELTS test, these practice tests are untimed, so you can familiarise yourself with the test screens and you can take your time navigating different parts of the test.
