There are many advantages of this new format outlined below:
- Increased number of test availability up to 4 times a week
There are more dates and times you can take IELTS at our centre. More test availability will provide more flexibility for test takers and could help with planning and for meeting deadlines for a variety of things, including submitting applications for work, school, immigration, and more.
- Faster results
Another advantage of the taking IELTS on computer is that test results will be available quicker compared to the paper-based test. The results will be available within 5-7 days after taking the test. Currently it takes 13 days to get results for the paper-based test.
- No more messy writing
One concern we have heard from some who take the IELTS test is worrying about messy and hard-to- read handwriting. That may be a relief for many people!
Even though the computer-based test is being rolled out, you can still choose to take the paper-based test or a computer-delivered one
Same IELTS test
The computer-delivered test will be the same as the paper-based test. The only difference is that you use a computer for your test rather than using paper and a pencil!
Keep in mind that the Speaking test will continue to be done face-to-face with a certified IELTS examiner for the computer-delivered IELTS.
Should I take IELTS on paper or computer?
This comes down to personal choice.
You may be used to taking exams on paper from this other exam situations you have experienced, whereas other people might feel more comfortable typing or have more experience taking tests on computer.
Information on both options is available on ielts.org/oncomputer and you can contact your test centre if you would like further information.
