Book Now

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 the computer-delivered and paper-based test formats. The only difference is in your test day experience. If you choose to complete your IELTS test on a computer, you will do the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts of the test using a computer.

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

Experience the efficiency and convenience that computer-delivered testing brings to the table.

Comparing computer-delivered and paper-based IELTS

When you're grappling with the decision between computer-delivered and paper-based IELTS, it's crucial to understand their similarities and differences. The test format, question types, and time allocated to each test part are identical in both versions. The content you'll be assessed on also remains unchanged, ensuring fairness and reliability.

The only distinguishing factor will be your test day experience. Choosing computer vs paper IELTS will not affect your score but will certainly influence your level of comfort during the test, especially if you have difficulty accessing in-person testing facilities.

Why choose the IELTS on Computer test?

  • Faster results within 1-5 days

  • Able to adjust the computer-delivered test template to your liking, font size or background colour to make you more comfortable

  • Highlight and note function

  • Copy and paste answer during Reading, reducing the risk of misspelling answers

  • Auto word counts during Writing test to meet the Task 1 and Task 2 standards

  • Easily editable during Writing test, moving the entire paragraph or parts of it with just click and drag

Preparing for the IELTS on Computer

Successful preparation for IELTS on Computer testing involves a blend of strategies. Some strategies you can adopt are:

  • Access official online resources: Leverage free online practice materials and videos to familiarise yourself with the computerised interface. This will boost your confidence on test day, by helping you identify the types of questions that will come up.

  • Take mock tests: A mock test is the best way to assess your exam-readiness for the computer-delivered assessment. You can identify which sections you’re weak in, and reconfigure your study plan accordingly. As each section of the test is timed, mock tests will also help you identify which areas you are spending too much time on.

  • Take computer familiarisation tests: IDP Thailand offers computer familiarisation tests to help candidates get a feel for the real exam environment. While traditional IELTS prep methods are equally effective for the computer-based version, candidates also need to be familiar with the digital layout of the test in order to score well.

Balancing new and established prep techniques can give you an edge in achieving your desired band score. Sign up for IDP’s free IELTS on Computer familiarisation test to prepare for what your test day will be like.
