IELTS, the world’s most popular English test for higher education and migration can now be taken on a computer from 1 October 2018 onwards.
We are continually enhancing IELTS to improve the experience for our test takers and stakeholders.
Computer-delivered IELTS will not replace paper-based IELTS but rather offer a choice in delivery and more availability.
Test takers can now choose the option and time to take IELTS that best works for them. They can also get their results faster, with results typically available between five to seven calendar days after the test has been completed.
The test content and structure remain the same in both options and, importantly, the Speaking test remains face-to-face with a certified IELTS Examiner. Whether test takers take IELTS on paper or computer, they can be confident that they are taking the same trusted English language test.
It’s the same IELTS, at the same price, but with more choice.
Test takers who choose the option of computer-delivered IELTS can also access support materials with which to prepare for taking IELTS on a computer.
IELTS is one of the world’s most popular high-stakes English language tests, with over three million tests taken in the past year, and is recognised by more than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies.
IELTS is the most widely used test of English for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. It is recognised by more than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies, including all universities in Australia and the UK and many of the leading institutions in the USA.
