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 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

*In the computer-delivered Listening test, the timings are slighly different from the paper-based test.

  • Before the start of each part of the Listening test you will have some time to read the questions.
  • After the end of each part of the Listening test you will have some time to review your answers.
  • At the end of the Listening test, you will have 2 minutes to check your answers.

The timing of the Listening test is between 30 – 36 minutes long.

Computer-delivered IELTS Speaking test

Want to know the best news of all? The IELTS Speaking test is the same as always – face-to-face, in a quiet room, with a real, human examiner.
