Choose from more test dates and get your results even quicker

Everyone loves choice. We have made it easier and more convient for you to take your IELTS test. You can now take your test on a computer.

With computer-delivered testing, you can take your IELTS test, Academic or General Training, and you simply type your answers. 

What you get when you take IELTS on a computer at one of our official test venues:

  • more test dates to choose from
  • more venues to choose from
  • more flexibility
  • your results will be available really quick in 3-5 days.

How does computer-delivered IELTS work?

If you choose computer-delivered IELTS, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer at one of our official test centres. Your Speaking test will now be carried out by one of our IELTS Examiners either face to face or over a video-call at your test centre.


For Video-call Speaking tests (VCS) the Examiner will not be in the same room as you. Instead, they will speak with you via a video-call, similar to Zoom and Teams. The VCS test will be identical to a face-to-face Speaking test with the same structure, content, timing and marking. Security will also remain exactly the same. 

This development and change to the way the IELTS Speaking Test is carried out forms part of our drive to improve access and availability to IELTS all over the world.

All other aspects of the test are exactly the same, whether it is taken on paper or on computer, including:

  • Content
  • Timings
  • Question types
  • Scoring
  • Speaking test delivery
  • Test Report Form
  • Results Verification
