Computer-delivered IELTS

Same IELTS test, just on a computer

Take IELTS at a British Council partner test centre

The same IELTS test.

With computer-delivered IELTS, you take the same IELTS test, but you type your answers, in a computer lab at an IELTS test centre. The Speaking section of the test is still face-to-face in a private room with an IELTS Examiner.

Accepted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and academic institutions.

Computer-delivered IELTS is accepted for Canadian immigration and by over 500 academic institutions across the country.

More flexibility, so you can take IELTS when it suits you.

Computer-delivered IELTS is available up to three times a day, seven days a week, giving you more choice on when you take the test.

Check availability with your local test centre, as dates and times vary across the country.

Same results format. Faster results.

Your computer-delivered IELTS results will be available to preview online in just three to five days. We will also send you your Test Report Form by post.

What happens on test day?

You will need to attend a local IELTS centre in order to take your test. No technical computer skills or knowledge is required, and you can still plan out your answers on paper. Staff will be available to support you, should you have any technical questions.
