Computer-Delivered IELTS Vs Paper-Based IELTS
Many test centers around the world offer two versions of the test:
1. a computer-delivered version; and
2. a paper-based version.
The most important point to understand regardless of what format you choose: the contect of both tests are exactly the same.
There are, obviously, some differences in relation to delivery and they are listed here:
- on one you used a pencil, on the other you use a keyboard.
- There is a slight difference with the computer-delivered listening test: instead of getting 10 minutes to transfer your answers, you have 2 minutes to check your answers. This means the computer-delivered IELTS listening test is between 30–34 minutes.
- As far as the writing test, if you are a faster typer than a hand writer that could be an advantage.
- The Speaking test is always face-to-face with a certified IELTS Examiner.
All the best for your IELTS test!
