IELTS on Paper or Computer

You now have the choice of taking IELTS on paper or on computer in several locations.

IELTS on Paper

If you select this option, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
If you have a special requirement, please register for IELTS on paper.

IELTS on Computer

If you select this option, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. The Speaking test will remain face to face with a certified IELTS Examiner, as we believe it is the most effective way of assessing your speaking skills.

All four sections of computer-delivered IELTS are completed on the same day. The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of paper-based IELTS are completed on the same day. The Speaking test, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests.

We are committed to making sure that IELTS is available to everyone. If you have a special requirement, please register for IELTS on paper, as this format is available worldwide, and caters to all test takers regardless of need. If you select IELTS on computer, you will use a different registration system, and we will not be able to complete registration process.

Please choose the option you are most comfortable with: paper-based or computer-delivered.
