IELTS on Computer
by: IELTS buddy

Some people these days are opting to take the IELTS computer based test.

It is exactly the same as the normal test, except the Listening, Reading and Writing are on a computer.

The Speaking test is still face to face with a trained IELTS Examiner.

A difference with the IELTS on computer test is that there are more test dates to choose from and you can get your results in 5-7 days.

Everything else about the test, such as the questions and question types, is the same as the paper based test.

Here are some useful links including links to practice tests:

Tip for IELTS computer based listening test

by Taghrid
(Kuwait)

Note for candidates taking computer driven listening test.

Pay attention to the order of questions on each page.

First I was reading top to bottom then I noticed that the question order was left to right then top to bottom.

This definitely matters because as you are listening you will be reading the wrong question.

Timing for IELTS Computer Based Test

by Smita
(Mumbai)

I understand the writing section overall is for 60 minutes and the recommendation is to spend 20 minutes for task 1 & 40 for task 2.

My question is for the computer based test, does the system time box the 2 tasks for the test taker?

For example: does the task 1 have a timer for 20 minutes?

Timings for IELTS Computer Based Test
by: IELTS

I'm afraid I'm not sure how they time it as I've not dealt with the computer based test in IELTS, but yes I assume there will be a timer that will countdown as you start.

However, my assumption is that it will be for one hour, not 20 mins for Task 1 and 40 mins for Task 2. Those times to spend on each are just recommendations, not requirements, and a candidate may wish to spend differing amounts of time on each.

So it would not make sense to stop you marking each task within those times.
