IELTS Computer Delivered Tests + Band Score

Online IELTS Listening Test Practice

These pages provide you with  IELTS listening test practice with a number of online tests.

Use these to practice and prepare yourself for the test.

In the test there are four sections, and each one is more difficult than the last so you will find the test gets harder as it goes on.

In the test you can write on the question sheet and you then have 10 minutes to transfer your answers to an answer sheet.

All Listening Tests:

Full Practice Listening Test One

Full Practice Listening Test Two

Full Practice Listening Test Three

Full Practice Listening Test Four

Full Practice Listening Test Five (Video)

If you want to know what your listening band score would be for each full test that you do, keep a note of your raw score for each section, then put your total score into the IELTS Band Score Calculator.

In this free online test, you can input your answers onto the question sheet in the same way as the test (use the tab button on your computer to move to the next box). The answers are at the bottom (you don't need to transfer your answers in this test).

Make sure you DO NOT refresh the page or leave the page during the online test or you will lose your answers.

Start the Test

This is what you will hear at the start of the test:

You will hear a number of different recordings and you have to answer questions on what you hear. There will be time for you to read the instructions and questions and you have a chance to check your work.

All the recordings will be played once only. The test is in 4 Sections. At the end of the test you will be given 10 minutes to transfer your answers to an answersheet.
