Making notes in IELTS Computer Based Test
by: IELTS buddy

I believe you have a note paper paper and pen given to you so you can take notes if you need to, but if not ask for it. It is important for some students to take notes so you should be allowed to do this.

I don't believe though you can make notes on the computer itself (you can in the IELTS reading).

The timings are the same as for the paper-based test (without 10 minutes at the end to transfer your answers).

So you need to fill in the answers as you hear the audio, though you have some time (20-30 seconds) at the end of each section to check your answers.
