You can now take IELTS at home in some countries, with the new 'IELTS Online' Test.
IELTS Online is a secure online English language test that offers the same content and format as the traditional IELTS Academic tests taken at test centres. It is a reliable option for test takers who prefer to take the IELTS test from home or cannot access a test centre.
To ensure security if you take the IELTS test at home, IELTS Online employs several methods to avoid any cheating. It incorporates rigorous pre- and post-test security measures used for all IELTS tests. Additionally, live online proctoring is conducted by invigilators directly recruited, trained, and managed by IELTS. AI monitoring is also employed to detect any fraudulent activities.
IELTS Online maintains the same high-quality content and format as the in-centre IELTS tests. The tests are evaluated by certified IELTS examiners, and results are available within six days.
The marking criteria and scoring system remain consistent so that test takers can rely on the trusted band scores provided by IELTS.
Similar to in-centre testing, if you take IELTS at home, the speaking test in IELTS Online is conducted in real-time with a trained IELTS examiner.
IELTS Online is currently available in the following countries and regions:
