Modified on May 21, 2019

Same test. More choice.


IELTS is one of the world’s most popular high-stakes English language tests, with over 3.5 million tests taken in 2018, and is recognized by more than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies in over 140 countries around the world, including over 350 in Canada.

We are continually enhancing IELTS to improve the experience. The world’s most popular high-stakes English language test for work, study and migration can now be taken on a computer.

Same test. More choice.

Computer-delivered IELTS will not replace paper-based IELTS, but rather offer a choice in delivery and more availability. You can now:

  • choose the option and time to take IELTS that best works for you.
  • get your results faster, with results typically available between five to seven calendar days after the test has been completed.

The test content, timing and structure remain the same in both options and, importantly, the Speaking test remains face-to-face with a certified IELTS Examiner. Whether you take IELTS on paper or a computer, you can be confident that you are taking the same trusted English language test.
