In May 2014, IRCC announced it was renewing its trust in IELTS for another five years.

Computer-delivered IELTS

Same IELTS, more choice

 

Available for Academic and General Training

 

Computer delivered IELTS in Canada

 

A new way to experience IELTS

Everyone loves choice, and with IELTS, the more options, the better. Now, with computer-delivered testing, you will take exactly the same IELTS test, Academic or General Training, but you can choose to type your test on a desktop computer, or write them on paper – whichever suits you best.

 

What is computer-delivered testing?

It’s exactly the same test content and structure, but you’ll take it sitting in a modern computer lab using the latest technology and with technical staff on hand to help. Many test takers have told us they would like to try it, so computer-delivered testing is now being introduced at test centres across Canada.

Why you might choose a computer-delivered test

 

You prefer typing to writing

Whether you are more comfortable typing than writing, or you think your handwriting is hard to read, using a computer is a perfect solution. Plus you can go back and edit your answers easily during the test – as you can with the paper-based option.

 

You can still plan your answers on paper

70% of test takers we spoke to said they liked being able to plan the Writing section of their test on paper, and you can still do this with computer-delivered testing.

 

Same standards. More venues.

It’s the same IELTS test trusted for its fairness and integrity by more than 10,000 organisations all over the world, and now it’s available in British Council test locations throughout Canada.

 

Same content. Greater flexibility.

It covers the same content, but now you have more dates to choose from including picking the day of the week that fits best with your schedule.

 

Same preparation. Easier booking process.

You can still prepare with the British Council IELTS apps and online learning materials, and now booking is even easier with our new mobile-friendly registration system.

 

Same Speaking test. More convenience.

The Speaking test is still face-to-face in a private room with a trained and qualified Examiner, as it is the most effective way of assessing speaking skills. To make things easier, now you can select online the day on which you take it.

 

Same results format. Faster results.

Your results are still delivered in the same easy-to-understand Test Report Form, and now you can view them online in 5-7 days and have your Test Report Form sent to you by post.
