If you select this option, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day. The Speaking test, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests.
You can also take IELTS on computer. It’s exactly the same test as paper-based IELTS, but instead of writing your answers on paper, you will type them on a computer.
Please choose the option you are most comfortable with; paper-based or computer-delivered.
