With IELTS, help is only ever a click away. 

If you’re planning on taking the IELTS on computer test, you’ll find a ‘Help’ button on every screen. This video shows where you can find the Help button, and what kind of support you will receive if you click on it.

If you click the ‘Help’ button, you will be given three options:

  • The ‘Task help’ tab, where you can find out more about the task you are currently doing. 
  • The ‘Test help’ tab, which has information about how the test itself works. This can be useful if you are having difficulty navigating the computer test.
  • The ‘Information’ tab, which provides additional instructions and information on how to complete the test.

Being prepared

Reviewing all our available preparation materials before taking your IELTS test can help you feel more comfortable and confident on test day, which may help increase your focus. If you found it useful to see how to use the ‘Help’ button in IELTS on computer tests, you might want to watch some of our other test preparation videos. 

You can also practice before taking IELTS by taking a free familiarisation test. It’s a great way to experience the IELTS test system in advance of your actual test so there are no surprises on the day.
