Is the IELTS computer delivered test right for you? Well, that will depend a number of factor, some practical (like time and price) and some educational (like can you read in detail in a computer). But, don't worry - today Nick and I will take you on a full tour of the computer delivered test so that you can work out if you want to type your answers or stick to good old pen and pencil.

Episode notes

It was only when I got to try out the computer delivered IELTS test a few months ago that I realised how different it actually was to the original paper-based test. Was it better? Honestly, for me it was, but I don't think that will be true for everybody. And that's what we'll explore in this episode.

In this episode, we will

  1. explain the practical differences between the two tests
  2. go through the IELTS listening, reading, and writing tests in detail to explain what is better and what is worse when sitting on the computer
  3. show you the official IDP introduction Powerpoint presentation so that you can learn how to control the computer properly
