The IELTS test format
IELTS is completed in two sessions. In one session, you will complete Listening, Reading and Writing tests. There are no breaks between these three tests. The Speaking test is completed in a separate session on the same day. Speaking tests are scheduled as part of the application process and it cannot be rescheduled once you submitted your application.
You now have the choice of taking IELTS on paper or on computer in a number of locations.
Computer-delivered IELTS: If you select this option, you will take the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer. The Speaking test will remain face to face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
Paper-based IELTS: If you select this option, you will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a paper. The Speaking test is carried out face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
