Which IELTS is best for me: computer-delivered or paper-based?

Monday, 24 June, 2019

The good news is that computer-delivered (CD) IELTS is now available and is an excellent exam.  The advantage of the computer-delivered IELTS is that there are frequent sittings available and the results turnaround is much quicker.  CD IELTS is great for anyone who is comfortable using a computer.  These days many people prefer to type rather than write by hand and CD IELTS offers this option. The interface is very user-friendly and intuitive with a choice of background colours and font sizes.

For those who are less comfortable with computers, however, paper-based IELTS is still available.  People who prefer to read printed texts or write by hand will probably prefer the paper-based IELTS.  Results take a little longer but it is still an efficient process.

Both exams include an in-person, face-to-face interview with a fully trained examiner.  This is a much more authentic, real-life way of conducting the exam rather than the artificial scenario of talking to a computer.

UOWD College offers both computer-delivered and paper-based IELTS. If you would like any further information or advice contact our team on [email protected] or call them on +971 278 1780.
