Computer Delivered IELTS Test

CD IELTS testing is here!

For almost 30 years, IELTS has been a paper-based English test that people like you have used to achieve their work, study and migration dreams.

But you asked for more choice – and we’ve listened. Computer-Delivered (CD) IELTS is now available at our Toronto head office location – 180 Bloor St. W. If you are ready to book it, you will find the test schedule by clicking the ‘Apply’ button below for your test type or read on for more information.

Meet Computer-Delivered IELTS

The same IELTS test you know, but delivered via computer.

Don’t worry, you can still take the original, paper-based IELTS test. Now, you simply have more choice and you can select the test format that is better suited to your needs.

The advantages of the computer-delivered IELTS include:

  • Faster results – 5-7 business days
  • More test dates – Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays
  • Listening section with headphones
  • Speaking test still face-to-face with an examiner

  • IELTS on the computer takes the Listening, Reading, and Writing sections and allows you to fully complete the 3 modules using a computer.
    Importantly, the CD IELTS Speaking test will still be delivered face-to-face by our certified IELTS examiner team.

    This combination of the computer-delivered and face-to-face examination will allow for faster results processing while maintaining the natural interaction of a live interview.

    Unlike the paper-based IELTS, all of our Computer-Delivered IELTS test sittings will use headphones.

    The test fee is $320 CAD including tax. The schedule can be found by clicking ‘Apply Now’ below!
