What is IELTS Online?

Available from early 2022, IELTS Online is our new online Academic test. It gives you flexibility for when and where you take your test. It has the same content and features as IELTS on paper and IELTS on computer taken in a test centre.

Same test of four skills delivered by humans for humans
In your IELTS Online test the Listening, Reading and Writing questions are taken the same way as with IELTS on computer. Your Speaking test will still be with a human examiner, and happens via an online video call.   

Receive IELTS Online results within 3-5 days
You will receive your results 3-5 days after taking IELTS Online. All tests are marked by trained IELTS examiners.     

You choose where and how you take your test
IELTS Online gives you  complete flexibility on how you take your test. Whether you prefer to take your test at home, in a test centre, on a computer, or with paper and pen, IELTS is the right choice for you.   

The great thing about IELTS Online is it’s the same content and format as IELTS taken in a test centre. You don’t need to learn a new test format. You can continue to prepare for IELTS the same way you always have. Find IELTS preparation materials here
