Myths Debunked – Computer based IELTS Test!!
The computer based IELTS test is different from the paper-based test, This is a myth!
The only difference between the computer-delivered and paper-based test is your test day experience. The test format, question types, time allocated to each test part, and content are the same for both computer-delivered and paper-based tests.
If you choose to complete your IELTS test on a computer, you will do the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts of the test using a computer. All answers will be typed on the screen. You will also be able to write notes on a notes sheet during the Listening test.
If you take IELTS on paper, you will complete the Reading, Listening, and Writing parts on paper. You can use a pen or HB pencil to complete your Writing test, but you must use an HB pencil to write your Listening and Reading answers on the answer sheet.
In both the paper-based and computer-delivered test, the Speaking test is completed in a face-to-face interview with an IELTS examiner.
I will get my results faster if I take IELTS on a computer, this is true!
If you take IELTS on the computer, you will receive your results 3 to 5 days after sitting your test. However, if you take IELTS on paper, you will receive your results 13 days after sitting your test.
I can do all parts of the IELTS test on the computer, This is true!
The Reading, Writing, and Listening parts of the IELTS test are completed on a computer, but the Speaking test is completed face-to-face with an IELTS examiner.
The computer-delivered test is easier than the paper-based test, This is a myth!
The test format, question types, time allocated to each test part, and content are the same for both computer-delivered and paper-based tests.
And because the content for both the paper-based and computer-delivered tests is the same, the level of difficulty is also the same. The only difference might be your level of confidence in sitting your IELTS test on a computer. If you are tech-savvy, you might prefer to take IELTS on a computer.
The paper-based test is easier than the computer-delivered test, This is a myth!
Again, both the computer-delivered and paper-based IELTS tests are the same level of difficulty. The computer-delivered test has a help button to assist you throughout the test. This help option describes question types as well as how the test works. In the computer-delivered test, there is also an option to change some of the settings, such as font size on the screen.
I need a computer to take the computer-delivered IELTS test, This is a myth!
You do not need your own computer or laptop to sit a computer-delivered test.
