IDP Education launches computer-delivered IELTS in Adelaide and Melbourne
Published on March 14, 2018
IDP Education has officially launched computer-delivered IELTS in two Australian cities – Adelaide and Melbourne – offering test takers more choice, faster results and more test availability.
The launch of computer-delivered IELTS in Australia - available in both IELTS Academic and General Training - now provides test takers the option of undertaking the test on a computer or on paper.
While test takers now have more choice, the listening, reading and writing test content remains the same, on paper or computer, and the speaking test will continue to be conducted face-to-face with a certified and experienced IELTS examiner.
Computer-delivered IELTS is conducted in dedicated computer labs, making it a more comfortable test day experience to help test takers feel calm when undertaking the test.
Chief Strategy Officer and Managing Director IELTS, Warwick Freeland said computer- delivered IELTS is a response to changing behaviours and expectations of customers, to improve their experience on test day.
