Candidates still have to take the speaking test face-to-face with a certified IELTS examiner

British Council Bangladesh has recently launched a computer-delivered testing format for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Test takers can sit for the computer-delivered IELTS at the British Council centres located in Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet.

The new computer-delivered solution is secure and capable of delivering world-leading security, quality assurance measures and operational benefits.

IELTS on a computer does not replace paper-based IELTS, but rather offers a choice in delivery and more availability.

Test takers can now choose the option and time to take IELTS that best works for them. They can also get their test outcome faster, with results typically available between five to seven calendar days after the test has been completed. 

The test content, timing and structure remain the same in both options, and importantly, the speaking test remains face-to-face with a certified IELTS examiner.

Whether test takers take IELTS on paper or on the computer, they can be confident that they are taking the same trusted English language test. Test takers who choose the option of computer-delivered IELTS can access support materials with which they can prepare for taking IELTS on a computer.

British Council in Bangladesh’s Director of Examination Sebastian Pearce said: “It’s great to give candidates a choice of times and days. It’s also an opportunity for test takers to see our office at the Dhaka University campus.”

IELTS is one of the world’s most popular high-stakes English language tests, with over 3.5 million tests taken in the past year, and is recognized by more than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies worldwide.
