Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference?
The content, the level of difficulty & the assessment criteria are absolutely identical in both IELTS formats: on paper and on computer. The difference is that Reading, Listening & Writing in the computer-based version are taken on computer (not at home, but at an IELTS center). Speaking is delivered in the same way (face-to-face with an examiner) in both IELTS versions: paper & computer-based.
What to choose: to take IELTS on paper or computer?
It is better to decide on the format beforehand and to prepare for it purposefully, since there's a number of differences that must be taken into account when developing the skills needed for IELTS.
For example, while preparing for Computer-Based IELTS:
You need to read from the monitor on a regular basis rather than from a hard book when working on your reading skills so that this mode is familiar and comfortable for you on the actual exam.
While Listening, you should be able to immediately type your answers using the keyboard as you listen, since you will not have time to first write them down on a piece of paper and then to transfer them onto the computer.
There are two modules of the IELTS exam: Academic and General. IELTS Academic is usually chosen for entering foreign universities. IELTS General is mostly taken in order to get employment abroad, or for immigration.
IELTS (General and Academic) consists of 4 parts:
2) Writing task 1 and 2
All tasks are the same, except for Writing and Reading:
1) Writing Task 1
Academic - Analyze and describe a table, chart, graph, map, or process.
General - Write a letter of at least 150 words in one of the following styles: formal business, neutral, or informal.
Academic - three texts in an academic style. Topics that the texts can be devoted to: archeology, history, sociology, biology, etc.
General - four short texts on everyday topics: work, advertisement, job description, travel brochure, etc.
IELTS is the most popular international test which is required for studies and immigration to Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The IELTS certificate is used for admission to schools and universities where teaching is in English (UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, etc.) The IELTS certificate is required for everyone who plans to immigrate to English-speaking countries for professional migration. A certificate may also be required for certain types of UK visas and for purposes related to living, studying or working in English speaking countries.
IELTS has four parts:
The first three sections (Listening, Reading, Writing) are always taken on the same day in the above sequence without a break in between.
Speaking can be scheduled either on the same day or within a few days before or after the exam.
All candidates complete the same Listening and Speaking tasks. However, in Reading and Writing there's a difference between the Academic and the General module.
In order to get a high score on IELTS, of course, you need to be fluent in English, but, in addition, you are to develop specific skills that you will need on IELTS.
For example, if you complete IELTS Reading tasks as if you were just reading in real life, without knowing special techniques for taking IELTS, you simply will not have enough time to answer all the questions.
All tasks on the exam are quite specific and just good knowledge of English will not be enough - you need to be prepared for the IELTS format.
