You can take an IELTS test on paper or on a computer at one of our official test centres in Vietnam.

Either way, you will be taking exactly the same IELTS test, with the same test content and structure. The only difference is that you can choose to type your answers or write them on paper – whichever suits you best.

IELTS on computer 

You will answer the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on a computer at one of our official test centres. The Speaking test will still be face-to-face with a trained IELTS examiner, as this is the most effective way to assess your speaking skills.

Taking IELTS on computer, you will now have more test dates to choose from and your results will be available in three to five days.

* Results for taking IELTS on computer are usually available in three to five days after you finish all components of your test. Please note that if the result release day falls on Sunday or a public holiday, the test report form (TRF) will be distributed on the next working day.

Schedules of taking IELTS on computer are available in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city across Vietnam at one of our official test centres.
