You can take an IELTS test on paper or on a computer at one of our official test centres in Vietnam.
If you take the IELTS computer-based test or the IELTS paper-based test, 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 on a computer or write them on paper – whichever suits you best.
IELTS on computer
For 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 in Vietnam 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 IELTS test report form (TRF) will be distributed on the next working day.
Schedules of available test dates for IELTS on computer are available for Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
IELTS on paper
If you choose this option, you will write the answers to the Listening, Reading and Writing sections on paper. The Speaking test will be conducted face-to-face with a trained IELTS Examiner.
Your band scores for IELTS will be available after 13 calendar days from the test date.
If you have any special requirements, you should take IELTS on paper.
