You can take an IELTS test on paper or on a computer at one of our official test centres in Egypt.
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.
With computer-delivered IELTS, you will now have more test dates to choose from - and your results will be available in 3-5 days.
Computer-delivered IELTS tests are available in 2 cities across Egypt at one of our 7 official test centres.

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.
