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

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 Addis Ababa at one of our official test centres.

Book your computer-delivered IELTS Academic or General Training test.

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 results will be available after 13 calendar days from the test date. 

If you have any special requirements, you should take the paper-based test.

Book your paper-based IELTS Academic or General Training test - for tests until December 2020.

Book your paper-based IELTS Academic or General Training test - from January 2021 onwards
