COMPUTER BASED

· No spare time, instead you may have to type simultaneously as you listen to the audio.

· Spellings are important.

· Instructions to write the answers (e.g. No more than 2 words and/ or a number )

are important.


Reading: 60 minutes

· You can easily underline on screen by highlighting through highlighter and can add notes too by right clicking and selecting the passage or the lines.



Writing: 60 minutes

· Task 1 (more than 150 words)

· Task 2 ( more than 250 words)

· You have to type it on the screen and there is no auto correct, however you can make corrections easily.

· Time management is under your choice to devote how much time to which task.


Speaking: 11-15 minutes

It’s a one-on-one session with the examiner and it’s a recorded interview.

No difference as it’s same as done in paper based speaking.
