Computer-delivered IELTS (CDI) was officially launched on Saturday 19 January 2019 with the dedicated CDI Lab opened by HE Miss Tina Redshaw, British Ambassador to the Kingdom of Cambodia and Mr Mao Sreng, Country Director of IDP Education Cambodia.
With the first test set to take place on Saturday 26 January 2019 in IDP’s dedicated computer lab, the new option enables test takers to get their results faster (in 5 – 7 days) and to choose from more test dates.
While test takers now have the choice between taking IELTS on computer or paper, the listening, reading and writing test content remains the same, and the speaking test will continue to be face-to-face with a certified and experienced IELTS examiner.
“It’s the first time I’ve heard of the computer-delivered IELTS and I think it’s a fantastic innovation”, said HE Ms Tina Redshaw, British Ambassador to the Kingdom of Cambodia. “All of us are just so much more used to using keyboards that IELTS moving into being computer-based is a fantastic innovation and it speeds up the results.”
Mr Mao Sreng, Country Director for IDP Education Cambodia, said the new test experience puts test takers first by offering more test sessions a week and faster results, while still maintaining the trust, integrity and security that is relied upon by the organisations who accept the results.
“Our customers’ feedback from our initial launch in other countries has been that taking the IELTS on a computer, in a quiet test environment in our dedicated computer labs, is helping them feel at ease for their test,” Mr Mao Sreng said.
“With IELTS, you are taking the gold star of English language tests. Your IELTS score is an opportunity to proudly demonstrate your English ability with a rigorous test and rise above your competition, whether through an application to a prestigious university or as you strive for your dream career,” he said.
“IDP Education has been leading the international education and English language sectors in Cambodia for more than 25 years. We are delighted to be leading the way again by introducing this option for our globally ambitious customers.”
Computer-delivered IELTS is available at the IELTS Cambodia Official Test Centre at IDP Education at the ACE Toul Kork Campus, # 08, ST. 600 Corner St 307, Sangkat Tuol Kork, Khan Tuol Kork, Phnom Penh.
