  • About the Listening Section:

 

For the listening section in CD IELTS, you’d get the instructions in a box on the top of the screen. There is also a navigation bar and back/forward arrows that would allow you to move through the questions. Check ‘Review’ if you want to review the question. What’s more is that you can adjust the volume through the volume bar.

 

  • About the Reading Section:

The reading text can be highlighted by dragging the cursor over it and clicking on the highlight option when it appears. Also, the candidate is allowed to leave answers blank, or change answers, just like in the paper-based test.

  • About the Writing Part:

The candidate can see the word count that appears continuously under his writing, just like in an MS Word document. In addition to this, you don’t need to worry about saving your work as it gets saved automatically as you write.

Furthermore, in a CD IELTS test, you can adjust the settings according to your preference by clicking on the ‘Settings’ button that appears on the top-right corner.
