If you or your dear one is struggling to get a Visa for their dream country, Canada, the USA, or England, for better life opportunities, you understand that making dreams come true can be challenging.

For those in Pakistan, navigating the preparation landscape for CD IELTS comes with its unique challenges and opportunities. Fortunately, a wealth of resources are available to aid your preparation journey.

Always Keep the Time Limit in Mind:

Similar to the paper-delivered test, CD-IELTS has a time limit of approximately 30 minutes that needs to be followed. However, unlike the paper-delivered IELTS, in CD IELTS, candidate only have 2 minutes to review their answers once the section is over. In addition, remember not to get too anxious when the time flashes red; it means you still have 10 or 5 minutes left.

Structure of The Test:

The structure for both tests is the same for the speaking section, which must be done one-to-one with an IELTS examiner. However, the only difference in the listening, reading, and writing sections is that the candidate completes the test via typing through his computer in CD IELTS.

About the Listening Section:

When preparing for the listening section in CD IELTS, candidates will find a user-friendly interface designed to facilitate a smooth testing experience. You’d receive the instructions in a box at the top of the screen, ensuring clarity before you begin. A navigation bar and back/forward arrows allow seamless movement through the questions, while the ‘Review’ option lets you mark questions you wish to revisit. Additionally, the volume can be adjusted through the volume bar, allowing for a comfortable listening volume throughout the test.

Understanding these features is just the beginning of preparing for the Computer-Delivered IELTS. However, candidates in Pakistan might have certain expectations regarding how these functionalities play out in an actual test environment. To bridge the gap between your expectations and the reality of taking the CD IELTS in Pakistan., it’s crucial to have accurate, firsthand information.

About the Reading Section:

The Reading section might look slightly different on the screen. The reading text appears on the left side of the screen, with the questions on the right. The reading text can be highlighted by dragging the cursor over it and clicking on the highlight option when it appears. Also, the candidate can leave answers blank or change answers, just like in the paper-based test.

About the Writing Part:

For the writing section, the question appears on the left side of the screen, and the candidate has to write his answer in the space provided on the right side. 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 in the top-right corner. You can choose the size and color of the text and the screen resolution. This will allow you to adjust to what’s comfortable for you.
