The readings are online and designed to be a similar format to the IELTS Computer Based Test, thus providing you with great training and practice if you are planning to take the IELTS test via computer.

Track your scores and timings

Each reading has a 20 min countdown timer so you can track how long it is taking you and see how long it took you. You'll be given your completion time at the end.

You'll then get your score in points and see which answers were wrong. You can then place these score into our band score calculator and that will give you your band score.
