December 20, 2019 (prsubmission) – The computer-based test center for IELTS is launched in Bangalore on 17.12.2019 by the British Council in a small function at the Taj West End hotel.
This permanent testing center, which is a long-pending request by the Bangalurians, is located at the Taj Westend hotel in Race Course Road, Bangalore, where currently 21 people
can sit for the test at a time. With the introduction of this facility there are more test dates accessible, test takers can pick IELTS at a time suitable for them, and they will
get their results in 1 week. CBT is similar to paper-based test including question pattern, content, timings, etc. Candidates will take the listening, reading and
writing modules using a desk top computer, but the speaking test remains the same one-to-one with a real examiner.
For more details on test preparation and test booking, candidates can contact The IELTS Academy, Bangalore, or visit their website http://www (dot) ieltsacademy (dot) org.
