Both exams are essentially the same, with only difference being the medium of examination distribution. IELTS is taken on paper and evaluated manually whereas CD-IELTS is delivered through computer software.

The results for CD-IELTS arrives within 5-7 days. There are multiple exam dates with examination centers available in cities such as New-Delhi, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai,Pune and others.
