Our test takers are loving the computer-delivered IELTS!

I had a great experience in IDP IELTS test centre. The place is great and infrastructure is very good. The test centre has a locker facility and excellent computers with a good pair of headphones. The seats are comfortable... You don't feel the strain of sitting through a 2 and a half hour test. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Yashitha Agarwal Test taker, IDP India

I would suggest everyone to book IELTS exam at IDP Ludhiana’s Computer-delivered test centre particularly because staff here is extremely helpful and friendly. Centre is also very beautiful and quiet, with all the facilities. There is no long queues of students as in pen-paper based exam for registration.

Harkaper Saini Test taker, Ludhiana

IDP New Delhi’s Rajouri Garden CD IELTS test center is well maintained. It has nice and silent environment which was very helpful to maintain my concentration during the test. All the staff members are friendly. They provided proper instructions and answer politely if you ask any kind of queries.
