How do I choose between Internet-based test (iBT) & paper-based test?
We strongly recommend taking iBT based on the following advantages iBT has over paper-based test:
  • During the listening test, iBT test takers will have their own personal headphonesto listen to the questions. By having a personal headphones instead of listening to the speaker in an exam hall, test taker can listen to the questions much more clearly.
  • During the writing test, iBT test takers will be typing their answers from their keyboard using Hanyu Pinyin. This prevents the test takers from forgetting how to write certain characters (word amnesia is a thing in writing Chinese), or having a too ugly handwriting which causes the person who marks the exam unable to read the answer, hence leading to possible mark reduction.
  • iBT test takers will also be able to choose the font size for the questions and answers, which the test taker can choose the best size that eases their eye while reading the questions and answers.
  • iBT results are announced much earlier. Compared to the paper based test which is 30 days, iBT test results are released 15 days after the test ends. If you are in a hurry, iBT is the choice.
  • iBT registration ends 15 days before the examin comparison to paper based test which is 45 days. Which mean if you decides to take the test last minute, you may still register for the iBT test 15 days before the test commences.
