Many people are curious about the differences between the IIQE’s computer-based exam and the paper-based exam.
As per the two exams’ content, they are pretty much identical. The two exams use the same Study Guide, the exam questions are drawn in the same question bank. Some people say that they have taken a computer-based exam or the paper-based exam, and think one of them is easier, but we think it is actually a matter of luck. The difficulty of the questions depends on the students’ luck. If you are lucky, there are super easy questions that will enable you to pass the exam relatively easily. If you are unlucky, there are more critical thinking application questions, and unclear questions that will affect your performance more easily. We disagree that there is a connection between the exam mode and the exam’s difficulties.
However, the paper based exam and the computer based exam are really different in other aspects.
Which exam is better to partake in? The computer-based or the paper-based exam?
You can reference the benefits below, taking the computer-based exam is perhaps the more ideal option. But the IIQE’s exam schedule is quite filled, if the exam slots for the computer-based exam are all sold out, you can only choose to partake in the paper-based exam. Otherwise, you may need to wait for a month until the next exam schedule has been released.
- The most important difference is the speed of the issue of the results.
If you take the computer based exam, you can know the score immediately after submitting the exam paper for electronic marking, so that you don’t have to worry about the results for days. But if you’re taking the paper-based exam, you can only view your exam results after 7 working days; by then your memory toward the exam questions will be blurry.
2. You can bring less items into the exam if you partake in the computer based exam
The second difference is that for computer based exams you basically only need to bring the relevant identification documents, and possibly a computer. If you take the paper based exam, you not only need to bring a pencil, eraser and other stationery, but also you need to print the admission ticket and take it to the exam arena. If you do not bring the admission ticket, you will need to fill in a form after the exam.
3. If you partake in the computer-based exam, there is no need to arrive early
A candidate can start their exams immediately once they have inputted their identification number. However, it is highly recommended that the candidate arrive early for the paper-based exam, as the paper-based exam requires candidates to manually fill their application code, centre number by blackening boxes. If a candidate is quick in doing form filling related things, he/she may be able to complete the exam paper filling process in a minute, but normally, the form filling process will take several minutes to complete. If you do not arrive early, you need to sacrifice the time of the exam to do the form filling. If the form filling process is not done by the time you submit the exam, the examiner will not give you time to fill in the basic information.
4. When taking the computer-based exam, candidates can use electronic functions to bookmark the questions
When taking the computer based exam, the computer system has a function that allows candidates to bookmark questions they want to review. You are able to bookmark which questions or number of questions; which allows you to view your process at a glance. For the paper-based exam, candidates can only bring their own highlighters and stationery to make their own marks manually. With that said, there is a chance that a candidate might miss some marking.
