This is a test where the computer selects questions for you according to how well you have answered previous questions. In other words, the questions adapt to the level of the candidate.
The computer test includes a large bank of test questions, covering all levels of ability, from basic to advanced. The questions are displayed on-screen, and candidates respond using the keyboard and mouse. As each question is answered, the computer assesses the response and selects the next question.
The questions are selected according to whether the candidate's previous answer was right or wrong; in this way, the questions become progressively easier or harder until the system has a reliable assessment of the candidate's level.

Candidates can be given extra time for the BULATS Online tests at the discretion of the testing organisation. In this case the time limit option within the Supervisor mode should not be selected.

For candidates with a hearing impairment, there are special and lip-reading versions of the Listening section of the Standard test, and for candidates with a visual impairment there are large-print and Braille versions of the Standard test.
These can be ordered six weeks in advance of the test date.
