If you have taken the IELTS on paper test, you will be able to preview your results on Test Taker Portal after 13 days from the test date. If you have taken the IELTS on computer test, you will be able to preview your result online after 3 to 5 days from the test date. 

We will send out a paper copy of your IELTS test score, the Test Report Form(TRF), via mail delivery 13 days after the test date for IELTS on paper tests and 3 to 5 days after IELTS on computer tests.

Additional Test Report Forms (ATRFs) for institutions

For a period of two years after taking the test, you can send your results directly to the institutions requiring them. 

Additional original copies can be posted to receiving institutions (e.g. universities, immigration officers, etc.); please include the relevant addresses when you register

Institutions can also view candidates’ scores through the IELTS Test Report Form Verification Service, provided that they have the candidate’s Test Report Form number.


Validity period of Test Report Form

Institutions will not usually accept a Test Report Form that is more than two years old, unless you provide evidence that you have maintained or improved your English since taking the test.

Understand your IELTS scores

IELTS provides results for all levels of English: there is no such thing as a pass or fail. You will be given a score from zero to nine for each part of the test – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking

Can I re-take the test?

You can take the test as many times as you wish. However, please note that to significantly improve your score it is necessary to undertake further study. IELTS research indicates that scores are unlikely to improve dramatically without extensive English language tuition in the interim.
