We understand that getting your results is important to you. We know you want them quickly, but it is equally important that we give you the score that reflects your performance.
You can expect your IELTS results to be available 13 calendar days after your test.
IELTS results online, by post and collection
You can preview your results online from 12.00 midday on the 13th day after the date of the written tests.
Your IELTS results (also known as your Test Report Form) will be posted to you 13 days after the main test day.
You cannot obtain your results over the phone, by email or by fax.
Test Report Form (TRF)
You will receive one copy of the Test Report Form. The Test Report Form has an inbuilt security system and therefore cannot be copied.
Additional Test Report Forms (TRFs) for institutions
For a period of two years after taking the test, you can apply for up to five free copies to be sent directly to an institution 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.
Enquiry on Results (EOR)
If you are dissatisfied with your score, you can apply to our Enquiry on Results Service to have your test re-marked. This must be done within six weeks of the test date. You can choose which modules are re-marked. There is a fee for this service, which will be refunded should the score on any module change. Enquiry on Results can take up to eight-ten weeks to complete.

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.
