Results

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’ll be able to preview your results online from 10.00, 13 days after the main test day.

Your IELTS results (also known as your Test Report Form) will be available at British Council offices 13 days after the date of the main test day. You may also request for your results to be sent to you by courier and a fee will be charged.

You will not be able to 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. Unfortunately, replacements cannot be issued if you lose it.

 

Additional Test Report Forms (TRFs) for institutions

Requests for additional TRFs can be made and it is chargeable at MMK 10,000 per TRF

Institutions may be able to view candidates’ scores through the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) Verification Service. To do this they will need your Test Report Form number which can be found in the bottom right corner of your Test Report Form.

 

Validity period of Test Report Form

Institutions will not usually accept a Test Report Form that is more than two years old. After this time you will need to provide them with evidence that you have maintained or improved your English since taking the test.

 

Enquiry on Results (EOR)

It is unusual for there to be a mistake in the marking. However, if you believe a mistake has occurred 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 sections of the test you want to have re-marked.

There is a fee for the Enquiry on Results service, which will be refunded should your overall score change as a result of the re-marking. The Enquiry on Results Service can take up to eight weeks to complete. Please contact us for further information about how the service works.

 

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 without further English language tuition.
