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)

If you did not receive the score you expected, you can apply for your test to be re-marked. This is called an Enquiry on Results (EOR). You can choose which test sections you want to be re-marked and will need to request this at the test centre where you sat the test.

There is a fee for the Enquiry on Results service, which will be refunded if your score is increased for any section of the test. Updated rates below:

  • PhP 5,250 for the IELTS test
  • PhP 7,100 for the IELTS for UKVI test
  • PhP 5,300 for the IELTS Life Skills test

You need to apply for a re-marking no later than six weeks after the test date, regardless if you have taken IELTS on Paper or IELTS on Computer.

For regular IELTS, you need to submit an Enquiry on Results online from the Test Taker Portal.

If you have enquiry on your IELTS for UKVI test result, you can submit an EOR (Enquiry on Results) request through this link and pay the UKVI EOR fee online. We will review your request and process it by following the UKVI EOR procedure and policies.

The outcome of your Enquiry of Result (EOR) can become available on the same day as your application up to 21 days after it is submitted. The turnaround time of your application will depend on several factors, including the time of application and the number of sections requested for remark.

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.


What is IELTS One Skill Retake, and how does it work?

IELTS One Skill Retake is a new feature designed to help you get your desired test score without retaking the full test. If you want to improve your score on one test skill, you can retake any of the four IELTS skills – Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking. 

IELTS One Skill Retake is now available with the British Council in Philippines. It will further be available worldwide in selected British Council test locations from late 2023.
