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 for Paper-based IELTS and 3-5 calendar days after your test for Computer-delivered IELTS.
IELTS results online and by post
You will be able to preview your results online from 13:00 hr. onwards on the 13th day after the main test day.
Test Report Form (TRF)
You will receive one copy of the TRF. Unfortunately, replacements cannot be issued if you lose it.
Additional Test Report Forms (TRFs) for institutions
We can also arrange for additional original copies (up to a maximum of five) to be posted to receiving institutions (e.g. universities, immigration officers, etc.). If you would like us to do this, please include the relevant addresses when you register.
Institutions need original copies of your TRF. Photocopies of your TRF will not be accepted. If you want us to produce and send another institutional copy of your TRF, you will be asked to pay an administration fee of 500 Baht per copy plus an extra courier fee if you require. We will mail your copy to the recipient directly, therefore, you need to provide the institutions’ address and fill in the "Extra TRF request form" at the Registration Point. Please note that we are unable to issue TRF of test result beyond two years.
Institutions may be able to view candidates’ scores through the IELTS TRF Verification Service. To do this they will need your TRF 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.

There is a fee for the Enquiry on Results service, 4,000 THB, 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.

Can I re-take the test?
You can take the test as many times as you wish. However, to significantly improve your score you will need to undertake further study. Research by IELTS indicates that scores are unlikely to improve without further English language tuition.
