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 correctly reflects your performance. 

You can expect your IELTS result to be available 13 calendar days after your test.


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

Your IELTS results (also known as your Test Report Form) will be posted to you 13 days after the date of the main test day.

You will not be able to obtain your results over the phone, by email or by fax. 


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.

Additional TRFs are available to any institution upon request. Note that this will incur a fee of Rs. 500 per TRF, and is only available up to two years after the date of registration. If a courier service is required this may also incur additional costs.

If the addresses of the institutions were entered incorrectly when you registered you can change them by contacting us.

Institutions need original copies of your Test Report Form. Photocopies of your Test Report Form will not be accepted.

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.

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

It is unusual for there to be a mistake in the marking. However, if you believe a mistake has occurred you can fill out IELTS Enquiry on Results Form 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 remarked.

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.


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.
