IELTS Test Results

Your IELTS test results are available 13 days after your test date. You can either view your IELTS results online or contact your test centre.

The IELTS Scoring System

There is no pass or fail in IELTS. Scores are graded on the 9-band system. Each educational university or school sets its own minimum IELTS scores to meet its individual requirements.

IELTS test results for all sections are provided separately. Mostly, an average of 6.5, with a band score above or equal to 6 in each of the 4 sections, is welcomed in most universities and schools.

Test Report Form (TRF)


A copy of your IELTS result is known as the Test Report Form (TRF). Each candidate is issued only one IELTS test report form, which is valid for two years. You will only receive one copy of your TRF, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), or the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) – in this case, you can receive two. Proof of application to CIC and UKBA must be provided.

Up to five copies of your ATRF will be posted to the relevant institution(s) you have listed on your IELTS application form. Regular postage is free of charge. Charges for courier services and/or overseas postage will be passed onto you.

Additional Test Report Form (ATRF): Sending the TRF to Universities and Visa Offices

Additional TRFs beyond the first five TRFs can be requested from the test centre which issued the results. Please note, an administration fee may be charged for additional TRFs. If you have lost your TRF, please contact the test centre which issued your results.

Universities and schools, which are subscribed to receive the IELTS scores, do not require original copies of TRFs. They can directly view your scores online.

Enquiry on Results (EOR)

You can apply for a re-mark, known as an Enquiry on Results (EOR), at your test centre within six weeks of the test date. You must pay an enquiry fee, which will be fully refunded if your band score changes. The review request is separately made for the different sections of the exam, directly from the website. Re-evaluation result may take up to ten days. Note that IELTS Examiners and markers follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored. The IELTS testing process has the highest quality control procedures.

Re-sitting the Test

There are no restrictions on re-taking IELTS. However, we strongly recommend you do additional study before taking the test again. Test seekers are welcome to use the free IELTS practice materials on our website, www.ieltsessentials.com. Ask your IDP counsellor adviser or contact your local test centre for more information.
