Before your students take their test, they may be interested in knowing when and how they can obtain their scores.

Can I request my students' scores?

No - scores are sent directly to test takers or their chosen institution(s).

When are results available?

Test takers will be able to view results online 13 days after the test date. They can do this on the test taker portal.

If they have taken IELTS on computer, results will be available 3-5 days after the test.

One original copy of the Test Report Form (TRF) will be sent to each test taker’s address 13 days after test day.

Learners can request up to five extra TRFs for free by contacting their test centre. This must be requested by test takers when registering for IELTS.

Test re-marking

If your student did not receive the score they expected, they can apply for their test to be re-marked. This is called an Enquiry on Results. They will need to request this at the test centre where they sat the test.

  • When: Within 6 weeks of the test date.
  • Fee: Students should contact their local test centre for fee information.
  • Timeframe: The review will take 2-4 weeks to process.
