Test report forms

You will receive only one copy of your Test Report Form (TRF).

IELTS will send a copy of your TRF to up to five (5) institutions or organizations free of charge if you state these when you register.


If you want a TRF to be sent to an institution after you have taken the test, the center will charge a fee. These fees are set by the institution.

The report form is a very valuable document and it is recommended that you keep it safe and secure because it can not be replaced. 


The IELTS TRF includes:

  • - your score, on a Band Scale from 1 to 9, for each component of the test
  • - your overall Band Score, on a scale from 1 to 9

  • - whether you have completed IELTS Academic or General Training

    - your candidate photo and details of your nationality, first language and date of birth.


(Please note: this form is ONLY for those who sat their test at a USA test centre.)

Important note

Please note:

  • - there is no pass or fail mark
    - all modules are now reported in half bands
  • - the results are recommended as valid for two years.

The TRF, in giving a Band Score for each of the four components of the test as well as an overall Band Score, allows receiving institutions to clearly identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Marking at the test centre ensures that test results are available without any administrative delay.

A valid Test Report Form bears a centre stamp, candidate photo, a validation stamp and the IELTS administrator's signature. Test Report Forms are sent directly from the test centre to the receiving institution or organisation. Photocopies will not be accepted.

Test Report Forms will not be issued for tests taken more than two years ago.
