Test Report Form


Your Test Report Form will be posted to you 13 days after the test. All test centres will post your Test Report Form to you.


You will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), or United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI) – in these cases, you can receive two. Proof of application to CIC and UKVI must be provided.


You can have copies of your Test Report Form automatically sent to five institutions free of charge. This helps streamline your application processes. Additional copies will incur a small administration charge.


Your Test Report Form is a valuable document and you should keep it safe and secure because it cannot be replaced.


It includes:


  • • your score, on a Band Scale from 1 to 9, for each section of the test (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking)
  • •  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.


Test Report Forms are valid for a recommended period of two years. They have inbuilt security measures and cannot be copied. Receiving institutions can also access a database to double-check your results.
