Need help?

If you have any questions about your TRF or previewing your results online contact your IELTS test centre.

Getting your results

Test Report Form

IELTS test results are released 13 calendar days after you sit the test. Test centres will post your Test Report Form to you 13 days after the test or have it ready for you to pick up in person (depending on the arrangement with your test centre).

Please note that you will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) – in which case, you can receive two.

When booking your test you have the opportunity to nominate up to five universities, employers or other organisations to which copies of your IELTS test results will be sent. Results will be sent to your nominated organisations automatically on your behalf. You can also request your test centre to send additional copies for a small administration fee.

Please note that if you are a test taker and want to send your results to an organisation, you should contact the test centre where you took the test.

Preview your results online

You can preview your results online 13 calendar days after the test. Results remain online for 28 days. Please note that the online preview of results should not be used as an official confirmation of your performance.

Which link should I use?

Your IELTS test centre will provide you with the correct link to preview your results online, but if you’re not sure, choose from these options:

If you are unsure, or cannot access your results online, please contact the centre where you took the test.

What information do I need to access my results?

  1. Your passport/ID number – this must be the same as the number you used when you registered for the IELTS test.
  2. Your candidate number – your test centre will have sent you this number when you registered and you will also have received it on test day.
  3. You must write your name exactly as it was written when you registered (as it appears on the form of ID you used to register).

If you're not sure about any of the information listed above, please contact your test centre.

What if my centre is closed?

If your centre has been closed, you could still request your IELTS result to be sent to receiving organisations (e.g. immigration authority, institutions, universities etc) by filling the Application for additional TRFs (from closed centres) form.

Please note: You can only apply for this service up to 2 years after the date of your IELTS test.
