Information for organizations who accept IELTS test scores
In locations where it is permitted to do so, IELTS testing is going ahead, with additional precautions in place to help protect the health and safety of our test takers and the teams in our centers.
In other locations, we have had to suspend IELTS testing, in line with official requirements and the guidance of healthcare authorities. In these locations, we are putting detailed plans in place to ensure that test takers are able to take their tests as soon as possible once the official restrictions are removed.
Unfortunately, many test takers in these locations will be delayed in sitting a test and subsequently sending their IELTS scores to institutions. We fully understand the impact that this may have on our test takers and on your organization, and we are doing everything we can to minimize this impact.
As a temporary measure, due to the Covid-19 situation, test takers may only be issued with their Test Report Form (TRF) number, and their IELTS for UKVI number, where appropriate, for test dates from March 2020, and until further notice. Test takers may share this with organizations of their choice, when a paper TRF cannot be issued.
Organizations can log into the IELTS Results Verification Service and use the TRF number to confirm IELTS results. If you are not currently registered for this complimentary service, please register using the links below:

Our goal is to continue to support you as you receive and process IELTS results during these challenging times. Once test centers have reopened, we will be able to provide Test Report Forms via postal delivery.
