Processing and verifying IELTS results

Secure, online access to results for organisations

Verify that results are genuine

The IELTS Results Verification Service enables organisations to check, securely and free of charge, whether test takers are presenting genuine results. 

Organisations can also opt to download results, instead of receiving hard copies of individual Test Report Forms.

How does it work?

Option 1: Verify individual IELTS Test Report Forms

The free, secure IELTS Results Verification Service allows organisations to quickly verify that an applicant is presenting a genuine Test Report Form by checking that the results you receive match the results held on the IELTS database.

Once you have registered for the IELTS Results Verification Service, you may then opt in to download IELTS results electronically instead of receiving hard copies of results.

Option 2: Securely download results electronically*

The IELTS download service allows registered organisations to securely download verified IELTS results for all test takers who have applied to their organisation. This means:

  • you can feel confident that results are genuine as they will be securely transferred direct from official IELTS systems to your data system
  • you will save time by downloading results in bulk, at a time that's convenient for you
  • test takers will no longer need to present paper Test Report Forms.

Results can be downloaded in either .XML or .CSV format.

*Please note that if you opt into the secure batch downloads service, hard copy Test Report Forms will no longer be posted to your institution.

I was able to log in, download the scores and forward them to our admissions team. This has really helped us speed up the application process. Love it!

As part of our assessment processes all IELTS reports are verified using the online IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) Verification site. Access to this site has enabled us to ensure that the IELTS results we receive are genuine. Recently, we immediately refused, without further processing, two applications where the TRF verification website identified the IELTS report as fraudulent. The website is very user-friendly and I would recommend it to anyone who assesses English ability using IELTS.
