Results for US test takers

Results for IELTS on paper are available 13 days after you take the test. Results for IELTS on computer are available after three to five days.

The IELTS USA test center will also send a copy of your test results to up to five institutions or organizations for free. Please note, there may be an administrative fee if results need to be sent to institutions outside of the United States. Or for results requested 30 days after your test date.

You will also receive one personal copy of your Test Report Form (TRF) by postal mail. Please make sure you enter your mailing address correctly so your results are  sent to the right address. The TRF will only be replaced if it’s lost or damaged. 

To get a copy of your TRF, you will need to contact the test center where you took the test, and submit a request in writing. You will also need to provide a copy of the ID document you used on test day.

Scores can be previewed online for a limited time after they are released by logging into the IELTS USA online registration system test taker account. Note, provisional IELTS results may not be used as an official IELTS Test Report Form, which will be issued by postal mail.
