When will I get my IELTS results?
You won’t have to wait long for your IELTS test results.
You can log in to the Test Taker Portal to preview your results. IELTS Results remain online for 28 days but should not be used as an official confirmation of your performance.
If you have taken the computer-delivered test, you will be able to preview your results after 3 to 5 calendar days from the test date. Check your results on the Test Taker Portal.
Please note that if you have taken IELTS for UKVI, the results cannot be viewed online.
If you have taken the paper-based test, you will be able to preview your results after 13 calendar days from the test date.
If you lose your Test Report Form or forget your test results, please contact your test centre.
When will I get a physical copy of my result?
We will send out a paper copy of your IELTS test score, the Test Report Form (TRF), via mail delivery 13 days after the test date for a paper-based test and 3 to 5 days after a computer-delivered test.
IELTS results will not be disclosed over the phone or through email.
We’ll send your Test Report Form (TRF) directly to the institutions you’re applying to whether you have taken a computer-delivered or a paper-based test.
Institutions need original copies of your Test Report Form. Photocopies will not be accepted.
We can send up to five additional copies of your TRF directly to institutions you are applying to (for instance universities, immigration officers, etc.). If you would like us to do this, please include the relevant addresses when you book your test.
Please do not forget to give the full postal address of the institution. Without the complete address, we are not able to check whether the institution has access to the IELTS Test Report Form Verification Service that allows it to view your results after we have submitted them electronically. In case they do not access this service, we will send your TRF by post.
Institutions may be able to view your score through the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) Verification Service. To do this, they will need your Test Report Form number which can be found in the bottom right corner of your Test Report Form.
Can I get additional copies of my IELTS results?
If you want us to send another copy of your TRF to a recognising organisation in addition to the five copies we provide, you will need to pay an administration fee of 20 NIS per copy to send it via airmail or 150 NIS per copy to send to international destinations via courier. This process applies to both paper-based and computer-delivered IELTS.
If your test centre has been closed, you can order additional test report forms from ielts.org.
You will need to provide the institution’s address and fill in the “Application for Additional Test Report Form”. Bring to our offices or email a photocopy of your IELTS test result and passport to the application form. We will then send the TRF directly to the institution.
Please note that an additional Test Report Form takes around 3 working days to be processed.
To request additional copies, download the Additional Copies Form from the download section below.
What does my IELTS score mean?
You will be awarded an IELTS band score from 0-9 for each test section, which reflects your proficiency in English.
Your TRF shows a score for each of the four skills (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking), as well as an overall band score. You can score whole band scores (for example 5.0, 6.0, 7.0) or half band scores (e.g. 5.5, 6.5, 7.5) in each section of the test.
