Official Results

*As of July 2023, IELTS General Training test-takers now receive only 1 printed TRF. General Training test-takers will no longer receive a second copy of the paper TRF to submit to IRCC by mail. As of July 2023, IRCC now has online access to verify test results. 

  • All TRFs are sent by mail. (Canada Post, regular untracked.) Delivery takes approximately 10 business days.
  • If you take your test in the Lower Mainland, you can request pick-up from our Vancouver head office by emailing us before your test.

You receive at least 1 copy of your printed Test Report Form (TRF) included in your test fee.

  • Maximum of 2 additional copies can be requested

Method 1: Include the organizations in your test application

When you register for an IELTS test, you can include organizations in your booking.

  • Your results will be sent to these organizations on Results Day.
  • There is no additional fee because this process is automatic.

Method 2: Submit your scores after your results are released

If you did NOT include an organization in your booking, you can add it later.

  • We cannot send scores to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).  General Training test-takers will no longer receive a second copy of the paper TRF to submit to IRCC by mail. As of July 2023, IRCC now has online access to verify test results. 
  • We can submit scores to any academic or professional organization in the world. Most will not accept scores directly from the applicant.

How do we send your scores?

  • Electronic: By default.  If your institution is registered as a Recognizing Organization (RO) to receive electronic results, we will use this option.  Estimated delivery time is 24 hours, excluding processing time.
  • By mail: If an institution or department does not accept electronic results, Test Report Forms are mailed in a sealed and stamped envelope.  Allow additional time for delivery.  Courier service is available for US and international deliveries.  Estimated delivery time is 7-21 days, excluding processing time.

You don’t need to inform us how to send your scores.  We will follow the latest information from your institution.  If you have a deadline, contact us to discuss your timeline.

If you believe your score doesn’t reflect your performance, you can request a remark on any part of your test.  Remarks are known as an Enquiry on Results (EOR).  

Click here to request an Enquiry on Results.

Cost: $260 plus tax.  This fee is refunded if your score changes.

Deadline for submitting EOR request: Up to 6 weeks after your test date.

How it works: Remarks are carried out by a senior examiner.  Remarks are independent and unbiased, meaning the examiner will not see your original score.

How long it takes: Between 2 to 6 weeks.  In some cases, an EOR can take 1 week or less if it’s an off-peak season or you only request a remark on one section. (Note: the cost is the same).

What happens after remarking: We will contact you when the re-mark is complete.  If at least one of your scores increases, we will provide a refund and a new Test Report Form.

We cannot provide individual feedback on how your scores were decided.  However, check the information here to learn more about IELTS scoring.

If you need your TRF number and date: This information is printed on your paper Test Report Form only.  Your TRF number may also be found on the online preview of your results.
