For paper-based tests.
Your results will be released exactly 13 days after your paper-based test.
After your results are released, you will:
- be able to check your results online
- have a copy of your Test Report Form mailed* to you
*Test takers in Vancouver will have the option to pick their results up from our downtown head office.
Your Official Test Report Form:
You will receive 1 free printed copy of your Test Report Form (TRF). Digital downloads are not available for paper tests.
Allow at least 14 days for your TRF to arrive by mail after your results are released. Undelivered TRFs must be reported to us within 3 months to get a free replacement.
Find out more about checking and receiving your test results and declaring undelivered results.
You will receive 1 printed copy of your Test Report Form (TRF) free after your test results are released.
If you later need another copy, click here to request one.
- $30.00 (+ tax) per copy
- A maximum of 2 additional copies can be requested
You can only request a replacement up to 2 years (730 days) after your original test date.
Note: If you later plan to use your IELTS results for another application, such as Citizenship, make sure to keep your original TRF in a safe place or request a new one before the 2-year expiry window.
We can send your IELTS results directly to a university, college, regulatory body and some professional organizations.
Option 1: When you book the test
- Include the names of the institutions on your test booking details.
- When your results are released, we will automatically send your results to those institutions.
- We will always send an e-TRF if possible. However, some universities/colleges will not accept e-TRFs from test centres. If yours doesn’t, we will need to mail a copy to them.
- There is no cost for Option 1.
If you didn’t do Option 1 when you booked a test, you can use Option 2.
Option 2: After your results are released
- Request to send your results to institutions after your results are released.
- The fee is $30 + tax for each institution.
- Place your request here.
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).
Cost: $260 plus tax. This fee is refunded if your score changes. There is no refund for unchanged scores. The cost is the same no matter how many sections you include in the remark request.
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: Usually between 2 and 21 days. In rare cases, remarks may take a little longer.
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.

We cannot issue digital copies of the TRF by email.
