For IELTS UKVI results, log in here using the username and password you registered with.
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 ?
A paper copy of your test score, the Test Report Form (TRF) will be available 13 days after the test date for a paper-based test, and 3 to 5 days after a computer-delivered test. Please allow at least seven working days for the delivery.
You can collect it from the British Council centre or have it delivered by courier.
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.
If the addresses of the institutions were entered incorrectly when you registered you can change them by submitting an IELTS Extra Test Report Form (TRF) Request (PDF, 42KB).
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 150 lei per copy. 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, fill in the Application for Additional Test Report Form (PDF, 42KB) and send it to us either by e-mail, at email@example.com, or at our Bucharest main centre. We will then send the Test Report Form directly to the institution.
Please note that an additional Test Report Form takes around 5 working days to be processed.
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.
How long are my IELTS results valid for?
Whether you have taken paper-based or computer-delivered IELTS, organisations will usually not accept your results if they are more than two years old, unless you provide evidence that you have actively maintained or tried to improve your English since taking the test. The IELTS Partners cannot confirm the validity of test results that are more than two years old.
How can I get my IELTS test re-marked?
If you did not receive the score you expected, you can apply for your test to be re-marked. This is called an Enquiry on Results (EOR). You can choose which test sections you want to be re-marked and will need to request this at the test centre where you sat the test.
The fee for this service (regardless of the number of corrected modules) is 650 Ron and can be paid by bank transfer with the following details:
British Council Citibank Europe plc - Dublin Romania branch (Calea Victoriei, no. 145, Bucharest)
Account number (IBAN): RO88 CITI 0000 0008 2601 2196
C.U.I. / C.F .: 9000 0000 26598 / 22.02.91
Please include ‘IELTS EOR’ and the full name of the candidate in the payment details.
The fee will be refunded in full if your score is increased for any test sample.
You need to apply for a re-marking no later than six weeks after the test date, regardless of whether you have taken computer-delivered or paper-based IELTS.
Download the Enquiry on Results Form from the Downloads section below and submit it with all the required details by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you attach of the proof of payment. If your result is changed, you will be required to return your previously issued Test Report Form, before a new one can be issued.
Your result will normally be available in 2 to 21 days, depending on several factors including the number of sections requested for remark. If you have not received a response after 28 days, please contact us.
Can I re-take my IELTS test?
There are no restrictions on re-taking IELTS. You can book a test as soon as you feel you are ready to do so.
Please note that your score is unlikely to increase unless you make a significant effort to improve your English before re-taking the test. Visit the preparation section to take a practice test and assess your level.
