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 submitt “Application for Additional Test Report Form”. In case they do not access this service, we will send your TRF by post and additionnal postal fees will be required.
We will then send the TRF directly to the institution. Please note that an additional Test Report Form takes around 5 days to be processed.
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 MAD 200 per copy and an additional courier fee to send it via airmail or to international destinations. This process applies to both paper-based and computer-delivered IELTS.
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 is 60 GBP for IELTS regular, 75 GBP for IELTS life skills and 100 GBP for IELTS UKVI, which will be refunded if your score is increased for any section of the test.
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 download section below and submit it to the test centre where you sat the test. Make sure you attach your Test Report Form and proof of payment.
Enquiries on Results take four to eight weeks to complete.
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.
