Your IELTS test result (known as an IELTS Test Report Form) is valid for 2 years from the date of your test. Additional IELTS Test Report Forms can only be requested from the centre with which you wrote the IELTS test. You will receive only one (1) official copy of your results for your personal records. The test centre is not permitted to issue a replacement copy in the event of loss or damage, so please keep your personal copy in a safe place.

Receiving Your IELTS Test Report Form
Test results are available to candidates 13 calendar days after the exam. Official Test Report Forms must be sent by mail, or picked up in person at the Test Centre (180 Bloor Street West, 2nd floor) on the 13th day ONLY between 1:00pm and 4:00pm. If you choose to pick up your results, you must bring the original ID that you used on the test day (passport or Canadian PR card) – no substitutions will be accepted, and no one may pick up your results on your behalf. Any results not picked up by 4:00pm on the pickup day will be posted to the candidate’s home address by Canada post regular mail. Delivery by courier is available at an extra cost.
Candidates cannot receive their official results by phone or by email. Candidates cannot pick up their results after the 13th day.
Previewing Your IELTS Results Online
Unofficial results may be previewed online at https://results.ielts.org. They are typically available on the 13th day after your test. To view your results, you must enter all of your information exactly as it appeared your test day, including your middle name(s) if applicable. Please note that these results are NOT to be used for official purposes, and that all Institutions and Agencies require original Test Report Forms.
Sending Your Results – Before Application
On page 3 of the application form, you may request to have your results sent to institutions (immigration, universities, agencies, professional bodies). Up to five (5) institutions listed on this page will be sent by regular post for free, no postage will be charged. If you wish to send your results to more than five institutions, please see below. Faster delivery by courier may be requested at an additional fee.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the addresses you provide are complete and correct. Test Report Formsmay not be sent to friends/family, migration agents, or education agents – they will only be sent to organizations authorized to receive IELTS results.
If you require a copy of your IELTS results for immigration purposes, please list this on page 3 of the application, citing “FOR IMMIGRATION”. You will receive two copies of your results to your home address, one for your personal records and the other for your immigration application. You will not be charged a fee if you cite this on the application form.
Sending Your Results – After Application
If you would like a copy of your Test Report Form sent to an institution after your application form has been submitted (or if you wish to include more than 5 institutions with your application form), there are two forms you must download and fill out:
The first form tells us where you would like your results to be sent, and the second is for payment by credit card. You may send these two forms to us by fax at 416-968-6667, or you can scan the pages and email the images to us at email@example.com.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the addresses you provide are complete and correct. Test Report Forms may not be sent to friends/family, migration agents, or education agents – they will only be sent to IELTS Recognised Organisations.
If you require a copy of your IELTS results for immigration purposes, please cite “FOR IMMIGRATION” on your request form. This immigration copy will be mailed to your home address.
All additional Test Report Forms requested after application, at any time and for any purpose, will be subject to administrative fee, but no postage will be charged. Requests received before February 2, 2015 will be charged $15 CDN (HST included) per copy, while requests received on or after February 15 will be charged $20 CDN (HST included) per copy. Faster delivery by courier may be requested at an additional fee.
If you require a copy of your IELTS results for immigration purposes, it will be sent to your home address. We are not able to send your results to migration agents or Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
If you have not yet applied for a test, you may request your immigration copy by citing “FOR IMMIGRATION” on page 3 of your application form. You will receive two copies of your results to your home address, one for your personal records and the other for your immigration application. You will not be charged a fee if you cite this on the application form.
If you have already registered for a test, or if you have already written the test, you may request your immigration copy by citing “FOR IMMIGRATION” on the Application for the Issue of Additional TRFs. The $15 CDN (HST included) administrative fee ($20 if request received on or after February 2, 2015) will apply, please fill out the Credit Card Authorization Form to make this payment. You may send these two forms to us by fax at 416-968-6667, or you can scan the pages and email the images to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancelling Institutions on Application
If you have requested that your results be sent to institutions on page 3 of your application form, but no longer want those results to be sent, please send us an email at email@example.com. In the email, please tell us your full name, your test date and location, and which institutions you would like to cancel. There is no charge to cancel an institution, but if you decide later that you do want to send your results, a new request will have to be made and the $15 administrative fee ($20 if request received on or after February 2, 2015) per institution will apply.
The deadline for cancelling institutions requested on your application form is 5 business days after your test. If your request is received after this time, we will not be able to cancel your institutions.
If you feel that the marks you have received are unjust, you may request a re-mark. This process is known as an Enquiry on Results. Candidates wishing to request a re-mark of their results must complete the Enquiry on Results form and forward it along with their original Test Report Form* and payment to the IELTS Administrator at their test centre, either in person or by mail. All re-mark requests must be made within six weeks of the test date. The re-mark fee is $160.00 CDN, HST included. The full fee will be refunded by the candidate’s test centre if a result is changed to a higher band score. The re-marking process takes at least 6 weeks, after which your results will be posted to your home address by Canada Post regular mail.
*NOTE: If you received an additional copy of your test results for immigration purposes, both copies must be submitted with your re-mark request.
