When will I get my IELTS results?
You won’t have to wait long for your IELTS test results.
You can preview your results on the Test Taker Portal. Depending on which IELTS test you have taken, you will get your results as shown below:
|IELTS on paper||13 days|
|IELTS on computer||3-5 days|
|IELTS Online||Within 6 days|
|IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration on paper||13 days|
|IELTS Life Skills||7 days|
IELTS Results remain online for 28 days but should not be used as an official confirmation of your performance.
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?
You can collect your Test Report Form from our office in Kyiv on the 13th day after the date of the written part of IELTS on paper or on the third to fifth day after IELTS on computer (please be advised that during the quarantine period our office is closed to the public). If you live in another city, the certificate will be sent to you by post.
If you have taken IELTS Online, you will receive your results electronically only, but you can print your electronic Test Result Form to send it to the organisations you are applying to.
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 (not applicable to IELTS Online)
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 on the Test taker portal within two years of taking the 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.
Can I get additional copies of my IELTS results?
If your test centre has been closed, you can order additional test report forms from ielts.org.
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?
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 2300 UAH, 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.
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:
- Proof of payment
- Ukrainian passport copy – first 2 openings (or national ID copy for foreigners)
- Individual Taxpayer Identification Number copy
- Original hand-written refund request in Ukrainian (download below)
Your Enquiry on Results 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 21 days, please contact your test centre.
For submitting your EOR please send the hard copies of your documents to our office in Kiev at 29 Zhylianska St, Kyiv, 01033 and duplicate them to our email address email@example.com. Please make your payment using the same bank details that you used for your IELTS test payment.
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.
