IELTS Test Report Form (TRF)
The Test Report Form (TRF) will be printed and sent out by postal mail 13 days after the test day. You can collect your TRF at IELTS Official Test Centre when your results are released. You need to notify us by email or phone before you come to the office and bring your passport you used to register for the test in order to pick up your TRF –no one may pick up your results on your behalf. If 13th day is national holyday, all results are sent out by postal mail the day before. Contact your IELTS Official Test Centre for more information. The candidate will receive ONE original Test Report Form. This is a very valuable document and it is recommended that you take care in keeping your TRF secure. Replacement TRFs cannot be issued. You will only receive one copy of your Test Report Form, unless you are applying to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), or United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) – in these cases, you can receive two. Proof of application to CIC and UKBA must be provided. Test Report Forms are valid for two years. Contact IELTS Official Test Centre for more information.
You can also preview your IELTS results online. In order to access your scores online you will need to enter your Full Name, Date of Birth, and your Registered ID (Passport or National Identity Number).
Send your TRF to institutions
You may request up to five 5 additional copies of TRF to be sent to Receiving Institutions (academic institutions/government agencies/professional bodies, etc.) within 2 years after TRFs are issued for free of charge. More than 5 TRFs are subject to an extra fee (1,100JPY for each TRF). These are sent directly to the Receiving Organizations of your choice. If you would like TRFs sent by registered mail, please notify IELTS Official Test Centre by Email- you will be charged 2,500JPY for each TRF. If the Receiving Institution accepts electronic submission of scores, then that can be sent electronically. Contact IELTS Official Test Centre for more information.
