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 BDT 8,000, 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.

Regular IELTS: You can submit an Enquiry on Results online from the Test Taker Portal . Make sure you attach your Test Report Form and proof of payment.

UKVI IELTS: Please fill in the online form  to apply for Enquiry on Results. After submitting the form you will receive an automated email with payment instructions to complete the application. 

Your result will normally be available in two to 21 days, depending on several factors including the number of sections requested for remarking. If you have not received a response after 28 days, please contact your test centre.

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. Take our free IELTS preparation test to practice and assess your level.
