Information for candidates who have taken IELTS
After taking IELTS, you will receive one copy of your Test Report form (TRF).
As stated in the Notice to Candidates on the IELTS Application form, replacement copies are not issued in the event of loss or damage.
However, your result can be sent to recognising organisations. You will need to contact the centre where you took your test. Your centre should be able to help you as long as your test was taken less than two years ago. After two years, it is not possible to send results to recognising organisations. Your centre may charge you an administration fee for this service.
Candidates who wish to use their IELTS result for immigration purposes
If you wish to use your IELTS test result to apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) or United Kingdom Visa and Immigration (UKVI) you can request one additional copy of your TRF from your centre (two in total). Proof of your application to CIC or UKVI will need to be provided.
If the IELTS test centre where you took your test has closed
If your test centre is closed it is still possible to send a copy of your TRF to recognising organisations for up to two years after the test was taken. For information on how to request this service, please see this page of our website.
