Test Report Form (TRF)

View unofficial results

Test takers will be able to view unofficial results online within 2-5 business days after the computer-based test and on the 13th day after the paper-based test. Your TRF number is available on both the Test Report Form you receive and through the unofficial online result at the bottom of the page.

Please note that these are not to be used for official purposes, and that all institutions or agencies require official Test Report Forms.

Official results

On the 13th day after your paper-based test and within 2-5 business days after your computer-based test, official results will be sent via regular mail or courier. We strongly encourage you choose the courier option as regular post cannot be tracked and may take up to 3 weeks for delivery.

IELTS on Computer test takers can download an unlimited number of their Test Report Form within two years of their test date.

All academic test takers will receive ONLY ONE original Test Result Form for their own copy. This is a very valuable document and should be stored in a secure location. Please do NOT send your personal copy to institutions or agencies. You will not receive a second personal copy. Please see Additional Test Report Form requests below.

General Training test takers will receive one original Test Report Form.

Test Centres are NOT permitted to give test results over the telephone, via fax or e-mail to either the test taker or the receiving institutions. If you do not attend all four sections of the IELTS test, you will not receive a test result.

Test Report Form is valid for 2 years from the test day.

General Training (GT) candidates

It is no longer a requirement to provide a hard copy of the TRF to IRCC for immigration purposes. IRCC has access to the IELTS Results Service in order to verify test taker results via the TRF number.

There could be a few rare instances where paper TRFs are required for investigation purposes. In such cases, the test taker must be able to provide a communication from IRCC specifically requesting a paper TRF.

Please contact us at help@ieltscanada.ca before you apply for an additional copy of a General Training test report.

Additional TRF request

Test takers can order additional TRFs at the point of registration. To request additional TRFs after registration, please complete the Online Additional TRF Request Form.

If an additional TRF request is received by the main office before the test result is released, additional TRFs will be also sent on the 13th calendar day following the test day. If not, it will take 5–10 business days to process additional TRF request.

Test Report Forms are valid for 2 years after the test date. After this date, additional TRFs will not be sent.
