Getting your IELTS results is easy. If you take IELTS on a computer, you will get your results within 2 to 5 days of taking your test. Or if you choose to take an IELTS test on paper, your results will be available 13 days after your test.

Your results are reported as band scores which range from a band 0 to a band 9, with each band corresponding to a level of English-language proficiency. You will get an overall band score, as well as one for each part of the test - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.

If you are not happy with your IELTS results, you can request a remark (Enquiry on Results) within 6 weeks of your test date. This process takes between 2 and 21 days, and if your band scores change, you will get a refund on the fee associated with requesting a remark.
