Good news is you can request a review (also called an IELTS remark, or IELTS Enquiry on Result) within 6 weeks of sitting your test by contacting the IDP test centre where you took your IELTS test.
If you apply for an Enquiry on Results, your test will be remarked by a senior IELTS examiner who will not know your original band scores for each part of the test.
You can request a remark for the whole IELTS test or for one or more parts (Listening, Reading, Writing or Speaking). Your reviewed results will be available within 3 to 21 days of applying for a remark.
There is a cost for requesting a remark. If your result is changed to a higher band score, the fee you paid will be refunded and a new TRF will be issued.
IELTS Candidate satisfaction is valuable to us. We look forward to hearing from you.
When you request a remark, your IELTS test will be remarked by an experienced senior IELTS examiner who is not aware of the original marks awarded for each part - Writing, Reading, Listening and Speaking. Your test centre is then notified of the remarked result and if the mark has changed, you will receive a new Test Report Form (TRF).
