IELTS test results for LPDP scholarship registration

To submit the required 2024 LPDP scholarship application documents, you need to upload an English proficiency certificate issued no more than two years prior to the scholarship application year. This goes for the IELTS test as well. 

The IELTS certificate can be obtained from various test formats, including IELTS on Computer, IELTS on Paper, and IELTS Online. Besides the method of taking the test, the time taken for your results to become available is also different for all three formats. 

  • IELTS on Computer

For the listening, reading, and writing components, the test will be conducted using a computer, while the speaking component will be a face-to-face interview with an examiner.

The results for the IELTS on Computer test will be available faster than other test formats – you can expect to receive your results in just 1–5 days after you take the test. 

  • IELTS on Paper

The tests for listening, reading, and writing skills are conducted the classic way - you write your answers on a piece of paper using a pen or pencil. Just like for IELTS on Computer, the speaking component for IELTS on Paper is carried out with an examiner in person.

The results for your IELTS on Paper test will be released within 13 days after you do the test. 

  • IELTS Online

This might be the most convenient one of all. The test material is the same as IELTS on Computer and IELTS on Paper, but IELTS Online allows you to take the exam from anywhere. Just set up a comfortable space with your own computer and stable internet access to do the test. The speaking test is done with an examiner via an online video call, so you’ll need to have a functioning webcam, microphone and speakers, of course.

You will receive the test result via email within 3–6 days after taking the test.
