The official IELTS by IDP app is here! Download it today.


You will receive an IELTS Test Report Form (or TRF) as official confirmation and proof of your test results. This can either be a paper copy or a digital version (eTRF). You can share your IELTS Test Report Form, as proof of your English proficiency, with the organisations you wish to apply to. They will be able to verify your results using the IELTS Results Service

Sharing official IELTS scores is simple. You can request to send your scores to your chosen organisation(s) through the booking portal. Organisations will specify how they prefer to receive official IELTS scores: either through postal mail or via IELTS Results E-delivery Service. 

To access your results online you will need your passport or ID number (the same ID you used when you registered for the test) and your candidate number. You can access your results through your IDP account
