Activation of results in the IELTS platform for verification of institutions

Some colleges only receive copies for online verification. Please confirm this information with the university before requesting a physical shipment. Institutions can view candidate results through the IELTS Certificate Verification Service. If the institution to which you are applying has informed you that they wish to receive your results through this means, please include the relevant addresses in the Candidate Portal within two years of taking the exam. This service is free; you can add a maximum of 5 universities to view your IELTS results online.

Please note that although we give the university access to your results, you must individually share your Test Report Form number in the lower right corner of the certificate for them to complete the verification.

What is the validity period of the IELTS?

Whether you have taken the IELTS exam on paper or from a computer, the validity of the IELTS exam certification (known as TRF - Test Report Form) is two years. Institutions can accept a TRF of more than two years, but after this period, you may have to present evidence that you have maintained or improved your English level since the exam date.

Please note that our center will not be able to access your IELTS results if you took them more than two years ago. Thus, we will not be able to generate copies of them for you or third parties once this period has elapsed.

Can I request a review of my results?

If you have not received your expected score, you can request a new correction of your IELTS English certificate, which is called: a review of the results. You can choose which exam sections you want to be corrected again, and you will have to request it at the center where you took it.

The results review service costs £80 (paid in local currency, ARS, at the exchange rate of the day of payment). This amount will be 100% refunded if the original result changes. The review can take from 2 to 21 days. If after 21 days you do not receive news, please contact us.

This request must be made to the Authorized Center within five weeks of the written test due date, as the Global IELTS UK Team must receive the request within the sixth week.

To make this request, you must enter the Candidate portal, select the "results" option, click on "I would like my test to be remarked" (an opportunity you find at the bottom), and finally,  make the payment by bank transfer. If not, you can also complete the form at the bottom of this page, "EOR Form," and send it to: AR_IELTS@britishcouncil.org.ar, along with proof of payment.

Important:  The British Council cannot receive payments from banks outside of Argentina. You must pay for your shipment from a bank in Argentina.

Send proof of payment of the review fee to AR_IELTS@britishcouncil.org.ar

Usually, your result will be available in a period of 2 to 21 days. It depends on several factors, including the number of sections for which you request a correction.

Una vez tu solicitud de recalificación haya sido resuelta, te notificaremos por correo electrónico el proceso a seguir. En caso de ser modificada tu nota, deberás entregar en el centro respectivo tu Test Report Form (TRF).  

Note that:

You can request a review for one, several, or all exam components. The components you select must be the ones you wish to requalify; once the request is finalized, no modification can be made.

The results cannot be used during the requalification process until IELTS issues the official response; it applies to physical and electronic copies.

If the requalification response indicates a change in the grade in one, several or all of the components, the amount paid for this process will be reimbursed.

IELTS score and levels 

What does my exam score mean?

The IELTS English test assesses English language skills at various levels. This English test uses a band scoring system to measure results, with 1 being the lowest band and nine being the highest. You will be scored on an IELTS score range of 0-9 for each section of the test, reflecting your level of English.

Your IELTS transcript shows a score for each of the four skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) and an overall score. You can earn a total band score (Ex. 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0) or a half band score (Ex. 5.5, 6.5, and 7.5) on each exam section.
