How do I get my IELTS test results?

Only one copy of your IELTS test report form (TRF) will be posted to your address or may be collected. Your Test Report Form is a valuable document and you should keep it safe and secure as it is valid for 2 years, with no limit on how many times you can use it for study, work, or migration.

An additional five copies of your results can be sent free of charge to receiving institutions if they were listed in the 'applications to recognising organisations' section of the online application that you submitted. A receiving institution is a tertiary education institution, a professional body or a government department that has set IELTS as an entry requirement.

Any further copies or copies applied for after this time will incur a fee of NZ$20.00 each (international post and/or courier charges may also apply). To request duplicate copies of your IELTS test report form (TRF), please download and complete the Duplicate IELTS Test Report application form and payment form and return them to:

IELTS Centre, Building 170
Unitec Institute of Technology
Private Bag 92 025

Once the IELTS Centre has received your form (and payment if applicable), your request will be processed within two working days and the results sent directly to the specified receiving institution/s.

Preview your IELTS test results online

You can preview your test results online 13 days after your test at the IDP website. You will need to provide your name, passport number, date of birth and the date of your test. Please note that online provisional results will not be considered formal advice of results.

If for any reason you wish to query your test results, you may lodge your application at the reception in Building 170 (Unitec campus map), within six weeks of your test date. You may also email us to request the forms and submit your request by email.
