IELTS Test Report Form
Physical collection of your IELTS Test Report Form is temporarily unavailable. Results will be posted to your nominated postal address in Australia on the release date. If you would like your results to be posted outside of Australia, please bring a pre-paid and self-addressed international envelope with you on test day. The Test Report Form is the only official notification of your IELTS score. Test Report Form information cannot be provided by e-mail, fax or telephone. You only receive one Test Report Form.
Re-print Test Report Form
Up to 5 additional copies of your Test Report form can be mailed directly to government offices, employers, and institutions such as universities and colleges. Test Report form copies cannot be sent to immigration agents, education agents or lawyers.
A fee of $25 is charged per Test Report Form requested after results have been released. To arrange for additional Test Report Forms to be printed and posted, please complete the Re-print Request of IELTS Test Report Form (PDF, 496kB) and submit it to the UTS IELTS Centre. Payment must be made by credit/debit card only (Visa/Mastercard).
If you sat for an IELTS test more than 2 years ago then it is not possible to give you a copy of your results, as all results are cleared from our system after 2 years and are no longer valid. However, if you need results information for immigration and your test was less than 3 years ago, we can provide your TRF number. Immigration can use this number to check and verify your results online. Please note that providing a TRF number will still incur a surcharge of $25.
If your IELTS test was more than 3 years ago we are unfortunately unable to provide you with a copy of your TRF as details of your tests are longer available in our system after this time.
To support social distancing, we have paused our front counter services until further notice. If you have any appeal related questions, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquiry.
If you would like to submit an appeal application, please fill in the IELTS Appeal Form (PDF, 588kB), complete the payment of $176.00 here and email your form and payment receipt to us. We will process your appeal as soon as possible. Please note that appeals can only be submitted a maximum of 6 weeks after your test date.
You may choose to apply for a remark within 6 weeks from the test date. To apply for a remark, please bring the following to the UTS IELTS Centre.
- Complete the IELTS Enquiry on Results/Appeal Form (PDF, 588kB)

The cost of a remark is $176 for one or more test modules. You will receive a full refund if your result is changed to a higher band score. Payment must be made by credit/debit card only (Visa/Mastercard).
Your result will normally be available in 2 to 21 days, depending on several factors including the number of sections requested for re-mark. If you have not received a response after 28 days, please contact us.
