Your IELTS score is all-important for going where you want to go when you want to go there. It is a trusted indicator of your language skills and is something that you can proudly showcase to prospective higher-level learning institutions and potential employers around the world. Test takers anxiously wait for these life-changing scores to be available online. However, there are quite a few candidates, from Singapore and other parts of the world, who are confused about how exactly to go about checking their online IELTS results. In this article, I will provide you with valuable information about the IDP online IELTS Test results.
When Will My IELTS Test Results Be Available?
For paper-based tests, results are available online only after 13 days and a paper copy of the results will be mailed to you after 13 days. You can arrange for two copies to be mailed as well. Computer-delivered test results are viewable online after 3 to 5 days from the test date and a paper copy of the results will also be mailed to you after 3 to 5 days. The fact that you get your test scores much faster than before is one of the major reasons why the computer-based test has become so popular
If you have taken IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) then you will only be able to view your results 13 days after your test.
How Can I Check my IDP IELTS Result Online?
You can get the required links to view your IELTS results from your IELTS test centre. You need to use your candidate number and the passport or ID number that you used to register for the IELTS test. After the time periods specified above, your results will be available for viewing, for up to 28 days. These online results cannot be used as an official confirmation of your test results.
When you register for the IELTS exam you can select up to five organizations of your choice to receive IELTS test reports. You can send additional test reports to other organizations for a small fee.
Re-evaluation Of Your IELTS Test Band Score
If you are of the opinion that your test results should be higher, then you are well within your rights to request that your exam be rechecked for a minimal fee. If your score does end up being amended, then you will receive a full refund.
How Long Are My Test Results Valid For?
IELTS Test scores are valid for two years only. The reason for this is that English proficiency tends to diminish with time if not practised and maintained for long periods of time.
Not obtaining the band scores required for your university or visa application can significantly hinder your future plans, and since you have to pay separately for each time you take the exam, it can also end up being quite costly as well. It is important to be well prepared before you even book your IELTS exam so that you can be confident that you have scored well even before your result confirmation.
