Test Report Forms (TRFs) for the Paper-Based version of IELTS are prepared 13 days after the test. If your test is on a Saturday, the results are ready 2 Fridays after the test was taken. If your test is on a Thursday, your results are ready 2 Wednesdays after the test was taken. Unofficial results are available at the above link. (Recognizing Organizations that receive TRFs electronically will receive notification that your result is available the same day.)
Test Report Forms for the Computer Delivered version of IELTS are prepared 5-7 days after the test.
You may pick up your TRF on the day it is ready at 341 King Street East. Please note that you must bring the identification document that you registered and took the test with or we cannot release the result form to you.
TRFs that are not picked up are then mailed through Canada Post letter delivery service along with TRFs to be sent to Recognizing Organizations.
If you would like your results to be sent by courier please pay for the appropriate service. If you prefer not to pay online, please contact us.

You have the opportunity to send 5 free TRFs to Recognizing Organizations during the test registration process.
If, after your test, you wish to send your results to an organization, please fill in our online application form. You will need to upload your passport or PR card as part of the application.
If you did your test in 2017 or earlier and you wish to send a TRF, please print, fill in and sign this form. Then, send the form to us by email (scan or take a photo) or mail it to us. You must also email us your passport or PR card.
Then, please pay the fees.
After the test, the price to prepare, print (or send electronically) and send a TRF to a Recognizing Organization is $25.00. (this includes Canada Post letter delivery service or for electronic results). After sending us the form, you may pay by credit card online or by telephone, or by debit card and credit card in person.
If you prefer us to send your TRF by courier (overnight delivery), additional fees apply. For example, to send a TRF to McMaster University by courier, the fee is $25.00 for the TRF plus $25.00 for the courier service for a total of $50.00.
Enquiry on Results
IELTS Scores are reliable and errors rarely occur. If, however, you would like your test to be re-scored, you may ask for an Enquiry on Results. You must request an Enquiry on Results within 6 weeks of your test date.
Your result will normally be available in 2 to 28 days, depending on several factors including the number of sections requested for remark. If you have not received a response after 28 days, please contact your test centre.
The fee to request an Enquiry on Results is $250.00. The fee is refundable in the result of an improved score.
