Organisations that accept IELTS results can access the IELTS Results Service. This service is secure, free, and simple to use.
The IELTS Results Service allows you to:
- look up a result via a Test Report Form (TRF) number to verify the test taker's identity and score
- receive results from test takers securely using our e-delivery service
- review results on screen, or download results for import into your own system
- set up an API to import results into your own system automatically.

Validity period of IELTS test results
The IELTS partners recommend that an IELTS result demonstrates a test taker’s English language ability for a maximum period of two years, based upon the well-documented phenomenon of second language loss or “attrition”. We recommend that an IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) which is more than two years old should only be accepted if it is accompanied by proof that the test taker has actively maintained, or tried to improve, their English.
Verifying IELTS test results beyond two years
You can verify a TRF older than two years. The IELTS Results Service will display TRFs for the maximum amount of time possible according to relevant Data Protection legislation. It is our policy that we cannot further investigate TRFs that are more than three years old.
I was able to log in, download the scores and forward them to our admissions team. This has really helped us speed up the application process. Love it!
As part of our assessment processes all IELTS reports are verified using the online IELTS Results Service. Access to this site has enabled us to ensure that the IELTS results we receive are genuine. Using the TRF website consistently helps us to trust that the scores we are receiving are genuine. The website is very user-friendly, and I would recommend it to anyone who assesses English ability using IELTS.
