Frequently Asked Questions
How IELTS is scored?
IELTS results are reported on a 9-band scale.
IELTS results are designed to be simple and easy to understand. They are reported as band scores on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest).
What if I need to cancel my test? Can I get a refund?
For information on cancelling an IELTS test and potentially receiving a refund, contact the test centre where you registered for IELTS.
What is the IELTS results validity period?
While it is up to each organisation to set a validity period that works for their purposes, the IELTS partners recommend a 2-year validity period for IELTS test results based upon the well-documented phenomenon of second language loss or ‘attrition’.
