How to Send IELTS Score To University?

The IELTS results are posted online at noon 13 calendar days after the test date. You will be notified through email if there is a delay in the results for whatever reason. Get the info via text message.

A Test Report Form  (TRF) with your IELTS score results will be mailed to you by the British Council (TRF). Within twenty-three calendar days of taking the test, you should obtain your TRF. Take good care of it, for there will be no more like it.

The British Council will gladly ship up to five hard copies to the locations of your choosing. A request for this can be made by filling out the form for a supplemental lab report.

This request can be made at the time of registration, or at any point during the validity period of your IELTS. Sending the TRF through airmail or courier will cost extra.

Many schools have signed up to receive IELTS score results electronically and will gladly take a scanned copy of your TRF.

You should see if they are registered on the university’s website. If they are, you can ask for an electronic transcript release form (E-TRF) and then notify the school that it is available for download.

Tips for Sending Your IELTS Score Results

At registration, you’ll have the option of online submitting any or all of the required five original documents. You can choose up to five schools to get your IELTS general score charts results by selecting this option at the conclusion of the registration page.

After that, you’ll be asked to enter your information. Those colleges and universities who have signed up to get TRFs will receive them digitally. As the name implies, this service is provided at no cost to you.

If you need this service at any point throughout the time your IELTS certificate is valid, you can call the British Council’s toll-free number and they will instruct you on how to upload and sending your IELTS results to the universities’ IDP system.
