Institutions need original copies of your Test Report Form. Photocopies are not accepted. We can send up to five free additional copies of your TRF directly to receiving organizations (viz. universities, immigration offices etc) you are applying to. If you would like us to do this, please include the relevant addresses when you book your test. Alternatively, you can also request these free TRF’s until 5 days after your IELTS test date by writing to us at ExamsCustomerCare@britishcouncil.org. These free TRF copies will be sent to the receiving organizations (RO) in 7 working days after the result declaration date and you will be notified via SMS..
Please do not forget to give the full postal address of the institution. Without the complete address, we are not able to check whether the institution has access to the IELTS Test Report Form Verification Service that allows it to view your results after we have submitted them electronically. In case they do not access this service, we shall send your TRF by post.
We currently offer the following modes of transmission of your results:
- International Courier – The fee will be INR 1500 per address. The courier service takes approximately 4 days to deliver to the university. You will also be provided with the tracking number through SMS.
- By airmail – The fee will be INR 250 per address. It takes approximately two weeks to get delivered through Air Mail. Please note we do not provide a tracking number for this service.
- Electronic – The fee will be INR 250 per University. Universities / Institutions that have subscribed to the electronic download of scores (STED RO) will be sent results electronically. The university and its address details on ATRF Forms need to match exactly as mentioned on the downloadable STED RO list.

If your test center has been closed, you can order additional test report forms from ielts.org.
Please note that an additional Test Report Form takes around 10 working days to be processed upon receipt of payment.
Institutions may be able to view candidates’ scores through the IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) Verification Service. To do this they will need your TRF number which can be found at the bottom right corner of your Test Report Form.
