Test Report Form (TRF)

The Test Report Form (TRF) will be printed 13 days after the test day.  You can collect your TRF at the IELTS Dubai Test Centre.  You need to bring the form of identity you used to register for the test in order to pick up your TRF. 

The candidate will receive ONE Test Report Form.  This is a very valuable document and it is recommended that you take care in keeping your TRF secure.  Replacement TRFs cannot be issued.


You can also check your IELTS results online.  In order to access your scores online you will need to enter your Name, date of irth, and your Registered ID (Passport or National Identity Number).


A candidate may request up to five (5) additional TRFs to be sent to Receiving Institutions (universities, professional bodies, etc) for free within one (1) month of taking the IELTS test.  More than five TRFs are subject to a 60 AED fee per TRF.  These are mailed directly to the Receiving Institution/s of your choice.


To request additional TRFs to be sent to Receiving Institutions more than one (1) month after taking the test the candidate must complete the Application for the Issue of Additional TRFs.  There is a 50 AED fee for each additional TRF requested after the one-month period as well as a 100 AED Courier Fee.  Please complete the TRFs-Payment Authorisation Form and return it with the “Application for the Issue of Additional TRFs” to the IELTS Dubai Test Centre.  If you need copies of these forms email us a request.


NOTE: Test Centres are NOT permitted to give test results over the telephone, via fax or e-mail to either the candidate or the receiving institutions.


Enquiry on Results

A candidate may apply for an Enquiry on Results, which is a review of the individual and/or final score received on the Test Report Form.  All enquiries and applications must be made through the IELTS Test Centre Administrator at the IELTS Centre where you took the test.  This request must be made within six (6) weeks of the test date on the Test Report Form.


The Enquiry on Results will be forwarded by IELTS Dubai to IELTS Australia.  In approximately 6-8 weeks, a letter will be emailed to the candidate by the IELTS Dubai Test Centre, along with the final score as marked by Cambridge ESOL.


Please note the following points:

  • There is an initial fee of 550 AED; however, should the scores change after the Enquiry on Results the 550 AED will be completely refunded by IDP Dubai
  • There is no appeal after this re-mark, the decision is final
  • During the period of remarking your test results cannot be used to apply for a university or to be sent to an immigration office.
  • Should the scores change after the Enquiry on Results, we will issue a new Test Report Form for the candidate, who can apply for (5) five extra copies to be sent to receiving institutions free of charge within one month of the printing date at the bottom of the new Test Report Form
  • For those whose scores remain the same we will return the original Test Report Form to the candidate and there will be no refund
