Test Report Form (TRF)
View Unofficial Results
On the 13th day after test day, test takers will be able to view
unofficial results online. It may take until that afternoon for the results to become visible. These online unofficial results are only available for 28 business days after the test result release date. Your TRF number is available on both the Test Report Form you receive and through the unofficial online result at the bottom of the page.
Please note that these are not to be used for official purposes, and that all institutions or agencies require official Test Report Forms.
On the 13th day after your test, official results will be sent via regular mail or courier. We strongly encourage you choose the courier option as regular post cannot be tracked and may take up to 3 weeks for delivery.
Test takers can also choose to pick up official TRF at our
main office in Kitchener only after 12:00 p.m. on the 13th day after the test. Test takers must notify IELTS Conestoga, before the results are released and they must bring their test day identification with them to pick up the TRF.
