IELTS remark process

Learn about the International English Language Testing System’s remark process.

Enquiry on Results

Candidates must apply for an enquiry on results (EOR) within six weeks of the test (see table below).

The test papers are sent to a senior IELTS examiner for an independent remark. Please note it can take 2 to 21 days to process a remark.

If your remark is successful, we will issue you a new Test Report Form (TRF) provided you have returned your original TRF to us. Your marks will either stay the same or increase. Your marks will not change if the senior examiner rates you lower than the original examiner.

Fees

The EOR fee is NZ$195. It is the same price for both a full remark (all four modules) and a partial remark (any one module or combination of modules). If there is an increase in any band score, your full EOR fee will be refunded.

EOR Application Process

  1. Fill in the EOR request form.
  2. The IELTS Centre Coordinator will send you an online payment link.
  3. Make online payment.
