Request Remarking Your IELTS Test

You may request a remark if you believe there is an error in your score.

You must request a remark within six weeks of your test date. You can request a remark for one or more parts (Reading, Writing, Listening or Speaking). The fees are the same, $180 (taxes included).

If you apply for a remark, your test will be remarked by a senior IELTS examiner who will not know your original band scores for each part of the test. Your reviewed results will be available within 2 to 21 days of applying for a remark.

If your result is changed to a higher band score, they will issue a new Test Report Form (TRF). Your remarking fees ($180) will be refunded.

Note: After both the payment and application form are submitted, we will attempt to process your request within 2 business days.

Complete this form and email it to ielts@sait.ca

Requesting Additional Copies Of Your Test Results

As long as your IELTS results are valid (2 years from the date of the test), you can request additional copies of your test Report Form.

Each additional TRF is $30 including tax, regardless of whether the institutions accept results electronically or by post. Institutions will only accept official Test Report Forms sent directly from Testing Center.

Note if you require an additional TRF for the purpose of immigration to Canada, you can request to have one directly post to you or pick up. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) only accepts IELTS results submitted by the applicant.

Note: After both the payment and application form are submitted, we will attempt to process your request within 2 business days.
