At any time within two years of your test administration, you can apply to the centre where you took the test for further copies of the Test Report Form (TRF). As desired by the test centre, you may also be required to file a copy of lost complaint with the Police or any other supporting document (as advised by the test centre), before your request can be processed. There will be a small administrative charge for this service.
You can withdraw your application to appear for the IELTS test. An application for withdrawal / cancellation must reach the centre in writing along with the original receipt of payment of test fee.
The withdrawal administrative charge will be Rs. 2,475/- (Rupees Two Thousand Four Hundred Seventy Five Only), which will be deducted from the test fee paid by the applicant if the application for such withdrawal is received 5 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE TEST DATE, and the balance will be refunded to the applicant.
The fee is subject to change.
Requests received, LESS THAN 5 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE TEST DATE will NOT BE ENTERTAINED and NO REFUND would be possible. The decision of the test centre, would be final and binding on the applicant.
All refunds will be processed and sent within 30 days of the examination date originally booked for.
There are a number of variables affecting the length of time over which an IELTS score remains valid. As a general rule it is recommended that a Test Report Form (TRF), that is more than two years old should only be accepted as evidence of present level of ability if accompanied by proof that a candidate has actively maintained or tried to improve their English language proficiency.
