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.
