IELTS Computer Delivered Tests + Band Score

Banned from Taking IELTS for 3 Years

by Fedor Zhatin

I have taken an IELTS test on the 1st of July. On the 4th I was asked for an additional ID, but, unfortunately, uploaded a photo of my russian passport, where there was a younger picture of mine.

On the 7th I was told that I had arranged for another person to take a test for me, which is simply not true. As a result of that, my TRF is withheld and I am banned from taking IELTS for 3 years.

I have appealed, paid for the appeal and have attached all the recent photos of me I could find. Now I have to wait for 10 weeks for the results to come. I hope that they will be positive.

Do I have good odds?

I think it's very difficult for anyone to know what your odds are.

If like you say everything is ok and you didn't try to cheat the system then they should find in your favour.
