Forgot to Transfer Answers in IELTS Reading

by qween


I recently did my ielts test and I did not transfer all my reading answers from the booklet to the answer sheet as it was my understanding that we will be given extra time like the listening test.

I read somewhere that we can request to ielts to check the booklet for answers but I could not find any further information about this.

Is there anything I can do to fix my mistake because the rest of my test went really well and I do not have time to redo the entire test again because there is a deadline I have to meet.

I've never heard that you are able to ask them to check the answer booklet and I find it highly unlikely that you would be able to request this.

There are thousands taking the test each week the test is hold. It would be a big task to attempt to go through someone's booklet and work out there answers, especially if a lot of people were doing the same thing.

And if they allowed it it may encourage more people to forget, making it worse.

So check with the centre you took the test if you like, but I'm 100% sure you can't and unfortunately you will likely have to take the test again.
