IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure

by Koolgurl

Hi guys,

Just wanted to share my IELTS general experience and the IELTS enquiry on results procedure. I gave mine in Nov 2018 (first attempt) and the below was my score:

R 8.5, L 8, S 6.5, W 7

I needed to get 7 in Speaking...so I was like super disappointed. Cuz I would have to take the entire exam again to get 0.5 in speaking and there was the added risk of scoring less in the other parts in the next attempt.

So I was strongly considering revaluation. Here are a few things about my revaluation and the IELTS enquiry on results procedure.

IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure:


1) IF your highest and lowest scores are different by 2 or more points then it IS true that 2 examiners will review your results.

2) BUT this is verified only locally. So if you are very confident that your score is not right you can give it for revaluation which will be done in Britain.

3) your revaluation money does get reimbursed if score increases.

4) the score can’t decrease after revaluation. It either increases or stays he same.

5) you can be sure that they do a genuine revaluation of your scores. Mine increased from 6.5 to 7.5 in speaking!!!!!

6) cost of revaluation is the same whether you want to revaluate only one section or all 4 sections.

7) revaluation is a waste for reading and listening since it’s all right or wrong answers. Consider it ONLY if you need higher scores in speaking or writing. Also do not consider it if you need the score to increase more ban a max of 1 point.

For anyone out there considering revaluation or awaiting revaluation results, be positive! My revaluation result came out on 5th Jan 2019. I had applied for it in last week of nov 2018.

Do let me know if any of you have any questions on this or the IELTS enquiry on results procedure :)

Hi Koolgurl,

Thanks for telling your IELTS remark story.

You've provided some really useful information on the IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure.

It's impossible to know the IELTS remark success rate but your IELTS remark story shows that it is possible.

Congratulations on your success.

We have applied for revaluation, BC guys are saying they will send the result in post? Is it that way you got the result?
