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 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 :)

IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure
by: IELTS buddy

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.

My unbelievable writing score
by: Zsattar

I received my test result as follows:

L 9
R 9
W 6.5
S 7.5

Overall 8

Yet I could not qualify for being short of just 0.5 in writing module.

I have always been a good writer as far as grammar, vocabulary and contents considered. I don't believe in memorizing answers for writing or speaking. I might have made few spelling mistakes cos I could not get any time to re check or edit my writing.

However, I m quite sure that I can communicate very well in writing and I make perfect sense with due respect given to grammar. I don't care nor hoped for 7.5 or 8 in writing. But I am sure, knowing myself and reading sample essays in Cambridge past papers that scored 7 or even 7.5, that I deserved 7 at least.

I believe I should apply for re evaluation of my writing only.
My first IELTS was 10 years ago and I scored overall 7.5 and no less than 7 in any module.

Any input will be helpful.

A score never seen before.

Hello, I got my test results online last week and scored

I need 7 in writing and thinking about applying for EOR, any suggestion or thoughts on my decision to do the same is really appreciated

A score never seen before.
by: IELTS buddy

To be honest, with those discrepancies your writing was probably looked at again.

There is a procedure in place whereby if the scores look like they could possibly be wrong, it is flagged up and double checked. A difference of 2 bands is believed to represent this and yours falls into that category.

So there is little point in an Enquiry on Results for you.

Shall I go for recheck?
by: Anonymous

I got my scores last week :
LRWS 9 9 6.5 7.5 .

Do you think my scores were also rechecked because of 2 band difference!? Or shall I apply for recheck?

The same boat
by: Niva


We are almost on the same boat. I just viewed my score today(BC) and I got 6.5 in Speaking. I was a little bit disappointed because my target was really to score at least 7 each. In what country did you take your IELTS exam? I took mine in Philippines. Really planning to have an EOR. My scores in other sections are : Listening : 8.5, Reading: 7.5, Writing : 7. Do you think I stand a good chance? Though I could really say that I was nervous at the time of the speaking exam. I just think I still deserve a 7.

By the way, your post is really helpful. thanks

Advice on IELTS EOR
by: Alice C

Hi everyone, I took my second exam last month after 2 years. Results: Overall band score 6.0
Listening: 7.0
Reading: 6.5
Writing: 5.0
Speaking: 5.0
I was really surprised for 2 reasons: When I took the exam in 2017 I had LIST (5.5), READ (6.5), WRIT (5.5), SP (6.0). I was not really prepared and I couldn't finish Writing TASK2. In these 2 years I lived in England for a while, I graduated and I definitely improved my knowledge of the language, especially in listening (and in fact I had an increase in listening from 5.5 to 7.0). what I can't explain is the deterioration in speaking and writing, when I managed to finish both tasks 1 and 2. In general my writing skills are very high, and I have been studying English since I was little. These results do not correspond to my real knowledge of the English language. Would you give me your opinion on the whole question and above all if it's worth asking for an EOR for the Writing and Speaking sections? I need an overall band score of 6.5. Thank you all.

Hello! Thanks for all the information. As I see, my scores are probably useless for remarking?

L 8
R 8
W 6
S 65

I was dissapointed about my speaking knowledge. Because I was sure to get 7 or so. But the biggest worry is on my writing band score. Will have to take Ielts again for lacking 0.5 in writing section...
I am not 100percent sure if I can get higher mark though 😔 what would you do? Should I try reevaluation?

Scores not automatically checked if 2 band difference
by: Anonymous

My friend had a 9 in listening and 6.5 in writing and then got a 7.5 in writing. So I don't think they always recheck after you score 2 or more bands higher. She lives in the UK and got her results in 4 weeks.

I got an 8.5 in writing in my first attempt and on my second attempt (because the ielts expires) I got a 6.5. So strange. But I did do the exam in an different venue and it was a CBT exam.

So I'm going to go for a remark and will update on it soon. But I heard a lot of ppl do not get a bump up and even if they do it is only by 0.5. But I desperately need a 0.5 bump up so I'm going to give it a go.

Might take a lot of time but we will see. Coz I don't believe I did that badly, certainly not to a 6.5 level.

Results of EOR
by: Alice C

Hi everyone,

I want to write the update of my Enquiry on Results. I asked for a revision for the Writing and Speaking sections.

The Speaking has passed from 5 to 6, with an increase of 1 point, while the Writing one from 5 to 5.5, with an increase of 0.5.

However, I preferred to repeat the exam again and her are the new scores:

Listening 6
Reading 7.5
Writing 5
Speaking 7

As you can see, there aren't any guarantees, it often depends on individual performance but some constants, perhaps on the Writing section, I think can be noticed in different candidates, for what I have seen.

I hope to be useful to someone or at least to remove some doubts.

All the best,

I sent put in for EOR two days ago. I still haven't received a mail from BC stating that they have received my papers for reevaluation. Please is this normal?

Can I get a final result without any form of acknowledgement? Also the site says the process takes 2 to 21 days. Is this true?

Any recent experiences with them to verify this?

Where to address initial TRF
by: Anonymous

So BC sent me an email that there was an increase in my writing module's score. However, they didn't give me instructions where to address the initial TRF because I took it here in Helsinki, 🇫🇮 and proctors from BC Athens 🇬🇷 were the ones who gave the exam. Should I mail it back to BC Athens or BC Finland? Just want to make sure.

EOR increase 1.5 bands
by: Anonymous

Hi All,
Just wanted to give you a little encouragement after my EOR for writing this week.
I scored L/R/W/S 8.0/8.5/6.5/9.

I decided to go for EOR on writing as my other results were good, I am English and hold a degree and PGCE! Something felt wrong and I wouldn't have been able to rest if I hadn't challenged it.

My results came back yesterday as increased in writing from 6.5 to 8.0. A whole 1.5 bands!

If you really feel you should have scored better, definitely go for EOR!

So shall i go ahead with speaking re evaluation??


It may be worth it in your case as your other scores are clearly quite high, unless of course you are aware that your speaking is not as good as your other skills. And of course it depends how much you need the speaking score to go up by. Half a band is the most common increase, one band is possible but less likely. Of course it could remain the same.

If you look at the correspondence you were given before the test those details should be on there.

The centre name will be the name of the centre where you took the test and they will have have their own centre number. If you can't find it you'll have to call them to ask.

Go for remark
by: Iacopo

Hi guys I want to share my story with you. I took Idp academic computer based ielts on january 29th 2020 with the following marks:

L/R/S/W - 8.5 / 9 / 7.5 / 6.5.

I needed not less than 7 in each part. I was dissappointed because i suddendly realized That i completely missed the task achievment.

So i decided to resit the exam on february the 8th. After the exam i was really confident since i thought i had done one of my best writing. When the results were released i had an awful Surprise. Same results of the previous time. So i decided to go for a remark.

After a week i had my new results. I had an increase of 1.5 in the writing from 6.5 to 8. I am pretty sure That the test was corrected by the school in which i took It and where i attended a private ielts course. They knew exactly which were the marks that i needed.

To recapitulate, if you are confident about your test go for the IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure.


No it won't have been corrected by the teachers at your school, even if they are examiners. For the enquiry on results procedure, remarks go to more senior examiners to be looked at, probably someone based in the UK.

EOR Speaking
by: NehParam

Hi All,

I took a CBT General training test for the second time and received the following scores yesterday and I'm shocked to the core :-

L- 8.5
R- 8.0
W- 7.5
S- 6.5

As I mentioned this was my second attempt during the first attempt I scored 8 in speaking.

I have applied for EOR yesterday and keeping my fingers crossed. Any thoughts you all? I took the test from IDP. What are the chances of my scores getting changed? I know this is an abstract query but would really appreciate any response from anyone who may have faced the same situation. Also, how long does it actually take for them to complete the process- I know the website says 2-21 days but was still wondering how long.

I applied for EOR right after the result was released
by: LoveSolarMMM

I applied for the EOR, after getting notified that my result is: L 7.5, R 8.5, W 6.5, S 6.0

- My writing band is so horrendous as I took twice 5 years ago for university admission purpose, got 7 in writing for both times. I'm also disappointed to my Speaking band. Once I received the result, I went for EOR after 10 seconds hesitation.

- I completed my bachelor's degree in Australia recently, I enjoyed full English life in the past 3-4 years, did countless essays and presentations.

- I made solid preparations for all modules (except Speaking). I admit I possibly made a mistake in Part 2 that I wasn't aware I had to speak at least 1 minute, I did all the other parts decently. Yet I still applied EOR for W and S. I desperately want to see a 7 in W, I couldn't believe my writing band declined as I am so confident to my writing skill.

- I will update my EOR outcome here for sure as soon as I receive their email.

is it possible to do an EOR twice?
my original grades are the following: L8 R8 W6.5 S6.5 . after applying EOR the results were slightly changed to L8 R8 W7 S6.5.
is it possible to do a second EOR so I can increase my speaking to 7?

Should I apply for remark?
by: Anonymous

My IELTS score:
Reading: 9
Listening: 9
Writing: 6
Speaking: 8.5

Do you think it's sensible to ask for reevaluation? I kind of need 7 in writing and it's a waste of time and money to take the test again.

IELTS Enquiry on Results Procedure
by: IELTS buddy

You need to contact and apply at the centre you took the test. This is the information from the British Council website:

"If you would like to make an enquiry about your test results, you need to apply at the centre where you booked your test within six weeks of your test date. You can choose which sections of the test you want to have re-marked.

There is a charge for an enquiry on IELTS test results, however this charge will be refunded if your score increases for any section of the test.

Your result will normally be available in 2-21 days, this depends on several factors including the number of sections requested for re-mark.

If you have not received a response after 28 days, please contact your test centre."

There are no statistics on the success of an enquiry on results so it's not possible to say.

It's worth considering doing it as you could get lucky and you only need a half band more, as it's less likely to go up a full band.

You also need to consider how confident you are that it should have been a 7. Do you think the 6.5 is actually wrong?

Also did you do unexpectedly well in speaking and reading where you got 7? If you think that if you take the test again you may then not get the 7s in those modules, then again a remark may be worth considering.

Really, unless there is some real reason that you think an error was made, it is just a bit of a gamble and only you can decide whether you wish to risk it.

Improved my writing band score
by: Anonymous

I got a band score of 6.5 in writing and i was not too confident of getting a higher band in my IELTS Enquiry on Results as i couldn't finish the concluding sentence because of lack of time. However, i had made my conclusion very clear in the very first paragraph and hence opted for a EOR.

Fortunately, i got a 0.5 increase and moved to Band 7 - good enough the purpose i wrote the IELTS. IELTS Australia finished the review in 3 days but I received the TRF in 9 days.

The process was quick because i had applied for EOR for one section. If it's for more sections, then the results may be delayed.

Understand the scoring criteria and answer accordingly in your writing and speaking test. If you know that you meet all the criteria, then go for an EOR.

Waiting for EOR outcome
by: Anonymous

Hi, I have taken my exam at Macquire Uni, Sydney on 03/09/2020. I was very confident on my results but unfortunately landed at 6.5 in writing section. Other scores are pretty much okay but disappointed with writing. I have opted for revaluation in writing module and hoping for the best to come.
