Results will not be given over the telephone or by fax / email. Candidates wishing to collect their results in person must advise the centre when making their application. Candidates must bring their passport with them on the day of pick up..
Scores are recorded on an official Test Report Form, showing overall ability as well as performance in listening, reading, writing and speaking. All scores are given on a 9 band scale from (non-user) to (expert user) with a fully operational command of the language.
Different institutions have their own entrance requirements and may require minimum scores in particular modules. In general, universities request an overall band score of 6.0 or 6.5 in the academic module for entrance to academic courses. You are advised to check the score required with the particular institution to which you are applying.
You have the option of applying for 5 additional copies of your test result at the time of making your test application. The additional Test Report Forms will not be sent to the candidates themselves, but to academic institutions/government agencies/professional bodies/employers that require it.
After the test, you can apply to the centre that administered your test for additional copies of the Test Report form, up to within two years of sitting the test.
