Comments on IELTS Test Results

Although the spread of results is a fair reflection of our students’ performance, the number of results does not give a complete picture as we have not received all of the students’ results. As students have to register for IELTS as independent candidates, the results go directly to them. Although we ask them to inform us of their results, unless they show us the result slips, we do not know how successful they have been.
