IELTS exam rechecking procedures for AEO and British Council
IELTS Exam rechecking procedures for AEO and British Council
Many candidates are unhappy with their band score normally in writing sometimes other sections and wonder if they can get it rechecked. Yesterday, I got a call from a candidate, he received his IELTS result and was a little disappointed with his writing score. He has been consistently scoring 7.0 in IELTS practice test. He was asking me about IELTS rechecking procedure, and he also said that if we recheck the paper so it is quite possible that a different examiner may give a different score, but that time I had no idea so I discussed it with AEO officials. I got all information from them. I asked if there is any chance to get higher band after rechecking or in what section of IELTS can candidates get high mark. They said there are some chances of increasing marks of all modules if you think they were not graded well. But there are also chances that your band score may come down. This is the information what AEO provided, to help candidates who are looking forward to applying for rechecking of their IELTS exam.
Below are some questions about applying for rechecking:
What documents are required for remarking?
You will need 3 documents mentioned below.
- original result

Who does the remarking?
Many people think that rechecking is done in Pakistan for Pakistani candidates or other countries locally for their candidates but the fact is rechecking is done by senior IELTS examiner based in UK. Note : If you are unhappy with your results, rechecking form should be sent within 30 days after results are announced. As per discussion with AEO they said that normally .5 band increases once you apply for rechecking while British Council representatives said it could be 1 or 2 band. Applying for rechecking could be a risk as they may also decrease your band if they feel you have been given more Band.
What is refund policy of rechecking?
If you get same band in remarking, your fee will be deducted. Otherwise you will get refund if your band increases.
Is the fee less for single module rechecking?
NO, whether you apply for one module or all, fee will be same. So it is better to apply for all the modules.
