why are IELTS result delayed?
The question “Why are IELTS results delayed or held ?” is common among many candidates when their IELTS results are not announced in 13 calendar days. There are two main reasons for it.
One of the the reason is normal quality control procedures which are done by Cambridge examination to make sure that exam level is as per their expectations.
Second reason is when paper is out before examination or when wrong practice is done. Like candidates are helped to pass their exams.
I have uploaded image of 8 October exam which is a letter received by my student. Luckily she got result today so it means her result delayed only for a week.
But same time, British Council hasn’t announced its result for 8 October. I hope it comes in a day or two. As it can help many candidates. Specially those who have limited time to submit their applications for student visas, immigration or urgent purposes.
Recently, one of my student who appeared 2 times already. This time he appeared on 8 October exam which is held , the examination center is British Council Karachi. He has to submit the result very soon but he doesn’t have result with him. He doesn’t know what to do either attempt the 7 November or wait for this one. If he waits and meanwhile his result comes , that money will be wasted. I understand if he doesn’t mind paying for exam then it is ok , but if it is troublesome for him to arrange such amount and spare time for practice , it should be challenging for him.
Now the question how long it takes for the result to come? It may be a week , ten days or 3 months depending on situation. But normally it takes about 3 weeks.
Another questions i have is from one candidate that if the result is shown on website but he doesn’t have printed copy of it, will his result be same? It depends , if Cambridge examination find your test normal , there won’t be any changes.
