How does IELTS ensure test security?

IELTS takes a multi-layered approach to security. That's because we believe in a fair and reliable assessment of English. As an organisation, you can have confidence in the English scores you receive.

There are many established security measures that safeguard test takers, whilst also protecting the interests of the organisations that rely on the legitimacy of IELTS results.

These security measures include:

  • regulations in regards to test papers
  • test taker registration and confirmation systems
  • training test centre staff in the identification of imposters, fraud, and cheating
  • rigorous testing conditions
  • routine inspection of test results before release
  • a free and secure online service to verify test takers results
  • a Test Report Form (TRF) with many security features, including security-enhanced paper, authenticated by an IELTS validation stamp, and a high-resolution photograph of the test taker.
