UOW College cannot be responsible for results lost in the mail by Australia Post. Registered post envelopes are available to purchase at the speaking registration counter on test day. 

Your test report form is a valuable document and you should keep it safe and secure. It includes:

  • Your score, on a band scale from 1 to 9, for each module of the test
  • Your overall band score, on a scale from 1 to 9
  • Whether you have completed the Academic or General Training module
  • Your candidate photo and details of your nationality, first language and date of birth. 


When you apply for the test, you can list up to five institutions you would like a copy of your results sent to, free of charge. If you require additional copies of your results to be sent after the test, you will need to complete the Reprint Form and pay $30 for each test report form requested.
