Generally, there are two options to check your IELTS result.
The IELTS CEFR (Common European Framework References) is an international standard for describing the language ability of a candidate. It measures students' language skills from A1 (Beginners) to C2 (Advanced). This is a scale with six different levels as the CEFR level IELTS is very different from each other because Cambridge Assessment English decide to make the correlation between IELTS score and CEFR fluency.
Here is the comparison of both CEFR and IELTS
|8.5 - 9.0||C2|
|7.0 - 8.0||C1|
|5.5 - 6.5||B2|
|4.5 - 5.0||B1|
|0- 4.0||A2 & A1|
Suppose you are sure about your performance in the exam and cannot get the desired band score. In that case, you can fill out EOR (Enquiry On Result) by visiting the online section or at the IDP office. You must pay up to INR 12,000 and wait at least one month for the EOR to be completed. Once your bands have improved in EOR, your fee of EOR will be refunded to your account within 20 days. Suppose your result will remain the same after rechecking. In that case, you will not get a refund as per the rules and regulations of IDP. So it is recommended to all students that you fill out EOR only when they are sure about your performance.
