How to obtain my test result

The department or agency that ordered your test is responsible for sending you a copy of your result within a few days of the test. If you do not receive your result, contact them to obtain it. 

If you need an official copy of a previous test result, fill out all required fields and submit the e-form.

Important: You may be required to provide your test results. For that reason, always keep a paper copy in your own personal file.

Recourse mechanism

  • if you believe that the test was administered under unfavourable conditions, you may request a re-test
  • address your concerns to the organization that scheduled you to be tested. The situation will be assessed and, if a re-test proves necessary, it will be granted


  • the Online Testing Facility (OLTF) system automatically applies the appropriate scoring key for each test. As a result, rescoring of tests administered online is not available
  • second language tests are used to assess your knowledge in your second official language. They are not used as diagnostic instruments. Consequently, the information available with respect to performance is limited to the score achieved on the ability assessed in your second official language; more detailed feedback cannot be provided
