APPEALING YOUR TEST RESULTS
To request a review of your individual band score and/or the overall score you received on the test report form, you must complete our appeal form, submit your original test report form, and pay a $160 review fee. You can submit your paperwork in person at Columbia College’s Ainslewood Campus and pay the review fee at Columbia’s bookstore. You can also submit your paperwork and a money order or certified cheque for $160 CAD (payable to Columbia International College) by mail. Your request must be submitted within six weeks of the test date.
All information related to your request for review will be sent from Columbia’s Test Centre to IELTS Australia within one week. The review is conducted by a senior IELTS examiner. If the examiner determines that your score should stay the same, we will keep your review fee and your test report form will be returned to you. If the review results in an increase to your score, your review fee will be refunded and revised test report forms will be sent to you and all the institutions that received original copies of your test results.
The review process may take two to three weeks from receipt of your request.
