E-mail responses

You will be sent automatic emails, which are described below.

The first indicating receipt of your application.

This regarding your ID document upload:

The ID document you supplied for your IELTS test application has been uploaded successfully and is awaiting review by your test centre. Once your ID document has been approved you will receive confirmation from your test centre. If your ID document does not meet the necessary requirements then it will be rejected and you will receive notice from your test centre that you will need to upload a replacement.
If you have any questions, please contact IELTS using the details below.

If there is a problem with your documents, you will receive this:
The identity document(s) you supplied for your IELTS test application has been rejected by your test centre. There are strict criteria for acceptance and your scanned identity document must be clearly readable and should clearly show:
your ID number
your signature
your date of birth
your photograph
your ID expiry date
scanned identity document must be in colour
Click here to upload a new copy of your document(s).
You should click on the blue 'here' and upload again as instructed.

Hint: The main cause for this is a problem with the ID document. If you cannot upload your document it may be that it is too 'heavy' (too many bytes) or that it is a .pdf. Put the image on screen on your device and use the 'Snipping Tool' (In Accessories) and try to upload the resulting image. It should be no more than 150 kb.

Another indicating that your application has been accepted (i.e. after we have received your fee etc.)

N.B. You will be sent a centre specific letter / email giving you details of test venue and times. This is the most important communication. Please read it carefully. This will be from ielts@rlc.co.uk
If you do not have this within 12 days of the published test date, please check you spam folders. If there is nothing there, please email us at: ielts@rlc.co.uk.
Please note our email systems do not work well with @qq.com emails. Please provide an alternative email if you have a @qq.com address.
