How long does IELTS certificate last
For Cambridge English exam result/certificate, it does not have an expiry date.
It shows that on a particular date you demonstrated language skills at a specified level, however, language skills are known to diminish over time if not used and maintained.
Individual institutions (such as universities, employers, professional organisations and government bodies) can choose how long to accept results for.
Some institutions will only accept certificates taken within the last 2 or 3 years, although many will take into account evidence that you have taken action to maintain or improve your level of English since taking your exam.
Please speak to the institution that you wish to apply to if you have any doubts.
Applications for a visa to study or live in a country may also require that you hold an English qualification that was taken within a specified period (within the last two years for example).
We strongly advise that you check the regulations for that country carefully before making an application.
If you have any doubts, speak to the institution you are applying to.
