Hi
I took the IoL exam a couple of weeks ago and I was just wondering if those that have already taken the exam could tell me how long they had to wait for their results? It says within 14 weeks on the website, but I just wondered if they really took that long? Thanks in advance
Lisa

IoL results Feb 3, 2010

I can remember back in 2001 I took the exam in November (they were then held in November, not January as they do now) and got the results in March.

Oh dear Feb 3, 2010

Thanks Birgit - I was kind of hoping that the 14 week thing was an outside estimate, but clearly that is not the case!! Oh well, I won't start checking the postbox yet then. The wait's going to kill me.

Spring! Feb 3, 2010

Well last year the exam was in January, and the results arrived mid-April if I remember well, so you'd better think about something else in the meantime!
Good luck anywayicon_smile.gif

Beginning of May Feb 3, 2010

You can safely expect the results at the beginning of May. Last year (the dates of the exam were more or less the same as this year) a colleague told me that she had received her results on May 7th... So my advice is to keep your mind occupied and not think about it.

Good luck with the results!

May!! Feb 3, 2010

Thanks for the replies - April seems late enough, but May! That's more than 14 weeks, what can take that long?
Well, I think that I'll just have to forget about it now. Are you waiting for results too Tomas? I seem to recall that you were sitting the exam too...
Let's keep our fingers crossed

Definitely May Feb 3, 2010

They usually arrive around the first week in May, in my experience.

Maybe things have got a bit quicker in recent years, but personally I wouldn't be prepared to bet on that icon_smile.gif

Good luck.

Indeed Lisa. I took the exam in Madrid on the 21st (English into Spanish). I am also very impatient, but since I also had to wait for the ATA certification results (also 14 weeks), I reckon I got used to the long times.

One way of keeping your mind and heart busy about this could be to set a new goal: what other exam can you/would you like to take and what preparation is needed? Using this time for that might make total sense as this kind of exams have these very long advance registration times, etc.

Still waiting... Apr 23, 2010

Hi guys. Still waiting. Oh my goodness. If after waiting for so long I did not pass, I am going to need to buy myself some very expensive gift to cheer up!icon_smile.gif And if I pass, I will have to pay a lunch at a fairly exclusive restaurant in town with my colleagues in the office. So one way or the other I will have to give away a wad of euros.

Should not take long now, I reckon. 14 weeks since the day of the exam is a week from now.

Good luck with the results everyone!

Patience... Apr 23, 2010

Tomás, in a fit of impatience, I phoned them last week and they said the results would be sent in early May.

Oh my. Well, then I think it will be mid-May in my case since --as far as I am aware--, IOL sends the results to the examination centres first, who then send them to the candidates.

Good. Let's try to forget about it for some two weeks more...icon_smile.gif
