If an institution/course is not listed then it’s not registered as using the test as part of its admissions process. Results cannot be released to unregistered institutions. Please contact the institution and if they wish to receive results, ask them to contact us to become registered.

Yes, you can submit a Results Enquiry. For more information, and to fill in an online form, please see the Results Enquiries section of our Useful documents page.
For certain tests, if a candidate thinks a Malpractice case or a Results Enquiry outcome was incorrectly handled, they can submit an Appeal. For more information, and to fill in an online form, please see the Appeals section of our Useful documents page.
If there is a change to your results before you share them with your chosen institution(s), this will be reflected in the results as they appear on Metritests. If your results change after you have shared them with the institution(s), you will need to tell the institution(s) that your results have changed as they may have already seen your original result. You may want to inform the institution in advance that you have made a Results Enquiry or Appeal if your results have already been passed to them.
