IELTS - do I need a certified copy or the original?

Hi all,

This may be a very easy question for the gurus of the forum but I am personally confused with it.
Do we have to certify the IELTS test results (application for 186 - direct entry) or do we just upload the originals? If yes, is it the British consulate that does this certification?
Thanks again for your kind help.

This is what the immigration website says,

You need to provide documents to support your application for this visa. We can make a decision using the information you provide when you lodge your application. It is in your interest to provide as much information as possible with your application.

Provide certified copies of original documents. Do not include original documents unless we specifically ask for them. Documents not in English must be accompanied by accredited English translations.

Use this checklist to make sure your application is complete.

Upload scans of your documents when you lodge your application online. Do not send us physical copies of documents through the mail unless we ask you to send them.

So, if you are applying online, just scan n upload.
