IELTS International Language Testing System

What is IELTS ?


The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help you work, study or migrate to a country where English is the native language. There are two types of IELTS: Academic and General Training. The Listening, Reading and Writing sections of all IELTS tests are completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them.

The Speaking section, however, may be scheduled up to a week before or after the other tests. The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes.

One Skill Retake OSR

What is IELTS One Skill Retake, and how does it work?

IELTS One Skill Retake is a new feature designed to help you get your desired test score without retaking the full test. If you want to improve your score on one test skill, you can retake any of the four IELTS skills – Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking. 

Benefits of taking IELTS One Skill Retake

Focus on one skill: If you didn’t do your best in the first test, One Skill Retake gives you a second chance to show your English level and improve your score in one section without having to retake the full test. Save time and money by only doing the part of the test related to one skill rather than testing all four skills again.

Take a test, you know: IELTS One Skill Retake follows the same format and timing as the regular IELTS test. This means you will already be familiar with the test. You don’t need to worry about preparing for a new exam and learning different task types.

Receive a new Test Report Form: You will receive a new IELTS Test Report Form with your IELTS One Skill Retake score. It also includes the scores from your original test and an overall CEFR score. Your results will be valid for two years from the original test date, which you can find on your Test Report Form.

Your original test scores will remain the same: There will be no change to your other scores from your original test. And once you’ve received your results, if you would prefer to use your original score, you can. 

Conditions to book IELTS One Skill Retake  

You can book the test if you’ve recently completed a full IELTS on computer test.

You must also have received your results from a test centre that offers IELTS One Skill Retake. 

You can only retake one skill once per original test, and you must sit the One Skill Retake within 60 days of your original test.
