IELTS One Skill Retake: show your full potential

We've developed IELTS One Skill Retake to help you feel confident going into your IELTS test. With this new feature, you can retake any one component of the test (Listening, Reading, Writing or Speaking), without having to take a full test.

You're eligible for IELTS One Skill Retake when you have completed a full IELTS on computer test at an eligible test centre, and you've received your IELTS test score. You must take IELTS One Skill Retake within 60 days of your original test date.

Only IELTS offers One Skill Retake, so book your test now.
