IELTS One Skill Retake

As recently announced by IDP IELTS, it is now possible for some candidates from some test centres to retake a single component of the test; Listening, Reading, Writing or Speaking, without having to redo all four sections.

IELTS One Skill Retake must be booked within 60 days of the original test date. In New Zealand, IELTS One Skill Retake is currently only available if you sat IELTS on computer at an eligible IELTS test centre.

At the time of writing* these test centres include the following:

Unitec IELTS – Auckland

*More eligible test centres are expected to be added to the list soon.

IDP IELTS reports that ‘IELTS One Skill Retake is accepted by Immigration New Zealand, universities, and professional bodies. Across the world, the governments of Australia, Canada, and the UK, as well as many universities across Australia now accept IELTS One Skill Retake.’
