IELTS One Skill Retake 2023: How Will It Help Study Abroad Aspirants?

Share this post

Are you planning to study abroad and recently wrote the IELTS exam but did not get your desired band? Do not worry. Test takers can opt for IELTS One Skill Retake to improve their scores. Currently, students who want to improve their scores have to retake the entire test for all the modules (speaking, listening, reading and writing).

All the components of the test including score validity, pattern and criteria remains the same as the original test. Hence, there are no issues that would critically resist the test takers.

Why is the IELTS One Skill Retake Option Being Introduced?

Every year millions of study abroad aspirants from India take the IELTS to get admission in top universities abroad and obtain work visas or get permanent residencies. IELTS is accepted by all key immigration authorities and over 11,000 organisations in English speaking countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and the UK.

IELTS scores are calculated on a band scale of 1-9. The final score is determined by taking the mean score of all four modules. Universities set an IELTS cut off for different courses based on certain parameters. You need to meet the IELTS cut off to fetch admission to their dream university. Most of the organisations require a minimum of 6 in all four IELTS sections and the overall score above 6.5.

Taking account of the above requirements from organisations, the IELTS conducting bodies have been investigating ways to ensure the fairness of the exam. On popular demand from the test takers, academic inputs from experts and valid research, IDP decided to launch the permit for IELTS One Skill Retake.

Why Opt for IELTS Single Module Retake?

IELTS One Skill Retake, often known as IELTS Single Module Retake, is beneficial as you will not have to go through the pressure of appearing for the whole exam again. The pressure of clearing the test may have a potentially negative impact on you that can be offset by the IELTS One Skill Retake model. It will also be a cost-effective option as you needn’t spend an amount for the entire exam, instead one skill only.

“With the right preparation and support we know our test takers achieve the best score the first time round. However, we listened to our test-takers, and they told us they wanted the opportunity to retake one section of the test if they didn’t get the score they were aspiring for on test day. With One Skill Retake, test-takers can get their study, migration or work applications back on track,” Warwick Freeland, Managing Director of IELTS IDP Education told the Economic Times. 

More details about the IELTS Single Module retake exam, the cost, the pattern and all information regarding the IELTS One Skill Retake will be provided nearing the time of launch by the IELTS conducting bodies. Keep reading LeapScholar blogs for the latest updates on IELTS Single Module Retake.
