IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is an English Language proficiency test that is trusted by the Immigration Refugees Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) to assess the language abilities of a non-native speaker. Recognized as one of the most prominent language tests in the world, an IELTS test result is indispensable if you are looking to migrate or work in Canada.

"One Skill Retake” has been introduced to assist you feel more assured and secured about your IELTS test. IELTS One Skill Retake can help you get back on track if you didn't perform to your best on test day in any of the four abilities (Listening, ReadingWriting, or Speaking).

Any test centre that offers the IELTS One Skill Retake is the place where you can opt to take the test. India is among many countries that currently have an option for One Skill Retake.


What is ‘One Skill Retake’ & how does it work?

A unique approach to help you realize your potential and demonstrate your complete command of English language is the IELTS One Skill Retake. If you need to work on a particular module, you can now choose to retake just that module only — be it Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking—instead of the entire four using the IELTS One Skill Retake option. Although most individuals receive the necessary scores on their first attempt, if you believe you did not perform to the best of your ability in any area, the IELTS One Skill Retake can help you get back on the track.

IELTS One Skill Retake is available for General Training and Academic IELTS.
