British Council IELTS One Skill Retake 2024 (Explained)

Big Announcement by British Council. The British Council IELTS One Skill Retake is a new scheme launched by the British Council in 2023 through which you can appear in a single module to improve your score without retaking the full test. For example, you have got 7 bands in three modules but got 5 in one module. Then instead of giving the full test again, you can appear in one module only. This is called IELTS One Skill Retake.

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. This scheme has been launched in a few countries but will be available worldwide by the end of 2023. Most universities accept this IELTS One-skill retake test.
