Hear what our Test Takers have to say about IELTS One Skill Retake
IELTS One Skill Retake helps test takers and also gives you a sense of calm and assurance to know that you can retake one skill. I would recommend IELTS because it’s widely accepted, recognised worldwide and gives the chance to retake one skill.
I am happy that IELTS is offering One Skill Retake, because it allowed me to register as a nurse in Australia. I am very delighted that I was able to take One Skill Retake for my assessment in Australia. It helped me register as a nurse here. I was able to focus on only one test component and was able to achieve my desired score. IELTS One Skill Retake is a very good option.
