IELTS has welcomed Immigration New Zealand’s approval of IELTS One Skill Retake as an accepted English language test for people looking to study, work, or migrate to New Zealand.

Immigration New Zealand is responsible for border security and immigration to New Zealand.

IELTS One Skill Retake enables test takers to retest one of the four IELTS skills (Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking) if they did not achieve the score they desired in one section of the test the first time. This provides test takers with a more flexible option than retaking the entire four-skills test.

IELTS One Skill Retake is designed to give IELTS test takers a second opportunity to achieve the score they need for their study, migration, and work goals if they feel their original performance was not representative of their language proficiency.

IELTS One Skill Retake is now available at selected IELTS test centres in more than 110 countries. Find out more about IELTS One Skill Retake.
