IELTS One Skill Retake now available in Cambodia

IELTS test takers preparing to take the world’s most popular English language test can now access a new feature to help them attain the score they need to achieve their global learning and career goals.

Now available in Cambodia, IELTS One Skill Retake enables IELTS on Computer test takers to retake one of the four skills – Listening, Reading, Writing or Speaking – if they did not achieve the score they aimed for the first time around.

IELTS One Skill Retake is currently accepted by the Australian Department of Home Affairs and Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency, as well as an increasing number of Australian universities and institutions.

Mao Sreng, Cambodia Country Director at IDP Education, said the launch of IELTS One Skill Retake gives test takers a second opportunity to achieve their study, migration or work goals.

“We listened to our test takers who told us that instead of having to retake the whole test, they wanted the ability to retake one skill of the IELTS test if they didn’t get the score they were aiming for on test day.

“IELTS One Skill Retake – which is available for both Academic and General IELTS tests – gives test takers in Cambodia a new option and increased flexibility as they get their plans on track.

“IELTS One Skill Retake is currently available at the IDP IELTS Cambodia Official Test Centre in Phnom Penh,” he said.

Test takers who choose an IELTS One Skill Retake will receive a second Test Report Form (TRF) that can be used for migration and study purposes.

Depending on their score, test takers can choose whether they would like to use their old or new TRF for the skill they retook.

Test takers should note that IELTS One Skill Retake is currently not recognised for migration or study for countries other than Australia.

IELTS is working with organisations from other countries to accept IELTS One Skill Retake, and test takers are advised to keep an eye on the IELTS website for updates as they are announced.

Warwick Freeland, IELTS Managing Director at IDP Education, said this new option demonstrates IELTS ’commitment to helping customers achieve their best scores and to supporting organisations to attract the right candidates.

“IELTS One Skill Retake improves fairness by providing an opportunity to retake a single skill if the test taker feels their original performance was not representative of their language proficiency level.

“Organisations that accept IELTS One Skill Retake can offer their candidates the flexibility to achieve entry requirements without compromising on applicant quality.

“We are proud of this initiative that reinforces our commitment to helping test takers achieve their full potential,” he said.
