What is IELTS One Skill Retake? 

IELTS One Skill Retake helps you get your desired test score without retaking the full test. If you didn’t show your full potential on test day in one of the four skills (Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking), IELTS One Skill Retake can help you get back on track by simply retaking one of the skills.
