The format and timing of that IELTS One Skill Retake test are the same as those for a normal IELTS test.

Candidates can book an IELTS One Skill Retake for 60 days after the original test and are allowed only one retake for each full IELTS test. This means that they cannot retake the test in more than one component.

After the retake, the candidates will receive a new test report form which will display the updated IELTS result - the new score for one skill and the scores for the other three skills in the original test. Candidates can choose whether to use the original or the new test report form.
