If you plan to sit for IELTS One Skill Retake and want to know how you will get your results, we have all the information you need below.

How do I get my IELTS One Skill Retake results?

After completing your IELTS One Skill Retake test, you will receive a new Test Report Form (TRF) with your updated IELTS One Skill Retake score. It also includes the scores of your original test and an overall CEFR score.

This means you will have two separate Test Report Forms: 

  • the original Test Report Form (TRF) with your original scores
  • the new Test Report Form (TRF) containing the One Skill Retake score. 

You can then decide whether to use your new or old scores. Your results are valid for two years from the original test date, which you can find on your Test Report Forms.
