One of the accepted English language tests for immigration, the International English Testing System (IELTS) has introduced a new feature called One Skill Retake (OSR).
IELTS OSR permits test-takers to retake only one of the four skills if they need to improve in only one area. In other words, test-takers may now retake one of the four skills on the IELTS exam: Listening, Reading, Writing, or Speaking. Previously, test-takers who did not meet the score requirements for migration were had to retake the full exam for all four modules.
Department will accept IELTS test results that include OSR, except for applications for subclass 476, 482, and 485. These three subclasses still require IELTS test scores from a single sitting/attempt.
