From March 2023 students will have the provision to retake the IELTS for one component if they did not get the desired score on the first attempt. 

The organising body will put this decision into action from March 2023.

Currently, the system requires students to take the entire test again for all four modules: listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

Now, if a student is not satisfied with their band score, they do not have to take the entire test again, instead they can give test for only one or two component out of four. 

This will provide flexibility to students in meeting the application requirements for foreign universities.
