雅思 IELTS 將於 2022年 11月進行一項重大的變革。
在澳洲首都的IDP考試中心首度推出“One Skill Retake”政策。如果你的雅思某個單項成績沒有達到目標分數，將可以單獨重考這一個單項測驗。
IDP Education 雅思董事總經理弗里蘭Warwick Freeland 表示：在聽取了考生的建議之後，他們引入了“One Skill Retake”。
根據IDP官網目前的介紹，One Skill Retake這項政策有幾個重點：
IELTS to introduce One Skill Retake
Giving test takers a second opportunity to demonstrate their full potential.
Test takers of the world’s most popular high-stakes language test, IELTS, will soon have access to a new feature to help them boost the score they need to achieve their global learning and career goals.
Expected to be available in November at limited IDP IELTS centres in Australian capital cities, One Skill Retake will enable test takers to retake one section of the four skills (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking) English test if they did not achieve the score they aimed for the first time around.
Warwick Freeland, Managing Director – IELTS, IDP Education, said One Skill Retake has been introduced after listening to test taker feedback.
“With the right preparation and support, we know our test takers achieve their best score the first time around,” Mr Freeland said.
“However, we listened to our test takers and they told us they wanted the opportunity to retake one section of the test if they didn’t get the score they were aspiring for on test day,” he said.
“With One Skill Retake, test takers can get their study, migration or work applications plans back on track,” he said.
In its first launch phase, the test takers who choose a One Skill Retake will receive a second Test Report Form that can be used for migration and study purposes by the Australian Department of Home Affairs.
Mr Freeland said One Skill Retake demonstrates IELTS’ commitment to helping customers achieve their best scores and to supporting organisations to attract the right candidates.
“When it is launched, organisations that accept the One Skill Retake will be able to offer their candidates the flexibility to achieve entry requirements without compromising on applicant quality,” Mr Freeland said.
“We are proud of this initiative that reinforces our commitment to helping test takers achieve their full potential,” he said.
One Skill Retake will be initially introduced in Australia in November. More information will be available in early November.
這項政策 One Skill Retake 對於單科總是卡關的考生來說，無疑地是個好消息！早在2019年，托福就已經推出了 Best Score的政策，可到後來很多大專院校並不承認拼分的成績。
而雅思目前的這個One Skill Retake政策，對考生來說會帶來多大的福利？什麼時候會推行到其他國家？是否所有學校都接受？錄取分數要求會不會跟著變高？等等一系列的問題還有待確定。
