Effective as of May 1st, 2006 the 90-day retake policy regarding candidates who must redo their IELTS was amended.
The restriction on re-taking IELTS within 90 days will be removed and candidates will be able to repeat the test whenever they wish. All candidates from 1 May will be able to repeat at the next available test, regardless of the date of their previous test.
Candidates will continue to be asked to specify on their application form whether they have taken the test before. This information appears on the Test Report Form and will be used solely for monitoring purposes.
