    My IELTS score exactly meets the standard requirement (overall 7 with 6.5+ in all sections). From an admissions perspective, would an IELTS score that is higher than the standard requirement increase the chance of getting selected?

    Note: I am not factoring in GRE score, GPA and SoP at the moment (for admissions)..... Just want to know if I should retake the test.
