Default Can I improve my IELTS score after ITA?

I received an ITA, but my documentation is questionable on a spouse category. If I assume the officer will deduct those points, which will put me below the cut off for the invited round, am I able to make up some points for IELTS and still take this offer? Thank you.

What do you mean ‘documentation is questionable? How many points short do you think you’ll be?

And is it you or your spouse that wants to re-take IELTS?

My spouses ECA is classified as from a non-recognised institute which is really confusing. Because the institute is recognized, but it seems as the course at the time was not registered. I only need 3 points and can either try to get this by re-doing my IELTS or getting spouse to do IELTS, but spouse didn't take IELTS before. Thanks

Do you mean the ECA provider isn't recognised, or where she did her education isn't?

It's similar to this Credential Evaluation - Non Recognized Institution - University and College Education - Discussion Forum (settlement.org)
But rather than calling the course not recognized, they quote the Canadian equivalent i.e. 2 years, but label it as non recognized institution. Furthermore, the course and institute are recognized now (if you do the same thing in 2023 for example). So to avoid any risk, could I try increasing my IELTS, or do I have to suck it up and decline this ITA :-( Thanks
