We have to find out how these lovely people were able to score so well. All we know at the moment is that Rohan Arora ( Band 8 ) was studying by the book “Ace the IELTS”, and Ibrahim Baris Caglar ( Band 8 ) and Maria Verzosa ( Band 7.5 ) were using our book “Target Band 7″. But we definitely need to know more!
We look forward to hearing from the winners their stories of how they prepared and studied, and what helped them achieve success in IELTS. Anything they wish to share will be posted on IELTS-Blog without delay, so everyone can use the same technique and get a better score in their own exam this month.
