Abraham Lincoln once said “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Looking at the 15 winning IELTS results of December 2016, anyone would agree – these people had an amazing year, and their lives can only get better from this point on!

Palak got Band 7.5 in IELTS, here is how

This post is dedicated to IELTS success of a lovely young lady from India. Palak is a 24 year-old native Hindi speaker, who took her Academic IELTS in November and got an Overall Band 7.5. When she was declared a winner of our monthly IELTS results competition, we asked how she prepared for the exam, and Palak said:

Band 8.5 in IELTS“As an advice for others who are looking forward to attempting IELTS in the near future, the idea is to practice as much as possible. I referred to ‘Target Band 7’ book to achieve the best possible. The book has very good content and definitely helped me a lot.

For speaking and writing the idea is to read through various examples and essays/questions mentioned in the book. The content in the book is more than enough for one to prepare before finally taking IELTS.

For reading, one should read newspapers/novels of their interest. While practicing try and time yourself and complete the questions in time with maximum accuracy.

For listening, I would suggest you to do as many practice tests as possible, because certain tricks of catching the answers will only come with adequate practice.

Apart from this, is the one platform I used to be up to date with the latest questions being asked! Which definitely served me well in preparing for what could be in my kitty too, since certain questions and patterns are bound to repeat.

I would like to thank for helping me achieve a decent score, which will definitely help in my further career growth.”
