How Raj raised his IELTS score from 6.5 to 7.5

Today we are happy to share the success story of Raj, a young man in his 20s from India. Raj is a native Tamil speaker, who needed to pass IELTS with at least Band 7 for his immigration application. In his previous attempt Raj couldn’t score higher than Band 6.5, and so he began searching for help online. He found, purchased our e-book Ace the IELTS in the end of November, began studying and 3 weeks later took the test again, this time scoring Band 7.5 Overall, with an 8 in the Listening section.

Here’s what he wrote to us right after receiving his IELTS results:

“Hi IELTS-Blog Team,Band 7.5 in IELTS

I’m extremely happy to inform you guys that I got the required score in IELTS today.

Listening 8, Reading 7.5, Writing 7, Speaking 7, Overall Band Score 7.5

I needed 7 in each sub test to support my Immigration application. In my previous attempt, I scored 6.5 only in each module. With the help of your materials and tips given by the writing correction team, I got to know my mistakes and corrected them in my last attempt.

I would like to thank you all once again for all your help. After seeing the care and support you show to test takers, I must say that you guys are doing a service, not business.

Please keep it up and help others. Thanks.”

No wonder that will such a good score Raj became one of the winners in our monthly results competition. When we asked him what would be his advice to other test takers, he said:

“I strongly believe that practice is the key to success in IELTS. Before sitting the IELTS exam, I assessed myself and did more than 20 sample tests.

I subscribed to the Writing correction service at and found out my most frequent mistakes. Also I read “Learn from the Examiner” materials provided by and tuned my way of presentation.

I would suggest to test takers to practice at least 10-15 sample tests and read all the materials provided by”
