The big question on everyone’s mind now is “How did they do it?”, but only our winners can answer it. We could learn so much more from their actual advice, things they learned while preparing for their exams can be very useful! So we look forward to hearing the stories of how they studied, and what techniques 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.

P.S. IELTS results competition runs every month, and everyone is welcome to participate. Learn how to enroll here.
