Rim’s Inspiring IELTS Success Story

IELTS High Scorer's Advice Band 7 Tips May 2024

Getting ready for IELTS can feel overwhelming, especially if you’re not using English daily. Let’s look at Rim’s journey, a determined student from an Arabic-speaking country, where French is more commonly used than English. Rim turned to for guidance and achieved remarkable results.

Living in Tunisia, with French as the second language, Rim had been studying English for 12 years but rarely used it. When she decided to take IELTS, she wasn’t sure how to prepare and found by searching “how to study for IELTS”. Despite a pause in studying for personal reasons, Rim persevered. She took the test and scored a Band 7 overall, with an impressive Band 8 in Listening.

Reflecting on her experience, Rim thought about what might have been if she had been able to continue her studies. But at the same time she was proud of her performance, knowing she had made the most of her situation.

Rim has some encouraging words for anyone else feeling unsure about taking the IELTS: “For anyone feeling intimidated by the IELTS, or doubting their abilities, I say just go for it. Don’t underestimate yourself or what you have in mind. Our potential can really surprise us.”

Rim’s story isn’t just about passing a test. Its about pushing through doubts and using every resource at your disposal to overcome challenges. Your determination combined with our support provided via is all it takes to meet your goals – or excel beyond expectations!

If you’re preparing for the IELTS, remember – you’re capable of amazing things with the right preparation and mindset. Get in touch if you need any help.

Congratulations to Rim on achieving a Band 7 overall – with an impressive 8 in Listening!
