How did they prepare for IELTS?

Some of the winners relied on our services and materials: Mihir and Prabu used our writing correction service, Maria learnt techniques and strategies from Target Band 7 book, and Samuel used our practice tests.

In addition, Mihir was subscribed to our daily emails with IELTS questions – and it helped! He said,

“All of the questions that were asked to me were exactly same as the ones mailed by you guys earlier. I had practiced all of the questions over the past 2 months and I cannot stress this enough, Thank You for everything! I got a band score 8, all because of you guys!”

Samuel, too, credited our website with helping him get his target scores. He said,

“I just want to thank you guys at for the great work that you do. Your materials and advice was really helpful to me in achieving the scores I needed in both the general and academic modules. You are all wonderful and much appreciated.”

The winners of this competition are fighting the good fight – against inertia, hopelessness and negativity. They found the gift of motivation within themselves and are giving it to us all, at a time when we really need it.

We would love to hear from our winners, because anything that helped them achieve success in IELTS, can help YOU, too! Their advice, as soon as we get it, will be posted on IELTS-Blog without delay, so everyone can use the same technique and get a better score in their own exam.

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

This is how Oluwaseun increased his IELTS score from Band 6 to 7.5

Everyone, meet Oluwaseun – a young man from Nigeria who won in our IELTS results competition. He took IELTS 3 times and increased his writing score from Band 6 to 7.5. We asked Oluwaseun to share his best preparation tips – and he kindly replied.

“IELTS is a test, not a death sentence”, says Oluwaseun, and goes on to explain how his positive mindset and determination resulted in a substantial increase to his score.

“It’s my third IELTS. In the first attempt, I didn’t do well in Writing. I had just Band 6.0. So I had to retake it.

However, I had 7.5 and 7.0 in Writing in the second and third attempts respectively. The second was General, while the third was Academic.

I specially owe my success story in the last two attempts to the Writing Correction Service, which I stumbled upon while searching online for help. I followed as many of the instructions in the guide as I could. I subscribed to the Writing Correction Service and kept practicing on sample answer sheets, doing Writing Tasks 1 and 2. I’d turn them over to the team and get feedback from them. At times, my results were amazing, other times I got disappointed whenever the results came out otherwise. But I kept practicing more in such cases, and submitted my best response the next time.

I subscribed to IELTS-Blog on YouTube and four others for virtual learning, especially on Writing Task 1. This was very helpful.

My advice

  • Get your materials from a reputable blog or team like
  • Practice hard, don’t be discouraged when your result turns out bad, but do more practice instead!
  • Know your weaknesses and adopt strategies for improving in those areas.

Stay hopeful!”
