Dear winners, some serious congratulations are in order! To celebrate your big achievements we’re sending your special certificates to your emails. Your IELTS results will be displayed in the IELTS-Blog hall of fame – please feel free to show off to your family and friends!

So, what did our winners do to get these scores? Here is what we know so far: Hanson Fuh used these practice tests to lift his score from Band 6.5 to Band 8 (yes, you read that right!). Pushpendu Talukder prepared using our book ‘Ace the IELTS‘, he didn’t have much time but he read the tips and trained himself using the 10 practice tests we provide with the book, and it worked.

But what about the other winners? Surely they can share some practical tips that helped them, and can help others score higher. This is why we’re asking all the winners to send us their stories of how they prepared and studied, and what 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.
