How did they score so well?
We’re always trying to find out from the winners how they did it. So far we have discovered that Hui An Huang (Band 8.5) used our writing correction and speaking assessment services. Angelica Carballo (Band 8) and Leonardo Giontella used our recommended book ‘Target Band 7’ and did lots of practice tests from the “High Scorer’s Choice” series. Being able to contribute to their success feels amazing!
As for the other winners – we would love to hear from you! Please be kind to the test takers who are still preparing for their IELTS exams. Do share your stories and tell us how you studied, and what helped you do so well in IELTS. Any useful tips will be shared on IELTS-Blog.com, so everyone can use the same technique and get a better score in their own exam this month.
