How did they score so well?

It feels amazing to see our student take the first place!

Loris used the book Target Band 7 and our practice tests in his exam preparation and loved them so much that he wrote a 5-star review for every book. After receiving his IELTS score he certainly wasn’t disappointed – this email says it all:

“I’ve already taken the test and got an 8.0! I’m so happy about that, I didn’t expect that result. Thank you so much again for helping me.”

Another student of ours, Amirshox, took IELTS on computer and prepared for it on our IELTS Online Prep platform, because it provides a very close simulation of the computer-based IELTS, in terms of look and feel, functions, task types and difficulty level. Amirshox was thrilled when he received his IELTS results – Band 7.5 was exactly what he needed!

As for the other winners – we would love to hear from you, because when you share your stories and tell us how you studied, you are helping thousands of test takers, preparing for their exams right now. Any useful tips will be posted on, so that everyone can use the same technique and get a better score in their own exam this month.
