How did they score so well?
We’re always trying to find out from the winners how they did it. It’s great to see our students winning! Reza Zaeri (Band 8) used our writing correction service to find out how to increase his score. Dmitrii Kiselev (Band 8) relied on our book Target Band 7 to learn important IELTS techniques and then used several ‘High Scorer’s Choice’ practice tests to apply those techniques and master the skills he learned. Being able to contribute to their success feels amazing!
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 IELTS-Blog.com, so everyone can use the same technique and get a better score in their own exam this month.
