  1. Hi Simone! Exactly the same set of questions we had last August 13 here in Dubai, UAE.

    Let me express my gratitude to you for creating this wonderful blog site. You are helping a lot of students realize their dreams.

    I only had 2 weeks to prepare for my test(with an 8-hour job in between) but with your site and the links, I made use of the remaining days wisely through practice, practice and more practice – the key to success in IELTS.

    I also aim to be included in your list of champions 🙂 I’ll keep you posted when my result comes out before the end of the month.

  2. Hey mrvcfdo, thanks for your words, truly appreciate them. Looking forward to getting your results, you can submit any time – the competition runs every month. I hope you get the score you need!
