IELTS in South Africa was described by W, who bought my study book Target Band 7 2 weeks ago. W and I exchanged a couple of emails and she kindly shared everything she remembered about her Academic exam plus some advice for people who are yet to take their exams. I swear I didn’t bribe her to write this 🙂 .
“Life is good, and especially good with the EXAM behind me! Wow, what a relief …
I followed your advice. My tips to everyone:
I managed to complete all sections with time to spare.
Thanks again for all your encouragement and wonderful tips.”
