Catarina - iPass student of the month


Catarina was preparing for IELTS in order to study Business Administration at a UK university. She had two offers but needed an overall 6.5 for her first choice and an overall band 6 for her second choice.

With only one month to prepare for her test, she joined the IELTS LITE course and studied intensively before taking her exam on 18 August. She found both the reading and writing tests difficult and did not have high hopes of getting the scores she needed, especially for her first choice place at Loughborough University.

But she studied hard, took all the feedback on board that she was given by the writing tutors especially and managed to get the 6.5 she needed to study a degree in business at Loughborough. She was absolutely thrilled with her results, especially the band 7 in speaking which she didn’t expect, but as we always say at iPass, as tutors we can only do so much. The real hard work and determination comes from the student!

We wish Catarina every success with her studies and her future career in business!

​First of all, I would like to thank Jenny and the iPass team for making it possible for me to clear the IELTS exam.

It was only because of their guidance and efforts on the Writing Plus course that I was able to score 7.5 in the IELTS writing test.

The feedback I received from the tutors helped me to improve my score from 6.5 to 7.5. They assess exactly the same way as IELTS examiners do.

Thank you so much Jenny and your team for this wonderful experience!!
