Peggy - iPass student of the month

Peggy first joined iPass in September 2016, having already taken the Academic IELTS test 4 times previously. Her target was band 7 in each sub-test but each time she just fell short in the writing and/or speaking test with either 6 or 6.5.

Peggy initially took the IELTS Lite course but later enrolled on the Speaking & Writing Plus course so that she could focus primarily on improving those two skills.

It was not an easy road for Peggy but she was determined to achieve her goal. She took the test again in January and while her speaking score went up to band 7, her writing scored remained at 6.5. Undeterred, she kept practising and continued improving and took the test again two more times in March and April.

The March results were initially disappointing with 7 in Writing this time but only 6.5 in Speaking. Peggy applied for a remark of her speaking score but went on and took a subsequent test in April. This time she did it with band 7 in both speaking and writing and 7.5 overall. However, the good news did not end there because later that month she got the results of her EOR which saw her speaking score from March get upgraded from 6.5 to 7.5 - a complete band score!!

On a personal note, I was really thrilled for Peggy because we had worked so hard together on improving her speaking and despite the disappointments she did not give up because she knew that she was capable of reaching the required level. As anyone who has taken IELTS before knows, proving your level in all 4 skills in the same test is not easy, but with the right guidance and support and a lot of hard work and determination it is possible - and Peggy is definitely proof of that.

Everyone on the iPass team wishes her a very bright future ahead!

It is my pleasure to recommend iPass IELTS to everyone who wants to succeed on IELTS.

When I received my previous IELTS result, I was disappointed and frustrated. Generally, it seemed impossible for me to improve from my speaking score of 6 to 7 within a month. But I had to try my best, so I enrolled on the IELTS exam on 28 February. During the first two weeks, I borrowed some books from the library and downloaded from the Internet. Also, I watched numerous videos online. It was very difficult and annoying for me to find the most important and concise information. Simply, I was overloaded with information and I felt very tired and exhausted. Frankly, my speaking had not been improved by that time.

Mercifully, I found http://www.ipassielts.com and subscribed on the IELTS Speaking Plus course. It contains very useful and precise information for IELTS preparation. More importantly, the encouragement and feedback from an IELTS expert like Nigel were invaluable to me. Consequently, I managed to get a band score of 7 on speaking.
