  1. Dear Liz,
    I have just recieved my results:

    L 8.5
    R 8.5
    W 8
    S 8
    O 8.5

    I was really nervous about the test as I am currently applying for my dream university (needed a 7.5). But I am extremely pleased with the results and just want to thank you! I lost some points in speaking for my paralysing nervosity, but I was especially insecure about the writing part, since the test style is quite specific…so I learned with your videos and they just helped me tremendously!!! I’m really grateful! Whenever anyone talks about IELTS I am going to recommend your lessons right away!

    Please keep up the terrific work – many dreams depend on teachers like you!


  2. Hi Liz,

    I had taken General module exam on 16th Dec, 2017 in Bengaluru, India. My results were withheld for 18days and finally got it on 17th Jan. I got L-8.5, R-9, W-7, S-7 with Overall band 8. I must thank you for your notes and tips which helped me in achieving this score. Your blog is a perfect place for anyone who wants to crack IELTS with any desired scores. It helps thousands of students and prefessionals across the world to achieve their goals. We all definitely owe you.


  3. 1st attempt

    2nd attempt
    I applied for EOR because of W6.5 i needed at least L8R7W7S7

    3rd attempt
    The score i needed. 3rd time did it i guess.
    Irrespective, I can’t wait to have my EOR response bcos i feel IELTS did a mistake marking my writing in the 2ND attempt.

    • Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

      • Hi Liz can you please let me know whether our speaking band is marked by examiner or it is being marked by British Council or IDP authorities after listening our recording? The reason I am raising this question is because my examiner was taking naps during my test and she even sometimes asked me same question twice, I’m worried about my marks.

  9. Hi Elizabeth,
    Just wanted to let you know how grateful i am for your efforts. I mean I had no idea where to start my IELTS preparation 3 days before test. But thank God that I stumbled upon your website. Long story short, I managed to get an overall 8.0 band score using your lectures.
    So Thank you & may you keep helping others like me.
    And I really don’t have any tips for anyone except that they should go through your lectures.

  12. Ayush Jain says:

    Dear Elizabeth,
    I gave my IELTS Academic exam on 16th Dec last year in Delhi, IN. I had my end semester exams till 14th Dec and hence had no time to prepare for IELTS. The little time I had, I spent it on your videos. It helped me secure the following band score –
    L – 8.5
    R – 8.5
    W – 7.0
    S – 7.0
    Overall – 8.0

    Thanks for helping me clear IELTS and be eligible to study in UK.

  13. Hi Liz,

    I have got an overall band score of 7.5 (L:7.5, R: 7.5, W:7.5 and S:7). Test Date : 14-Dec-2017
    I have referred to all your videos and training materials on this website and found it very helpful in comparison to the book “The Official Cambridge guide to IELTS”.

    Thank you So much!!


  14. Rajkumari says:

    I gave test on 16 December. L_7.5, R-9,w-7, s-8. Overall_8. I am happy with my score. It was my first attempt and I studied fr 7 days only though 7 hrs per day. My question is do I need to reattempt fr listening although I m happy with my score as I see a few comments saying 8 is required. My speaking questions-tell about a historical movie you watched. Do u like history. If given a chance would you like to study history. Then about inventions. What is greatest invention of mankind. What is the greatest invention at home. What are the disadvantages of invention. This is what I remember. Thank you

  15. My results were the exactly what I had expected walking out of the exam hall.
    I had taken the UKVI IELTS academic on December 16 2017,with less than 2 weeks of preparation and a major panic attack on the day of the exam.I completely blanked out during my writing part due to lack of sleep.I couldn’t even feel my fingers moving.
    The result: L-9 R-9 S-8 W-6.5 O-8
    The only advice I would say is to focus on mastering the IELTS exam taking skills and not waste time on a lot of resources.
    I’m retaking the test in 2 weeks hoping to score the required band this time.

    • Band 8 is a great score, particularly considering how tired you were – well done πŸ™‚ You are 100% correct – students require lots of energy and concentration for the IELTS test πŸ™‚

  16. TARANBIR SINGH says:

    Hi Liz,
    My name is Taran and I recently received my IELTS score as below:

    S8, W 6.5, L 8.5, R 8.5 OVERALL 8 BAND

    I’m quite surprised and disappointed with my writing score. Do you suggest going for a Remark in this case as I need a 7 at the least.

    Taranbir Singh

    • Sorry I’m answering this a bit late. It’s certainly possible to consider a remark if you:
      1. wrote over the word count in task 1 and task 2
      2. wrote an overview for task 1 and a conclusion for task 2

  17. Bhavin Mangukiya says:

    Hi Liz,

    In my first attempt I gave exam on 02 November academic module. Although I went for coaching my score was: L,R,W,S: 7.5, 7.5, 5.5, 6

    Then I solely referred your website and gave exam on 14 December again.
    My score is ….
    Overall: 7.5

    Hence, Thank you very much for this amazing website. I took all your advice on speaking and writing and my score is improved by 2 and 0.5 band respectively.

    I don’t know how to thank you for your exceptional tips and videos.
    Thank you again.

  18. Hi Liz,
    Thank you so much for all the lessons and tips. It really helped. I had my GT exam on 16th of December and my scores are:
    Listening: 8.0
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 7.0
    Speaking: 8.5
    Overall band score: 8.0

    Once again, thanks a ton Liz! πŸ˜ƒ

  19. Hello Liz,

    Thanks for your awesome material and guidance. My scores are as below:


    I am planing to re-take the test to improve my Listening Scores as I need at least 8 in that. The primary challenges which I faced were my short attention span and not able to keep pace with the recording while reading options in “Multiple Choice questions” and “match the Questions with the list of answers”.
    I would be interested in opting for your advance lessons, if they may help me with the above.

    It goes without saying that your lessons were a great resource during the prep.

  20. Hi Liz,

    I just checked my IELTS score and am very happy with the overall score of 8.5
    Here’s the breakdown:
    Listening: 8.5
    Reading: 9.0
    Writing: 7.5
    Speaking: 8.5

    I used your site extensively during my 5 days of preparation and all the tips, videos and comments from other users were very helpful and have contributed to this score. Please keep up the good work and keep helping others like me! πŸ™‚

    You Rock!!

  21. Hello Liz
    I took the GT IELTS test on the 16th of December. My scores are as follows
    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the tips I grasped by religioulsy following your website. You are a great mentor and a very pleasant personality who exudes a lot of positivity and composure.
    Thank you once again

  22. sat for academic on Dec 9th with L7.0, R7.0, S7.5, W7.5; overall7.5

    Prepared in less than 3 weeks and IELTSLIZ was quite instrumental.

    Thanks a lot Liz.

  23. Hi Liz
    I scored 9 in R, 8.5 in L, 8 in S and 7 in W.
    I would like to thank you for all your tips n tricks which helped me to get this score.

    I need to score a min of 8 in each band (GT module). Could you suggest as to how can I improve my writing score

  24. Hello,

    I got overall band 8 in Academic IELTS.
    R= 9
    L= 8.5
    S = 7.5
    w= 7
    I had less than a week to prepare for the examination. Thank you for all the youtube videos and lessons. I could not have scored well in such short period. Thank you so much for your effort and lessons.

  25. Hi Liz
    I took exam on 16th dec n results r just out
    I really want to thank u for guidance n help that u offer

  26. Hi Elizabeth,
    Sadly my score is: L-9 R-8.5 S-8 W-6.5 O-8

    I apologise for being negative but I don’t know whether to believe in conspiracy theory or not. My writing score is horrible and I am sure that I don’t deserve it. Being it the third time, I am stuck with one or other. While I got 7.5 and 8 before, this time, I actually performed better. But well, something in my mind says, IELTS does want me to go ahead and get the required score till I lose all my chances.

    Nonetheless, you and your website have always been my favourite place of practice alone. I can’t thank you more!


  27. Hi Liz,

    Hope you are doing well. I had taken the IELTS GT exam on 16 December, 2017 in Mumbai and am glad to let you know that I have got the band scores I needed in each section..yay πŸ˜€

    Listening: 8.5, Reading: 8, Writing: 7.5, Speaking: 7, Overall: 8

    I am a little disappointed with my speaking score as I was expecting atleast a 7.5. I would like to take this opportunity and thank you for the helpful videos, tips and practice questions…specially the ones on True/False/Not Given.

    You are doing a great job. Thank you and wish you a healthy and peaceful live πŸ˜€

    Your lessons and tips were very useful for the writing, but I did not manage my time well and ended up with no time for checking my questions.

    Hi Liz,

    Writing tips are excellent, especially the structure, flow and tips on connectors, intro and conclusion etc.
    I finally got desired score
    L-8.5, R-7.5, W-7.5 & S-8. Overall 8 band

    Just to update you, my experience with IDP was great. Since I also made a prior attempt with British Council which was a chaos in test organisation and bit rude behaviour.
    IDP study material has better quality content & at the test venue things are very peaceful and systematic.

    Thanks a lot for making things easier to us.

  48. Hi Liz,

    Just wanna highlight my gratitude, for the help I got from you and your website. Before I begin, I’d like to provide some background context. I’m from Malaysia (an ex-British colony and a member Common Wealth country) and although English can be considered my 1st language, we were really taught in Malay in our entire school system. Every subject is taught in Malay with the exception of English (and say Chinese or Tamil in the Chinese/Tamil schools), hence our use of English, though common, isn’t our first language.

    I would’ve thought IELTS would be a breeze, for myself, but having sat for the General Training IELTS in 2012, and scored an overall banding of just 7.0, I know how difficult the Academic IELTS would be. I practiced a lot, but still lack the grasp on basic principles of 2 tasks, Reading and Writing. Then my spouse referred your link to me, and it really help put things into perspective about what each part is about. Your videos are VERY HELPFUL, even though I didn’t manage any 9.0’s, I’m very grateful for the guidance you gave. Especially difficult was the Academic Reading test, too many pages, too little time, and the results shows, BUT on the Writing test, you really help put things in perspective. When I practiced Writing test, short essay, I ended up with 300 words (for the 150 word task), as my attempt turned out to be an editorial with opinions and conclusions. After watching your coaching, it was much clearer what needs to be delivered, definitely not fancy language.

    Anyway, here’s my results:
    Overall Banding : 8.0
    Listening : 8.5
    Reading : 6.5 (which was hell for me, it was very difficult to correctly complete in 1 hour)
    Writing : 8.0
    Speaking: 8.0 (Generally Malaysians in Private sectors have no major problems with this)

    While I’m dissatisfied with the 6.5 in Reading, despite your coaching, I’m happy with my Overall results. Again, much Gratitude owed to you Liz

  49. Credit is all yours…..!!!!😊

    I got my results today. Details below :

    Module : GT (India)
    Overall : 8
    L/R/W/S = 8.5/7.5/7.5/7.5

    Thanks to you. All your materials were very useful.

  53. Hello, Liz! I’m Anna, from Romania and i just got my Ielts results:
    L – 8,5
    R – 8,5
    W – 7,5
    S – 7,5
    Overall score band 8
    I took my exam on the Nov. 25th and it was my first attempt! I used most of your free advice and tutorials, some official Ielts preparation tests and tips and I’d like to thank you for your help as I found the videos and everything very useful. Wish you all the best!

  54. Hi Liz! I’m from the Philippines and my first attempt was last January 2017 but failed to get a 7 in both speaking and writing, and I didn’t bother to have it rechecked since my teacher/friend told me my essay was tangential. I took the exam (academic) again in British Council last 5 October 2017 here in Riyadh KSA and received my results:
    Listening – 8.5
    Reading – 9
    Writing – 6.5
    Speaking – 6.5
    Total Band Score – 7.5
    I was disappointed with my results as I’ve reviewed for several months with a private tutor and availed your advance classes and free materials. I know in my heart that I did my best and opted for an EOR although my teacher said that it’s unlikely that my grades would change, he, too, was devastated with the outcome. Seven excruciating weeks later I finally received my results yesterday:
    Listening – 8.5
    Reading – 9
    Writing – 7
    Speaking – 8
    Total Band Score – 8
    I was in shock when I read my scores. My speaking score jumped by 1.5 band! Writing, too, went up by half a band (the most important part for us nurses). Glory to God! I hope my persistence, patience, and “stubbornness” will inspire others since I haven’t seen any success stories of EOR from the internet or from forums. They’ll also return my money! Thank you Liz for your website and for offering discounts for your advance classes. Your teaching style is straight to the point and was highly recommended by my tutor. You’re heaven sent! Continue to be a blessing to everyone, God bless! :*

    Hi Liz,

    I got my IELTS results.

    Speaking: 8.5
    Listening: 8.5
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 7.5

    This was my second time attempting IELTS since I got a 6.5 for writing last time. I mainly used your online lessons to practice and it helped me a lot. Thank you!

    I am happy with my results, however I am wondering if I should apply for a re-mark to see if I could get a 8.0 for writing. While I was confident with my Task 2 answer I ran out of time to check my Task 1 answer therefore, I believe there should have been some mistakes. Please advice!


  58. Dear Liz, thank you for your wonderful website, great tips and videos

    I am from Malaysia and took my IELTS Academic Module on the 11/11/2017 in Manchester

    L – 8
    R – 7.5
    W – 7
    S – 7
    Overall 7.5

    My first attempt was in August 2017 (Manchester) – unfortunately I only managed to score an overall of 6 band score in spite of 4 weeks of preparation.
    For the 2nd attempt i had less than 3 weeks to study – I kept practicing using previous and new mock questions, watching your YouTube videos and at the same time Try to Identify my weaknesses.
    After the exam ended this time I was worried and concerned that I will not achieved the desired band score as I find that the question was harder compared to the last exam and there were moments that I lost my concentration especially during the listening and reading session as I did not slept well the night before
    Things that I learned:
    Keep practicing
    Identify your weak areas – try to improve it
    Manage your time wisely
    Get enough sleep
    Try and try again

  59. Hi Liz, I’d my ielts GT test on 11 Nov and I got an overall 8 (L8, R9, W7, S8). Thank you so much for all the resources you’ve put together on the website. I’ve also purchased your advanced lessons on writing. They helped me a lot. Thanks.

    Thank you again and best of luck!

  63. Vikesh Sukheja says:

    I received my test scores today for Ielts. I got an overall of 8 bandscore (L-8.5 R-8 W-7 S-8). I am really pleased with my results since I only had a week’s time to prepare.

    I would really like to thank you LIZ, I prepared using this site and Cambridge book. This site is of great help. Despite giving Ielts for the first time, I felt as if I knew everything, again thanks to you.

    I struggled a bit with writing and on the other hand listening, reading and speaking went well which is well reflected with the scores.

    I gave exam through IDP and they were very very supportive during whole exam process.

    Thanks and all the best to you personally. You are doing great job.

  64. Hello everyone,

    I just got my results for my IELTS Academic that I attempted on 28th October 2017. I scored an overall score of 8.5. (Listening – 9, Reading – 9, Writing – 7.5 and Speaking 8).

    Most of my thanks goes to LIZ for her Youtube videos for my speaking and writing tests. I wish I had gone through her videos earlier and also taken time to practice more. Although I did not complete my writing test I managed to score 7.5. I would not have scored this high without her tips and advice. I followed her tips for the speaking test and scored an 8 without much practice.

    So thank you very much!

  65. Hi Liz,
    Listening 8.5
    Reading 7
    Writing: 7.5
    Speaking 8
    Thanks soo much for your lessons. I purchased your writing lessons and I must say they were very helpful indeed. My overall score band score was 8.0
    I had a little difficulty with my reading with respect to time management. Spent too much time on the first reading it affected the others as I had to rush through the remaining. And of course in a state of panick even if the questions are easy, it becomes difficult to concentrate and answer correctly. I hope all will take the issue of time management very seriously. All the same, i got a great deal of information, tips and confidence from your website. Thank you.

  66. Alright.. Here is my story of IELTS!

    First attempt scores:

    Listening: 8
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 6.5
    Speaking: 7

    I must say that I was devastated to see my score in Writing because I was more than sure that I will excel in both Writing and Speaking. Being a blogger myself, instead of spending time on Writing and Speaking, I did practice lot of Listening and Reading. And you can see that I managed to do well on those areas.

    What one needs to know about IELTS Writing is that IELTS does not care how ‘interesting’ly you are able to write. Perhaps, you should focus on adapting your style to what is called as ‘IELTS Writing’. Learn how to do well on the 4 parameters that IELTS expects you to be good at.

    After my first attempt, I did buy Liz’s Advanced Lessons and it is not a secret anymore that that they are super good. πŸ™‚

    Below are my scores:

    Listening: 8.5
    Reading: 9
    Writing: 7
    Speaking: 8

    Good luck to all of you!

  67. Hi Liz,
    got my results a few days ago:
    L: 7.5
    R: 8
    W: 7
    S: 8.5
    Overall 8

    I am very happy with the results, as reading went terribly wrong and I almost left during the exam 😁 I struggled with text 2 and 3 and totally panicked, so when the time was almost up I made a wild guess in the last 10 minutes to write down the remaining 20 answers, as I hoped I would hopefully get at least a few points extra. As you can imagine I was more than surprised to see 8 for reading.
    Now I am wondering if there was a mistake during the correction process that lead to this unexpected result.
    Do you think this is likely? I don’t know how the correction process is structured, just wondering A LOT.

  68. Hi Liz, checked my result online. Did the test on the 2nd of November, and here are the scores below;
    Speaking: 7:5
    Writing; 7:5
    Listening; 9
    Reading; 8.5
    Overall; 8
    All thanks to you Liz!!! You’re a great teacher. With my result I’m good to go. Thank you!

  69. Hi Liz,
    Thanks a bunch for the wonderful guidance and study material. Earlier i didn’t know that we can share our score over here so I didn’t know how to thank you. Fortunately I found this link today. I took the test on 29th of July and I got the required bands thanks to you. My requirement was 7 in each module except for listening in which I needed 8.
    My score is: L-9.0, R-9.0, writing-7.0 and Speaking-7.5. Overall-8.0
    Thanks again.
    Keep up the good work.

  70. Neeraja Sankaranarayanan says:

    Hi Liz,

    You are really an amazing teacher and you lessons have helped me so much. My scores are
    Over all : 8
    Listening 9
    Reading 8.5
    Speaking 7
    Writing 7
    Thank you so much. πŸ™‚ I have passed on your lessons to many of my friends ho are attempting IELTS in the near future.
    God bless you! πŸ™‚

  71. Hi Liz…

    I appeared for my IELTS for the first time on October 28 and i scored an overall 8. Thank you Liz for the excellent tips, materials including sample questions for each section. They were all very helpful.

    My scores are :
    Listening – 7.5
    Reading – 8.5
    Speaking – 8
    Writing – 7.5

    Overall – 8

    I didn’t devote much time for Listening probably because i gave two practice tests when started preparing for it and got about 39 out of 40 correct. I messed up the listening during the exam where in i missed out a couple of questions and got tensed, somehow i regained some composure to get back on track. I must say it’s easier to say ” stay calm and focus on the next question” but in the moment you actually mess up.

    However, the other sections i did prepare better. I think
    I could have fared much better in listening had i not neglected it.

    I did achieve my target of getting over 7 in each section and i happy about it.

    Liz i must say, all of your videos are quite precise and to the point. They really help a lot.
    I thank you for all the material.

    For all the test seeker, I wish all the luck in the world. Prepare well, no shortcuts really.


  72. I took IELTS on the 14th of October 2017, my scores were L:8, R:9, W:7.5, S:8. Thank you Liz for all the tips on your blog. I may have to write again (after a lot of practice) because I need a band score of 8 in Writing. But your site is amazing and I have recommended it to other test takers.

  73. Got my General Training results yesterday:

    Reading: 9.0
    Listening 9.0
    Writing 7.5
    Speaking 8.5

    Thanks for all the help and tips, really appreciate it!

  74. Shweta Verma says:

    Thank you so much Liz, I bought all your advanced IELTS lessons and was following this website for IELTS preparation. Finally, managed to get the desired result:
    Over all Score: 8

  75. Hi Liz,

    Your site helped me a lot in IELTS prep. I had just 10 day for the preparation and I read all of your articles which bolstered my confidence. I got my results yesterday :
    Overall : 8.5
    Listening: 9
    Reading : 9
    Speaking : 8
    Writing: 7.5

    I was a little disappointed with my speaking score as I was expecting a perfect score. Nevertheless, I am happy with my results. Thanks a lot for the youtube videos and the site.


    I studied from Cambridge IELTS prep book and road to IELTS
    Liz videos and site
    Also watched official IELTS test videos on youtube
    Improved vocabulary from GRE prep app.

  76. Hi Liz..
    Thank you so much for your lessons. I had one month time to prepare for my IELTS exam and I am glad that I came across your website. It proved wonderful for me. I received my results today. Overall band – 8
    Listening – 8
    Reading- 8
    Writing- 7.5
    Speaking -9

    Thank you again. You are a wonderful teacher. :).

  77. Hi All,

    I took the exam on 28th October 2017 and the results were posted online today. Below are my scores.
    Listening: 7
    Reading: 8.5
    Writing: 8
    Speaking: 7.5
    Overall: 8

    Thank you Liz for all the videos and articles in your website. That really helped to get this score!


  78. Hi Liz,

    I’d like to thank you for sharing such a wonderful tips and videos through social media. It is evident that everyone(including me) appreciates it. My weakness was the Writing section, but I must say your advance course did pay off. I had about 10 days of prep time which did not include practicing writing. However, I did go through model answers and the videos quite a few times.

    I sat for my exam on October 28th, 2017. Below is my score breakdown:
    Overall: 8
    L:8.5, R:6.5, W:8.0, S:8.5

    I am really disappointed with reading score. I wasn’t expecting such a bad performance, rather was expecting that score range for writing(since I took 35 mins for task 1 and the rest for task 2). Would you recommend applying for a recheck?

    Have a wonderful day!

  79. Hi, Liz!
    I’m from SΓ£o Paulo, Brazil. I took IELTS Academic on October 28th.
    When I first took a peek at the test I was really shocked by how time plays an important factor in it. I had about 10 days to prepare for the exam, and dedicated most of my time to the writing tasks. I managed to get an Overall Band of 8.5 (speaking 8.5 / writing 8 / listening 8 / reading 8.5).
    I just cannot stress how important all your tips were for my overall preparation. I relied 100% on them. Thank you very much.

  80. Bhavesh Dhanesha says:

    Hi Liz,

    Thanks a lot for all the knowledge you share. My overall score is 8.5:
    L: 8.5
    R: 9.0
    S: 9.0
    W: 7.5

    I had around a month to prepare for IELTS. But due to my hectic work schedule could not devote time to it. But your videos and tips helped me to score the marks above. Your recommendation of paraphrasing and vocabulary helped a lot.

    Thank you πŸ™‚

  81. Amanjit Kaur says:

    Hi Liz!

    Got my IELTS general Training result today.
    L – 7.5
    R- 9
    S- 8
    W- 8

    Overall band : 8

    I have to thank you for the wonderful blog you run here and for sharing your expertise with all of us. A noble thing, indeed. Many thanks and lots of love from India !

  82. Hello Liz,

    I want to tank you for your videos and this blog. I’ve received my academic IELTS results today.
    Overall – 8.0
    R – 9.0
    L – 8.5
    W- 7.0
    S – 7.0
    Although I still need 7.5 from writing and speaking with your help I’ve improved my writing in 3 months from 6.5 to 7.0. Once again, than you for being such a great and helpful tutor.

    In writing pert one I had to describe a table and two bar charts about number of doctors in Australia, they were divided by gender and place of birth.
    The second part of a writing task was a discussion essay about whether parents should teach their children to recycle or it’s a responsibility of school administration.

    During the speaking I was asked to tell about a happily married couple, other questions were about wedding ceremony and family traditions in my country.

  83. L – 9
    R – 9
    W – 7
    S – 9

    Overall 8.5.

    I knew I would score low in writing, 2 main mistakes – 1) wrote a paragraph after conclusion, since I was not sure if I had hit the 250 mark. 2) did not provide specific examples.

    Thank you, Liz! This website really helped. πŸ™‚

  84. Hi Liz.
    Your tutorials played a big role to my IELTS Success!! Thank You!
    L= 8.5
    Overall= 8.5

  85. hello liz,
    thank you so much for your support and help.

  86. Hi Liz,

    I primarily used your write-ups and videos for the writing task 2. They were of great help. I was able to improve my score from 6.5 to 7.5. A BIG thank you for that.

    However, I was disappointed that my speaking score dropped from 8 to 7. Probably I should have seen your videos on this topic also:) . In any case, I achieved the desired scores, so I am content.
    My score is: L-9, R-8.5, W-7.5, S-7 Overall-8

    Thank you very much for your support. You are doing a wonderful job.

  87. Hello Liz,

    I had my General IELTS Test on October 14th 2017. The results were promptly published online on the morning of October 27th.Here are the scores .

    Overall – 8.5
    Listening – 8.5
    Reading – 8.5
    Speaking – 8.5
    Writing – 7.5

    I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful website and all the amazing videos you have uploaded. All I had was just 2 weeks of preparation time , so I had to juggle the learning with my work and household chores . A family friend recommended your website and I took an instant liking to your online teaching classes the very first time I saw them. I would spend at-least an hour or two listening to your splendid videos,on a daily basis for a fortnight. Writing was the section I was afraid of the most ,but all of the tips which you mentioned helped to stand me in good stead. It’s an absolute delight to watch your videos since you’re just oozing with so much of positive energy and warmth. Your smile certainly helps to dispel all the apprehensions a prospective IELTS candidate would have.If I come across any co-worker or friend preparing for IELTS I’d recommend your website assuring them that the only preparation they need is to just religiously follow whatever you teach.Once again thanks a lot and God Bless you.

    Thanks & Kind Regards

    Reading 6.5
    Writing 6.5
    Speaking 6.5
    Listening 5.5
    Overall 6.5

    Then I stumbled on your site courtesy of a friend. I went through all the advise and practice lesson, and I took the test again on 14th October. It came out great

    Listening 7.5
    Reading 9.0
    Writing 7.5
    Speaking 7.0
    Overall 8.0

    The issue though is that my Country, Nigeria, is competitive. I need a minimum of 8 in Listening for cec. So I have decided to take it again.

    I however must appreciate your valuable impact. Now I am more than confident to take it again

    Hello Liz,
    I did the test in Lagos, Nigeria (General Version) on Oct. 14th for the first time. Online results today reads:
    Listening 9, Reading 9, Writing 8 and Speaking 7.5. Overall band: 8.5
    I’m not so surprised about the speaking aspect. I found it a bit difficult given that most of my questions were about Art: contemporary art, modern art and a whole lot of Qs I had little or no ideas about.
    I had exactly one week to study so I created a study plan. One day for each module, put in at least 10 study hours each day and I spent it on your blog – the videos, tips on answering questions (especially T,F,NG questions, thanks for those!), finished all practice tasks on your website and numerous Cambridge practice tests. For Reading, I practiced with the Academic test samples rather than the General’s since they are a bit more difficult. For Writing, I equally found helpful. They upload lots of writing tasks from previous IELTS exams for test takers.
    Two things helped: your blog and practice. A lot of practice. Thank you so very much for the resources and materials you provide. God bless you real good.

      Hello Liz,
