I just got my IETLS results: Reading: 8.5, Listening: 8.5, Writing: 8 and Speaking: 7, which luckily is the score I needed. Jenny helped me a lot especially preparing for the writing section. She gave me lots of useful tips and hints of how to improve my skills. Also, practicing interview via skype prepared me well for the actual interview. I was relaxed during the test as I was totally aware of what to expect. Thank you!
