​I am a gynaecologist by profession and I wanted to pursue career as a doctor in UK. To write the qualifying exam PLAB I needed a minimum score of 7 in all 4 modules and an overall score of 7.5. Without this score I cannot practice as a doctor in UK. I took the IELTS exam in March but could not get the desired score (reading: 7, writing: 6.5, listening: 7.5, speaking: 7 and overall 7). I have then taken the help of iPass and did the IELTS Express course. I also took the help of Nigel for speaking and took IELTS again on 13/08/2016. I got the result on 26/08/2016 and my score is Reading: 7, Writing: 7, Listening: 8.5, Speaking: 8.5 and overall 8). 

This was more than what I needed. Thanks to iPass, which has helped me to improve my score, I can now pursue my medical profession in UK. I recommend iPass to everyone who is struggling to get good scores in IELTS.
