​I’m really thankful to Jenny for the support she has given to me. I was unable to score 7 in all modules in IELTS, but with the help from all the tutors on the speaking & writing course, I was able to score 7 in each module. 

I would like to recommend Jenny and the iPass team to all the aspirants who would like to score 7 plus in IELTS. Thank you again!
