​I undertook one speaking test and 3 writing tasks with iPassIELTS. The support and guidance I got was precise and to the point which helped me to secure 8 in speaking and 7 in writing. After one speaking test, Nigel pointed out my mistakes and gave me some links for correction. The video presentations of my writing tasks helped me understand my mistakes in a better way. I would recommend iPassIELTS to anyone who is looking for band 7 or 7+.
