​For my UK midwifery registration I had to get an overall score of 7 with all sub scores at least 7. I took the test twice and on both times received 6.5 in writing while all the other scores were over 7. I heard of iPassIELTS and took their writing course. With Nigel and Jenny’s help I was able to improve my writing score to 7! Now I can complete my registration for the NMC.

I’m thankful for the help I received. Without it I would still be struggling with the writing tasks. The feedback definitely helped as I was able to fix the mistakes I continuously made every time.

I definitely recommend iPass IELTS to everyone needing to improve their scores.
