​I took the IELTS twice in the Philippines and I was really disappointed that my other subtests were mostly 8 and a 7.5 but my writing was only 6.5. Despite the fact that I enrolled in a review center, reviewed hard and practiced a lot, I still got the same scores when I sat the test again for the SECOND TIME. After that, I started to search online for someone who could check my writing assessments, and I found iPass IELTS and I was really convinced when I read the testimonials. 

I enrolled on the IELTS writing course right away and sent my sample writing as soon as I could. I got band 7.0-7.5 (task 1) and 7.5-8.0 (task 2) in my first sample writing assessments. I was actually surprised because in the Philippines I only scored 6.5. I followed the corrections, tips and suggestions given to me by the iPass tutors. I became aware of the common mistakes and I also tried to use the good language again in my actual IELTS writing test. The assessments that iPass provide are CLEAR and DETAILED, and include a recorded video explanation for each assessment. 

I only took the course for less than 2 weeks (12 days) because I didn’t have any more time and my IELTS test was already scheduled. But thanks to iPass IELTS I finally got band 7.0 in my IELTS Academic Writing!
