Jenna - iPass student of the month

Jenna joined iPass this summer because she needed to clear the Academic IELTS test with a minimum of band 7 in each component, this being the requirement for overseas nurses and midwives to register with the NMC in the UK. In fact, Jenna had already taken IELTS twice before in order to achieve this objective, but hadn’t been able to get higher than 6.5 in the writing test.

Jenna joined our IELTS Express course - a 30-day intensive test practice programme for candidates who have already taken IELTS but need to improve their scores.

Despite working full-time, Jenna was determined to succeed this time and made sure she completed all the practice assignments on the course, especially in the writing section to get the maximum benefit from the advice of our tutors.

So when Jenna first emailed us in August to say that she had passed her IELTS test with band 7 in Writing, we were extremely pleased to know that all her hard work and determination had paid off. And when she emailed us agin last month to say that not only has she passed her IELTS with overall band 8, but has also been offered a permanent job offer from a hospital in the UK and will start working there next March, we were over the moon!!

And that’s why she is our October student of the month!!

​I’m writing to thank you for all your help on the IELTS 7 course, which permitted me to achieve unexpected results in the last IELTS test. I got overall 7.5: L 7.5 ; R 9 ; W 6.5 ; S 7.5 

I knew that the writing tasks were not the best that I have ever written, so I am not surprised by that grade and I know I will have to do it again for this reason. However, 7.5 in speaking is a level that I did not expect to achieve at all, so we did a really good job!!
