IELTS Top-Up 1 - €20
The IELTS top-ups helped me prepare for the writing and speaking tests. The tutors' feedback I received was punctual and clear and also included useful web links and online recorded commentaries on how to improve. A great added value is their ability to explain the examiner's perspective which allows you to approach the exam with confidence and more effective strategies. As a result, I obtained 7 for writing and 7.5 for speaking, an improvement of 0.5 in each test in as little as two weeks!!
The iPass IELTS top-ups are for candidates who need guided test practice from an experienced IELTS tutor to get a higher band score in IELTS speaking and/or writing.
There are 3 top-up plans to choose from:
|Top-Up 1||1 live speaking test OR 2 writing assessments||€20|
|Top-up 2||2 live speaking tests OR 4 writing assessments||€40|
|Top-up 3||3 live speaking tests OR 6 writing assessments||€60|
*1 writing assessment = 1 writing task (task 1 or task 2)

I took a top-up 2 plan (1 speaking test and 2 writing tasks). The support and guidance I got was very precise and helped me to secure 8 in speaking and 7 in writing. After one speaking test, my tutor 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 iPass to anyone who is looking for band 7 or 7+ in IELTS.
