Silpa - iPass student of the month

Silpa joined iPass in February this year, having already taken the Academic IELTS text 6 times! She needed a minimum of band 7 in each module for NMC registration in order to work as a nurse in the UK. Silpa was very frustrated by her previous results because she had scored 7 in each module but unfortunately not in the same test. In fact she had scored 8.5 in Reading and Listening and as high as 7.5 in Speaking but it was proving difficult to get 7 in Writing.

With only one week before her next test, Silpa enrolled on our IELTS writing course but unfortunately with such little preparation time she still only secured a 6.5 in Writing. Then Silpa enrolled on the Writing Plus course and took another test in April, this time with much more time for careful preparation. And it paid off!! Silpa finally got the results she needed with 8.5 in Reading and Listening, 7 in Writing and 8.5 in Speaking (overall band 8).

We were so pleased for Silpa because she refused to give up and worked very hard to get the results she needed to work as a nurse in England. We wish her well in her new job!!

​I’m an occasional blogger and all throughout the years I have thought that I have mastered the English language, only to find out that I still have a lot to learn when I started reviewing for IELTS.

It was disappointing when I got low scores on the practice exams, especially in writing, which I consider my forte.

I’m a nurse and with my very busy work schedule, I didn’t have much time to review and practice, and it seemed very difficult for me to pass.

But thanks to Nigel, who encouraged me and boosted my self-esteem, I exceeded the band scores that I needed (Listening 7.5; Reading 7.5; Writing 7; Speaking 7.5; Overall 7.5).

I really recommend the IELTS 7 course because it is well-organised and easy to understand. The feedback and tips they gave were very helpful in the actual exam.

I highly recommend iPass to all those who wish to achieve their target band scores. Indeed, with faith in God, belief in yourself, and perseverance, nothing is impossible.

Cheers to more success iPass team!​
