​This was my second time with iPass IELTS for Speaking and Writing and I must say, I could not have achieved the scores I have without the guidance from iPass team. This time around the speaking sessions helped me focus specifically on my shortcomings such as speaking at a right pace, proper enunciation and avoiding too much repetition. This helped me raise my speaking bands from 7.0 to 8.0.

Further, I always struggled with the tone of letters in the writing part and this time feedbacks from Mr. Nigel and Jenny helped me to work on that and improve my writing. I was able to raise my writing score from 7.0 to 8.5 this time. I would like to convey my sincere thanks to iPass and would recommend it all those who are preparing for IELTS for the first time or are re taking the exam. My final scores were: R9 L8.5 S8 W8.5 (overall 8.5). Thanks iPass!
