Both students had taken the test multiple times, before committing to 3 Keys IELTS.

They had gotten lower scores than they needed– Ananda didn’t reach the 8 for Listening that she needed, and Sergio wasn’t able to get the 7 on Writing. They both missed out slightly on the scores needed to immigrate to Canada.

Ananda was able to increase her Listening score by improving her focus, especially in Section 3. She learned not to try to understand every word that was being said.

Also, she didn’t panic if she wasn’t able to read everything before listening, as I told her that she could use some time while she listened to underline key words.

The IELTS Listening Exam was a piece of cake for her on exam day!

Ananda’s other scores improved as well! Her Reading went from a 7 to an 8.5.

When she received her results, however, her Writing score had gone down to a 6.5. She didn’t believe this was accurate, so she got a review, and her score jumped to a 7.5. This means she got an overall IELTS 8.

On her previous exam, she received a 7 in Writing. Then, in Personal Coach classes with me, she received very positive feedback, so she was confident that she deserved higher than a 6.5., and she was correct! This growth was due to clearer organization and more specific support.

Sergio increased his Writing score from a 6 to a 6.5, got an 8 in Listening, 7.5 in Reading and 7 in Speaking.

However, he still needed a 7 in Writing for immigration purposes. Nevertheless, as they are applying as a couple, they can use Ananda’s scores for principal purposes, and Sergio’s scores, though barely below requirements, are still excellent and will add points to their application.

Sergio further recommends having a study partner, as he was supported by his wife, Ananda. When he studied alone, his scores became worse. This is why it is necessary to interact with other IELTS candidates, like in our closed Facebook group, for instance, on Skype or in person.

As much as you can, you must use English in your life. Even just talking to yourself is a great help!

In their final tips, Ananda noted how helpful Reading strategies are, as it is impossible to read everything in the passage. Sergio actually got a 9 on a previous exam by using our system.
