Today you’ll learn the secrets of 3 Keys’ student Caio’s overall 8 on IELTS!

secrets caio's overall 8 IELTS

Previously, Caio received 7.5 in Listening, 6.5 in Writing and Speaking, and 9 in Reading.

Already high scores.

To get the 9 in Reading on his own, he did loads of Academic practice exercises, which made his General test seem easy.

On his second try on the exam, using 3 Keys strategies, he increased his Listening score to an 8 and his Speaking to 7.5. His Writing score went up to an 8, but, due to lack of practice, his Reading score fell slightly to an 8.

How did Caio raise his Speaking score by a whole band point?

He followed the 3 Keys strategies and practiced a lot with his fiance.

Also, Caio had a personal coach session with Jessica, and learned how to slow down and breathe, instead of rushing through his answers.

One specific strategy that aided him on the Speaking Exam was telling a story in Part 2.

Plus, the card he got was the same as one of Jessica’s sample answers, about a day when he didn’t spend a lot of money.

Then, on Writing, he went from a 6.5 to an 8!

On the test, he was actually flummoxed at first, as he was faced with writing an opinion essay instead of an argument essay.

The personal coach session also helped him here, as he learned about his tendencies to wander off-topic and repeat himself.

So, instead of panicking, he followed the 3 Keys templates and structures, used all of our transition phrases and increased his score by a band and a half!

So, why did Caio’s Reading score decrease by a band point?

This is because he was confident in reading, as he’d already got a 9. So, he didn’t practice very much.

Now that Caio got the scores he needed, he’s ready to apply for Canadian immigration!
