This has been a long IELTS journey for him!

Last year, he realized that he had to start preparing for this exam for immigration purposes.

He actually had to take the exam 3 times before he secured the marks he needed, that magic 8, 7, 7, 7.

As he has a full-time job, and a family, he had to try really hard to fit in his IELTS preparation. So, he stretched the 60 day plan into 90 days.

For his first IELTS attempt, he got an overall 7, but only a 6 on Listening. However, he got an 8.5 on Reading, 6.5 on Writing, and 7 on Speaking.

Then, on his recent test, he got an overall 8, with an 8.5 for Listening, 9 on Reading, 7 on Writing, and 7.5 on Speaking. Every score increased!

More than that, though, he practiced our 3 Keys Listening strategies until they felt natural.

Orcun also notes that doing a lot of practice tests helped him understand the IELTS pattern‘, as the exam does repeat tricks and distractors on every test, like negatives.

Increase IELTS Writing Score

Orcun was stuck at a 6.5 on Writing, so he really focused on this section.

He did a gap analysis, meaning that he spotted his weaknesses.

For Orcun, his difficulty was in generating specific ideas.

To do this, he would ask himself questions, like ‘Why do I agree?‘, and ‘How does this happen?‘. This helped him come up with specific examples.

Then, all he had to do was put these specific ideas into our 3 Keys templates, and, boom! IELTS Writing 7!

Additionally, Orcun got feedback on his writing from Jessica, which further helped him to improve his IELTS Writing score.
