Band 9 in Speaking, Listening and Reading! 8.5 in Writing. Impossible? No! Vidit nails it!

Vidit is like the Rocky of IELTS.  Why do I say that?  Because Vidit totally hit it out of the park with his recent IELTS exam.  Check out these scores:

9 in speaking!

9 in reading!

9 in listening!

8.5 in writing!

A native speaker?  Try again.  Vidit grew up in India and tells me he did not come from an English-speaking household.

So what is his secret?  How can a non-native English user go from nothing to band 9?

Click here to listen to my conversation with Vidit and find out!

Band 9 is possible.  Do NOT give up!

      Hi Denis,

      Yes, Vidit’s story is an interesting one. I was blown away when he told me his writing mark was raised from 7.5 to 8.5 after he challenged it!
