I also had a very interesting interview with Sabih, an IELTS candidate that scored band 7 on his first attempt. Sabih is an interesting case as he did very little studying before his exam. To hear the entire interview, click here!

    Hi, Ryan! Getting a band 9 is such a tall order. For my students, just getting a 7 is already a struggle. But these are great tips from these IELTS candidates. There are some people who already have a strong language foundation. For those with minimal language experience, they really need more time to study.

    The tips given by vidit was really helpful, especially while answering the reading section. I tried it for the reading test and I scored 8.That was to write the answer number on the text itself as the answers are generally appears in order.Thanks for recording it.

    According to my practice, I don’t agree that NG is when 100% absent. Please comment your view more clearly with an example.

    Hi Ryan
    Your accent is pretty understandable and clear, keep it up.Do u have any idea for me so that i can mimic a accent like Vidit here? as you know while speaking i have to think ideas, grammer and others so it’s bit tough to concentrate on accent too.
