Here comes another Outstanding BlueSkyian who has achieved an IELTS score of 7.5 on her frist attempt.
Hello! I’m Thiri Aung Naing.
I have finished second year MBBS. I’m trying to apply for a medical school in Europe.
I took exactly 3 months to prepare for the IELTS with 20 sessions course from Blue Sky International (BSI). There are only a few students accepted in each class, and the interactive Zoom classroom lets me discuss and communicate with the teachers well. The following are the tips I would like to share with those of you who are preparing for an IELTS test.
I practiced the IELTS past papers from the Cambridge IELTS books with no pause or repetition to get exam exposure. And then I took time to reflect my mistakes, which is a valuable aspect taught by the BSI teachers in order to improve our score. The most important thing is not to lose focus the entire time, and be careful of word limit, spelling and capitalization.
This section was very overwhelming for me at first. But it became easier as I learned proper tips and techniques on how to tackle each question type. The study materials and exercises provided by BSI helped me a lot. I always set time limit as the teachers told me to when I practiced.
I’m particularly grateful for Tr. Wendy’s efficient instructions on these tasks. I could learn how to construct a clear plan for each essay type. The way she taught us how to read sample essays was a game changer for me. Moreover, very precise corrections on my practice essays from the teachers helped me improve my weaknesses.
We had to practice IELTS speaking questions with partners during every session which helped me to generate ideas. I think instead of trying to impress with big words, speaking with natural flow including some topic related vocabulary items can help us get a higher score.
Overall, taking mock tests provided by BSI helped me significantly. The feedback is very detailed and precise that I could learn from my mistakes.
Our hearty congratulations to Thiri on achieving a very good socre of 7.5 on your frist attempt with just 3 months’ preparation. We are happy that you have chosen to study with us and we really appreciate for sharing your tips. We wish you all the best with your further studies in Europe.
