Meet Mohamed, an IELTS Band 8 student after 4 attempts.
In this tutorial, you will learn how we helped Mohamed score 7 in IELTS Writing and band 8 overall twice after being stuck at 6.5 during two previous IELTS tests.
Mohamed is an Egyptian doctor who works in Kuwait. He needed to pass IELTS for the General Medical Council registration to practice medicine in the UK.
He needed a Band score of 7.5 in IELTS Academic and a minimum score of 7 in all the modules to complete his registration with the GMC.
Why Mohamed needed a native English speaker to correct his essays
Before discovering the IELTS Podcast, Mohamed had taken the IELTS twice in 2019. He scored 6 and 6.5 in writing despite paying for another essay correction service. The writing feedback from this service was not detailed enough to help him improve.
Frustrated with being stuck at 6.5 in writing, Mohamed started to look for solutions and found IELTS Podcast before his third attempt in 2020. He enrolled in our writing course and scored 7 in writing but had to postpone his travel plans due to personal reasons.
In 2022, he re-started his relocation plans and enrolled in our writing course again to help him prepare.
Before joining our Sentence Guide with Essay Corrections course, Mohamed wondered what could really be the difference between IELTS Podcast tutors and other English teachers.
He quickly realized that working with native English speakers and ex-IELTS examiners at IELTS Podcast made all the difference.
Our effective essay correction methods helped Mohamed learn how to write essays properly by highlighting his errors and showing him how to correct them.
What Mohamed learnt from our Writing course
Mohamed learnt some powerful writing tips from our tutors and ex-IELTS examiners about:
- proper vocabulary usage to avoid losing points
- how to use complex words in the right context
- how to sound more natural and use higher quality sentences in your Task 1 response
Our writing course also taught Mohamed:
- why planning your ideas for your essay is so important
- how to save time during the test
- why memorizing collocations alone is not enough to pass IELTS writing
- how to be OVER prepared for academic task 1
By his fourth IELTS attempt, Mohamed got an overall band score of 8 with 9 in Reading, 8.5 in Listening, 7 in Writing and 7.5 in Speaking.
He shares a super tip that helped him gain 8.5 in listening and a great resource to improve your reading fast.
Now that he has passed IELTS, Mohamed is on his way to the UK this August to start a new job and we wish him all the best.
We helped Mohamed score 7 and achieve success in IELTS Writing twice!
