Felipe’s journey and challenges
Felipe’s dream of establishing a life in Australia with his wife was very close. However, he had to pass the IELTS Exams first.
The exam required a minimum score of 7 in each band, a requirement for obtaining a skilled visa. Felipe was determined, but the path ahead was filled with obstacles.
Felipe’s initial encounters with the IELTS exam did not go so well. His score in the writing section did not reach the band 7 cut off mark.
Despite his best efforts, his writing did not improve. He embarked on a journey of self-improvement, seeking guidance from an English teacher and an online language course. Yet, the results remained the same.
