Kirill’s Band 8 in IELTS exceeded his own expectations 

0 357

Kirill got an Overall Band Score of 8.0, with a straight 9 in Reading, and it was more than he expected!

Here is what he said:

“I used various techniques which I have found online. 
First of all, I was writing essays and letters as often as I could. 1-2 pieces of writing each day are perfect. I was getting 6.5 usually, but I have managed to get 7 in the exam. 
Also, I was listening to podcasts every day for 1 hour while commuting to the office. I have not trained in speaking at all, because I use English almost every day at work. 
As for reading I also read some books, but what I think is a great strategy is listening to an audiobook while reading the same book. This practice will not only load information to the brain fast but also will help you improve vocabulary along with pronunciation.
I have finished a monthly course of IELTS preparation also, it was 1.5 hour twice a week. Overall, I spent roughly 1-1.5 months to prepare. Also, my attitude for the exam was relaxed and I did not care about the result, I was perceiving it to be a test shot. I was not confident about my writing, but all my friends told me that I will handle it and I did, to my own big surprise!”
