Congratulations Virginie, you superstar! Did you expect to get an IELTS 7.5 when you took the test?
I expected to have a 7 because it was/is the result that I needed. However, when I took the test I was so stressed and I wasn’t expecting that I would achieve such high scores even when everybody was telling me that I should believe in myself!
And what were the individual scores?
8.5 in listening
7.5 in reading
7 in writing
6.5 in speaking
8.5 in Listening! Amazing. What advice would you give to Leeds English students studying Intensive IELTS who are going to take their tests soon?
My advice for other students is obviously to work hard and believe in yourself. I know that it seems a bit simple and I guess that everyone knows it, but it is as simple as that! And also practice makes perfect.
Well sometimes the simplest way is the best way. What’s next, Virginie? What are you going to do with your IELTS 7.5?
Next I’m going to try to get into a university (with a preference for Leeds), and study Linguistics. And with the IELTS 7.5, I finally have the proof that my use of English is good enough to do so.
Will you miss us? We’ll miss you!
Of course, I’ll miss you very much! In a way you changed my life, and I’m very thankful for that! I met amazing people and staff, so again, thank you!!
