How Stefan Got A Band 8 In IELTS

The following section focuses on how our student Stefan from Zurich got their target IELTS score. Furthermore, it focuses on what he did and he give us his personal tips to help other students emulate his success. 


Stefan is from Zurich, Switzerland and he wanted to study in London. He needed a band 8 in each module and an overall of band 8 or higher. He achieved this with our course in 30 days. Stefan was a repeat IELTS taker, so it’s important to note he already had previous scores of band 7 or higher.  

Here are some of Stefan’s top tips and advice:  

We sent him the following questions and we have summarised his responses.  

How did you pass the exam in 30 days?  

I took proper time to prepare without rushing. I had already done the exam at least 2 times before and my last scores were around band 7 to 7.5 with a band 8 in reading and listening. Writing was my weakest score and the Online IELTS course is excellent when it comes to teaching writing for the IELTS exam. My speaking was a band 7.5, but in my first exam I had a band 8.  

How did you organise yourself?  

I organised myself by making a schedule using the study skills, which is a free course provided by the course.  

How did you improve your writing skills?  

I worked on it regularly with a submission of one task 1 and task 2 every five days, but I spent time to review all the samples and information given.  

How did you improve your speaking?  

The course has speaking included, so I was able to submit a speaking sample for assessment by my tutor.  

How did you improve your reading & listening?  

With the full practice mock tests on the study & quiz centre. They have excellent video tutorials now and these are absolutely excellent. You even have tutor assessed sections on the learning platform, which is really great!  

What did you do prepare for the day of the exam?  

I reviewed everything carefully.  

How do you think our course helped you?  

The course helped me, because of the expert knowledge – highly trained teachers and expert resources. Online IELTS are true industry leaders and experts in terms of preparation for the IELTS exam.

How did your teacher help you through the process?  

My teacher was knowledgeable and graded me fairly, which helped me to improve further.  

What was your band score?  

I’m really proud to say I got a band 7 overall. My full breakdown is as follows:  

Speaking 8  

Writing 8  

Reading 8  

Listening 8  

What are you doing now?  

I’ve living in the UK now and I think IELTS will help me to settle in the UK permanently. I’m planning on studying medicine to become a doctor in London.  

What’s the best tip you want to offer to other students?  

Take time to read all the information, plan your studies and take notes. You should also make a study schedule.
