Never give in - I finally got an IELTS band 7!
by Shanshui Shanghai
Guys, just to share with you guys the good news that broke out today. :-) yes, I made it i.e. all above 7.
First time: L-7, R-7, S-6.5, w-6
Second time: L-7.5 R-8 S-7.5 W-7
I am relieved from such a big burden that I had been carrying along for months.
I used to feel like 7 in writing was just too tough and jump from 6 to 7 was said to be just too big. I was not encouraged at all but I kept trying and reading forums and got essay corrected online, of course, dollars needed.
My experience is that first thing first, make grammatical mistakes as less as possible and use simple sentences rather than going for complex sentences.
I first completed task 2 then went back to task 1.
After the test, I thought my writing score would be in between 6.5 and 7, and most probably leaning towards 6.5 but by the grace of God,it came out to be different. YES!!!!!!!!!!!! All above 7. A step forward to PR application.
Guys, nothing is impossible, all that you need to do is be determined and keep trying. Never give in.
