Over All Band Achieved: 7.5
About Saurabh Poddar
A working professional is what best describes Saurabh Poddar who was eager to ace his IELTS exams for which he resort to IELTS Ninja for professional guidance. He had attempted IELTS before but he wasn’t satisfied with his band score so he gave it another try after training with IELTS Ninja. Let us see what he has to say about his experience with us.
In his own words, “It was two previous futile attempts to secure the targeted band and bell IELTS, which made me anxious as I had already spent a good amount of time on it. To this, I realised that IELTS is not about only testing English skills but, it more about how well you manage your time, how precisely you answer the questions whether it is for Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening. I did take computer based, self-learning online courses; however, it didn’t prepare me for the bands I was aiming for and was eagerly looking for a professional support. After an extensive search on the internet, I finally come across IELTS Ninja and I embarked on the journey towards achieving the goal. Registration, Payment and all other processes are streamlined despite the fact that I was not present in the same country as of trainer. Being working professional, my training duration was constraint by my office timing and to elevate this there was a time difference of 2 ½ hours. All these impediments were cordially overcome and training was initiated. I just had 4 weeks before appearing for the 3rd time. My mentor Ms Priyanka stood up to this challenge and emboldened me by having sessions specifically targeting my weakness along sharing the vital know-how about answering the various questions. After 4 weeks of extensive training, I was certain to secure my desired band this time. But as the luck had it, I missed the boat by a fraction of the band in Writing. This helped me to fathom my own lacunae and mistakes, which I was keen to overcome. Once again, I enrolled for IELTS exams which were scheduled after 3 weeks. I trusted IELTS Ninja and enrolled for an intense 13 hours course to fill in the gaps which have enmeshed my performance. This time Mrs Mansi was assigned to this demanding task and training was conducted. She swiftly gauged my areas of improvement and provided the tips which would propel me towards achieving higher bands. Once again, I attempted IELTS general exam on 3rdNov’16, and this time I made it a point to be mindful of all the instructions and advises given to me by both the mentors. Owing to this, at last when results were out on 17th Nov’16, it was dream come true for me by securing 7 or higher band in each category. I express my gratitude to my mentors Ms Priyanka and Mrs Mansi along with the entire IELTS Ninja team. For me, the journey towards realising my ambitions received the wings of hope and a path to success.”
