As an IELTS Medical Administrator, I have to admit that it is one of the most frequent questions and at the same time – one of the most difficult ones to answer directly. This is due to the fact that the answer itself depends on many various factors.
- Your previous IELTS score and the score you are aiming at.
It will more likely take more time for a Nurse A to score 7.0 if her last IELTS score was 5.5 than Nurse B whose last score was 6.5. On average, it takes around 5 weeks (while you attend classes twice a week) to go up 0.5 band. However, we have had medics who scored up higher and much quicker, so it is definitely not a rule.
- Your determination.
It could be that Nurse A, even though her last score was much lower than Nurse B’s, will get 7.0 quicker. Why is that? Because she is motivated to learn and improve, she never misses her classes, she always does her homework and is not afraid to ask questions when she does not understand something. Remember that the tutor will never do all the work for you; they are here to guide you and help you learn. It is up to you to get the 7.0 or 7.5 score.
- Give yourself time.
Please do not leave preparing for the IELTS exam for the last minute. Learning a foreign language is a process that has to take some time and it won’t happen overnight. Additionally, remember that discipline is a key to IELTS. You have to be in touch with the language every day, ideally all the time, in order to significantly improve. Besides attending classes, it would be a good idea to have a British radio in the background, watch British TV and speak to people in English.
To sum up – how long will it take you to get your score? The answer is: it depends on you. We can guide you in the right direction and assist you along the way, but it will still depend on you how quick you will get there.
