On Friday 3rd March, our Medics will be finding out whether the hard work they had put into the IELTS Academic examination 13 days ago has produced the results that they have prepared for.
Our Medics have taken multiple classes, engaged in general English, worked on vocabulary, mastered complex grammar, produced sophisticated essays, had multiple “chats” with tutors and most importantly, made some great friends.
Medics, we’ve got our fingers, toes, arms…legs crossed for you! Speak with you in the morning to find out how it went!
From your team @ IELTS Medical.
A quick reminder about taking the IELTS exams at our centre!
We are partnered with a national examinations brand which means that you can take your IELTS exam at the same place where you have been preparing for it. Within the Psychology and Linguistics field, there are numerous studies that have investigated the best learning conditions for succeeding in the exams. The consensus was that taking an exam in the same room where a student has prepared for it increases his or her chances of success.
And that is just one of the many benefits of preparing for the IELTS Academic exams with us!
Your results will be delivered in 13 days and will be available to download from the British council website, with another copy following in the post. Here are IELTS Medical, we have a maximum of 16 medical professionals taking the exam which means that it will be a lot less crowded and therefore – as our Medics report – less stressful.
What’s more, to cheer you up before the speaking exam we will be providing a delicious lunch after the Listening, Reading and Writing papers.
So, if you are still debating whether to take the IELTS exam on the 25th of March but are still unsure about your chances at getting the mark you need, call us on 02036376722 and we will do everything we can to help.
“This is the first time I’ve done the IELTS without any tension.”

We know how hard our Medics study and practice in order to achieve their 7.0-7.5 and progress with their healthcare careers in the UK. That’s why we do our best to make sure that when they take the exam with us, it goes as smoothly as possible.
You see, here at IELTS Medical, we believe that a relaxed exam day is essential to a great performance. It’s why we’ve partnered with a national exam centre, to deliver a set of small, closed official IELTS Academic examinations exclusively for our Medics – we even provide lunch!
Only 16 Medics can sit the exam with us, and we’ve got 9 spaces left for our next exam on Saturday 25th March, 2017… is one of them yours? Call 0203 637 6722.
It is important to plan. My experience of the exam and students of IELTS, is that they complain, “I didn’t have enough time.”
I hear this over and over again and it is my firm belief that “not enough time” is a result of poor planning.
How do I plan?
Planning can take on many guises, but the one I use most is a thing called a “spider diagram” or more commonly “mind map”. This is a good way of marshaling your thoughts before putting pen to paper and although it takes time, you can deliver an essay on time and with little panic.
There is an example of one:
Q) “In some countries young people are encouraged to work or travel for a year between finishing high school and starting university studies”
Discuss advantages and disadvantages for young people who decide to do this.
As you can see, just jotting down a few key ideas into the spider diagram, can organise your thoughts before you begin the essay. The glory of this method is that you can edit your plan quickly and easily without losing precious time.

Please remember that this is a closed examination ie. only IELTS Medical students will be permitted to sit the exam with us at our Kentish Town centre. Results will be released on 7th April, 2017.
