    Hi nurses,

    I’ve been working as an Operating Room nurse for 2 years already and would like to pursue my nursing studies in Australia. However, I need to pass IELTS and get at least 7 band score on all 4 categories. I tried it last year but did not pass Writing (6.5) and Speaking (6.5). The IELTS exam is pricey so I would like to nail it this time and be able to continue my plans.

    Any tips you would like to suggest? Specifically in Writing and Speaking. My mind goes blank in Writing and I tend to lose confidence in Speaking.

    Hey Magic King! Yeah, I agree…Writing is the hardest. That’s why I also failed it during my first take. I had no problems with the other modules. My problem was that I don’t have much vocabulary and that’s what I worked on. I studied the Sentence Guide where it teaches all techniques, patterns, formula and gives feedback on every essay I write. It was a big help for me and a great savior!

    Yeah this is really helpful! Thank you Joycee!

    I just enrolled and started getting feedback on my essays. In my case, it’s a different and effective approach in order to nail Writing this time. We’ll start with Speaking soon. I also learned from him that reading and summarising at least 5 articles a day is a good way to broaden ideas and prevent mind from going blank. That’s what I’m doing everyday now. I also learned a lot from this YT video so I recommend it to IELTS takers who struggle with mind going blank dilemma:
