IELTS success stories

Through this initiative, we aim to acknowledge and celebrate achievements of our test takers and partner institutions. Our goal is not only to recognise the remarkable efforts of our partner institutes in delivering excellent results for their candidates but also the brilliance of their candidates who took  IELTS with British Council and who were helped by British Council in realizing their dreams of studying or emigrating abroad.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular high stakes English-language test for study, work and migration, with more than 2.2 million tests taken each year. IELTS assesses all of your English skills - reading, writing, listening, and speaking - and is designed to reflect real life use of English - at study, at work, and at play.

No matter where you take the test, IELTS marking is done to very high standards by trained examiners.

Farah Farooq

Band score: 7.5. Agent's name: Wise Home College of Modern Laguage Kharian. I scored 7.5 bands in IELTS Academic. I would especially like to thank my mentor Mr. Danish Aziz from Wise Home College of Modern Languages, Kharian, who guided me throughout and taught me some amazing tricks to get through all the modules.

Mussab Ali

Band score: 7. Agent's name: ABN Overseas Education. Studying at ABN was a biography changing experience for me, literally. The ambiance provided there by the brilliant madam Fatima was stunning! I'm appreciating her because of her amazing skill to deal with each student differently by working separately on everyone. Also, their guidance for taking the test with British Council provided extremely fruitful for me. Also, their test dates are readily available and the procedure is easy to follow.

Noor-E-Hira Ahmer

Band score: 8. Agent's name: ABN Overseas Education. One thing outstanding about the British Council is the quality of results that they are maintaining. The service of staff out there at exam centre is really good. They cooperate with every student individually if they encounter any problem out there. Choosing ABN to prepare for IELTS and British Council for taking this test was a good decision, it was a good experience. I'm really thankful to ma'am Fatima Mazhar as she was very supportive.

Rida Naz

Band score: 7.5. Agent's name: ABN Overseas Education. Many thanks to British Council for helping me get this score. Had I not taken the test with British Council, it won't have been possible for me to achieve this score. Secondly, ABN IELTS coaching is among the best in town. The way ma'am Fatima brushed up my skills in quite limited time, is unmatchable. She is immensely cooperative and considerate. I am wholeheartedly thankful to my IELTS trainer and ABN team.
