Hamza Ahmed Raza

Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: Sir Shirazi's Academy, Karachi (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme). I am glad to score a 7.0 band score. As a result, I was eligible for my desired university in the UK. This was due to Sir Shirazi's vast experience in training students and providing useful exam tips and techniques and individual attention. Furthermore, British Council did an excellent job with the exam operations. We faced no problems at the exam day. The staff was very professional.
