What our IELTS candidates say

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.

Hina Javed

Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: Seema's IELTS, Karachi (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme).  To pass an IELTS exam with a desired band score is always challenging. I was able to score 7.0, but this was a result of extensive study. I believe that hard work always pays off and that belief was given to me by Ms Seema. She provided us with useful tips and techniques on how to solve the exam and I believe that these tips were the reason I was able to get this score. 

Hina Nasir

Band Score: 7.5 Registered from: Pak British Institute (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme) Taking IELTS exam with the British Council was an excellent experience. I am not only grateful to my teacher, Sir Jalal who guided me to achieve my required band score, but also the British Council. They provided wonderful customer service from the registration to the mock test and the final exam day. I strongly recommend people to take their IELTS exam with the British Council.

Ibtisam Bin Iqbal


Band Score: 8.0 Registered from: ABN Overseas Education (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme). It was really a wonderful experience for me with ABN Overseas Education. The effective preparation techniques and Ms. Fatima's professional guidance helped me to perform exceptionally well. Their support and mentorship raised my score to 8.0 in two weeks. I highly recommend ABN for those who are looking to prepare for IELTS exam.

Imran Shoaib Butt

Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: Roma Institute of Modern Studies, Rawalpindi (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme) I have managed to score 7.0 bands in IELTS Academic for my higher studies in Australia. I couldn't have achieved that score without the mentorship of my IELTS facilitator Mr. Waqas Ahmed Khan. His support during my training session helped me to realise my dream. He offers interactive content for IELTS preparation, so that one can become comfortable with the test pattern.

Maha Shams

Band Score: 8.0 Registered from: Emerging Visions, Islamabad (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme) It was all together a new field for me to prepare for my IELTS exam.I wouldn't have been able to score so well without the dedication and hardwork put in by my mentor, Sir Ali. The way he has been explaining the modalities for preparation and subsequently appearing in the said exam is simply matchless.  My result is attributed towards the overall management of the British Council.

Mahain Sana


Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: Sir Shirazi's Academy, Karachi (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme).Before joining Sir Shirazi's Academy, I had very little idea about the IELTS exam and how to take the exam. At the academy, I learned about the format of the exam, how to take the exam and some very useful tips, tricks and techniques to ensure a good band score. Taking the exam with the British Council was a very wonderful experience. I couldn't be happier with the venue staff. 



Maria Saghir

Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: SLS College, Jhelum Since-2000 (British Council's B2B Gold Partner institute)

The teachers and the staff specially MD SLS Sir Sarfraz Malik was very supportive and devoted. I took online classes of IELTS with students from Islamabad, Gujranwala, Sargodha & Karachi. SLS staff was available online and on campus for me through every thick and thin during the IELTS preparation. I will suggest this Institute to those who want to ace IELTS. 

Maryam Khurram

Band Score: 7.0 Registered from: JAK Institute of English, Karachi (Member of the IELTS Partnership Programme). I am very excited to share my IELTS exam score. I scored an overall 7 band, which was because of my mentor, Sir JAK. His efforts, teaching methodology and techniques in preparing candidates helped me in getting my desired band score. Quality services by the British Council was another major support. I would like to thank both of them for their support. 


Muhammad Abdullah

Band Score: 7.5 Registered from: Emerging Visions Pvt Ltd.

I always considered taking up IELTS as a bigger hurdle than getting admission in a university. The IELTS classes at Emerging visions Pvt Ltd, not only helped me to overcome my fears but exclusive sessions with Mr. Muhammad Ali was the vital reason of me achieving my target band and admission in the University. British Council also organised everything in a professional manner during the exam days and everything was very smooth and tidy.
