Myanmar IELTS Prize Local Winner 2015
Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore

IELTS is more than a language examination. It is the best practice field for someone who is about to embark an academic journey. The test is systematically designed to examine more than the language capability of student but other soft skills such as critical thinking, logic, appraisal, analytical skills and presentation skills in every linguistic aspect as possible as well. The test not only enables me to reach my dreams but also perfected my language skills that are essential for every future interaction in my further study.
