Inspired by true stories, watch how these IELTS test takers went #BeyondTheTest.
‘The whole journey was a realisation of a lifelong dream. Successfully achieving my IELTS score with Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 9 and higher was my gateway to an ITA (Invitation to Apply – for permanent residency). Now I am just waiting for my Canadian Immigration Visa to be approved within three months.’
‘Taking IELTS opened a whole new world for me. I currently live in London with my husband and couldn't be more excited to see my daughter who will be joining us here soon. This dream started when I made the first step of choosing to take the test with the British Council.’
‘IELTS was a key to my study-abroad journey. One of the best things about studying abroad is being part of a diverse group of people from all over the world. Being able to communicate well in English has allowed me to know more about their culture and vice-versa.’
‘There was a time when I was sure I had given up on my career as a nurse. Going through the IELTS test not only made me more confident with my English skills but also allowed me to achieve my dream of working in the UK.’
‘In many ways, I think my decision to take IELTS with the British Council is the reason why I’m here in Canada, living my dream. I was able to maximise my IELTS preparation, not only for the test, but also for the new life I have embarked on.’
‘Without IELTS, I wouldn't be able to get my credentials assessed by Engineers Australia (EA). The tips I got from the writing workshops I attended came in handy when I was working on my career episodes for EA. After 6 months of working on the requirements, my family and I were granted permanent residency and it would not have been possible without IELTS.’
‘Taking IELTS has allowed me to pursue my dream to study in the UK through the IELTS Prize. I am grateful to have been chosen for the prize and truly honoured for the faith that the British Council has in my abilities and aspirations.’
‘I used to be afraid of what the future can bring. But at the same time, I was also excited to take on the challenges in achieving my dreams of working abroad. Taking IELTS was definitely life-changing as it brought me to my dream destination. I am now enjoying sceneries I only used to see in photos before.’
