You might have no idea how MANY DOCTORS around the world are thankful for your help in learning English! On behalf of all white coat wearing people, THANK YOU!.
I read many FB med group chat’s comments and other social networks, where many who want to come to the UK to practice medicine get together , and many of them recommend watching your videos.
Thousands of them, mostly from developing countries, show their gratitude to you.
we need above 7.5 in total and above 7 in each.
Personally, I have given IELTS 5 times, in 6 years. Unfortunately, I have not received the required score yet. BUT, I have received in Speaking 8,
reading 7, Listening 7.5, and most horrible part-writing 6.5
Those numbers were different in each time, I just compiled them in the best shape, to show the greatest achievement I could get in those hardest ever my exams. I never got any bad marks during my 8 years of medical exams. I graduated from medical school with Honors yet ENGLISH- is my weak point.
I am proactive and will try for the 6th time, I believe it will be my last time of giving IELTS, I will achieve the required and even more band.
I have never really practice writing exactly at it is given in your explanation. But this time I WILL.
