Exam Results 2011
The International English Testing System (IELTS) exam is not a pass or fail exam. The results are on a scale from 1 to 9. We run courses that are designed for high level students and those who are at the lower end of the scale and who need much more guidance with how to best succeed at the Academic IELTS exam. Some of our students choose to take the exam before they are really ready for it so that they feel more confident the second time they take it.
110 students took the exam in 2011
8/8.5 = 6 students (5.5%)
7/7.5 = 18 students (16.5%)

Cambridge ESOL FCE, CAE, BEC Vantage and BEC Higher
On these courses we accept two kinds of students – firstly the students who are clearly ready to prepare for the exam and who have a high chance of passing it. We also accept what we classify as borderline students; these are students we feel will benefit greatly from taking the preparation course and will in no way hold back the other students in the class, but have a lower chance of passing the exam. All borderline students are advised at the time of their registration and given advice on what they can do themselves to improve their chances of passing the exam.

My dream of studying in London could not have become reality if I had not got a good mark in the IELTS. My speaking and writing skills in particular improved a lot because the teacher constantly gave me personal feedback which resulted in a high score in the final exam and are now essential at university.
I took the IELTS exam twice in my native Georgia but was unsuccessful. My IELTS course at the school helped me to achieve the results I needed. Following that, the University Relations Manager, through her professionalism and university contacts, was able to secure me a place on the course and university of my choice.
This course has given me all that I was looking for – to improve my English knowledge in a serious and friendly atmosphere.
