From February 2020 IELTS course: "Hi guys, I happy level 1 day. I want to share my experience with you, as I think it could help. I did my IELTS on May 16th. My scores were good L7.5, R7, S7, W6.5 overall 7.0, but I needed all of them to be 7 or more, so I was sad about the 6.5 in writing. So I remembered that somewhere I read about re-mark, it cost 200 dollars, but I gave it a shot, and guess what? Today I got my re-mark result and actually they re-mark my 6.5 to a 7. I am thrilled!!! Thank you very much Gillian, you are an awesome teacher!"
