    I failed mine 3 times then got the third over turned into a pass. i don't think i would have done it a fourth time, would have given up. there are lots of books, online practice papers etc, i enrolled with ielts higher in the end. You don't state which version you a sitting, the academic is much harder than the general test.

    Ielts is fine, you just have to learn to answer the questions as they want you to. The main issue is to make sure your profession is wanted otherwise the application may become hard work.

    Hi Bev, it's all part of the joys of applying for the visa, thought I may have to do IELTS at one point, but was ok on points without. With the IELTS, you can't help but say 'hello I'm English' kinda should be accepted on that basis. Funny thing is, you arrive here and there are thousands of people with no or pigeon english at best, mmm double standards, or am I being cynical. There will be plenty more to make you groan during the visa process, so it's always handy to keep a table close by to bang your head on. Take one step at a time, and work through it. If you want it enough you'll do it. Understand you've had a wee drop of rain in UK, we haven't, the sun shines in the winter as well, enough said, start practising your A B C's. Good luck.

    The books come with audio tests (a cd) which could be downloaded through i tunes.

     

    I passed the ielts with minimum 7.5 (pity as everything else 8.5-9) which gave me the 10 points I needed. You only have to demonstrate you are proficient in English as you will sit the general paper not academic.

     

    Happy mood this morning as received an email confirming straight Vetassess pass so final stages of visa application now!

    Thank you..people who usually say its easy usually do the general and not the academic and not require a high score as we do in nursing.. sorry its a bug bare of mine.. yes just love it, just under a year, no homesickness at all.. boys settled, we have good jobs, 2 mins from the beach..

     

    For us so far its been the best thing we ever did.
