Frequently Asked Questions!

I feel one month is not enough for me, can I study for longer? 2018-04-24T10:05:18+00:00

You certainly can! You will receive a discount if you decide to continue for another month.

However, our years of IELTS preparation success has shown that majority of the candidates will maximize their IELTS score after approximately 50 hours of exam specific practice.

How many students do you teach in a single batch? 2018-04-24T10:04:42+00:00

It is hard to give an exact number.

We understand that every individual is different which is why we pride ourselves in providing individual attention to each and every candidate. As part of our intensive exam preparation, we provide every candidate with detailed feedback on their specific performance.

Is there any training material provided as part of the training session? 2018-04-24T10:04:07+00:00

Yes. We provide free practice tests and tips/tricks/techniques/practice exercises to follow in your own personal time.

Our training includes practice tests for all the IELTS modules (Listening/Reading/Writing/Speaking) and PTE assessments. Not only that, you will also receive plenty of FREE handouts as well !

When do I have to pay for the training? 2018-04-24T10:03:34+00:00

You will need to pay on the day the new coaching session begins. Payment will be due on the first day after you fill out an enrollment form.

Can I come in to see your training facilities? 2018-04-24T10:03:05+00:00

Yes you can.

However, you need to make an appointment prior to visiting our training center. This will ensure that there is an instructor present to show you around and answer all your queries.

Alternatively, you can simply book in for our upcoming IELTS or PTE Training course and the first hour of training will be provided absolutely FREE. If you do not like our training facilities or our content delivery, you are free to leave. No questions asked! If you would like to talk to us regarding the course, feel free to call us or drop us a line and we will address your concerns.

Do you offer any discounts for a group of students? 2018-04-24T10:02:33+00:00

Yes we do! It’s simple.

If you are a group of four or more friends wanting to study IELTS, simply join the same IELTS training batch and you will each receive 10% off !

How can you improve a candidate’s English in such a short amount of time? 2018-04-24T10:00:15+00:00

We do not claim to teach you English in 20 or 30 hours. However, we are confident that you will score at least 0.5 -1.5 band higher in the IELTS exam if you follow our techniques and strategies!

Remember, IELTS is an exam. It requires training and preparation over and above good English skills. Many candidates are not graded to their maximum potential simply because of lack of training.

We are confident that you will improve with our training, provided you attend all of our classes, make reasonable effort to study, and apply the principles you learn in our training session(s).

Do you have current ‘IELTS Examiners’ working at TargetIELTS Training Centre? 2018-04-24T09:59:34+00:00

As per the latest British Council IELTS Code of Practice (sec 8):

8. An IELTS Examiner:
8.1.4 – Does not use knowledge gained from examining for IELTS preparation purposes.
8.1.7 – Does not advertise (in print, on the internet or by any other methods) their Examiner status (current or lapsed) for the purpose of marketing, teaching and/or publishing.
8.1.9 – Does not represent themselves in any way as an IELTS Examiner or ‘expert’ or words to that effect – for example on a business card, web site or advertisement.

At TargetIELTS, we believe in fair and honest training practices. Thus, unfortunately, we are unable to share the IELTS certification status of our instructors with the public.

If another rogue institute claims to have ‘Official IELTS examiners’, it is a complete fraud.

Don’t believe us, read section 8.0 of the official British Council IELTS Code of Practice yourself!

What if I am not sure whether to choose General Training or Academic? 2018-04-24T09:52:38+00:00

We strongly recommend that you confirm with your advisors before selecting your study mode. General Training IELTS and Academic IELTS differ in important areas.

Can I upgrade from Standard to the Premium Plan? 2018-04-24T09:49:26+00:00

Yes, if you have an existing Standard subscription, you can upgrade from Member Area. Upgrading from Upgrading to Premium gives you more time, however comes at a higher fee.

So – we strongly recommend students to make up their mind initially as buying the basic package and then upgrading later would generally cost more than starting out with the premium membership initially.
