Doctors are a unique group of IELTS candidates, typically they have to score a 7.5. This is higher than native English speakers' average IELTS band score of 7.1. That means, you need IELTS Preparation that is focussed on giving you the techniques, language and procedures to score higher than a native speaker. We are here to help you do that.
