After failing the IELTS 7x, I joined CELBANPrep in the month of FEB, took the CELBAN MAY 3 I passed

Kim, I was lost when I decided to finally take CELBAN. Prior to that I took IELTS more than 5x when I was in the Philippines and 2x here in Canada. I was devastated when I didn’t got my desired scores in IELTS. I had hesitations in applying for CELBAN because: first) it don’t know anything about it, second) i don’t know people or institution who conduct reviews and lastly) another months of preparation. Luckily, I saw CelbanPrep thru google… I joined in the month of FEB and took the CELBAN MAY 3. I passed!

Kim was an excellent teacher. During the speaking, everything she told me works, relax and be confident. While in my writing, she taught me to organize my ideas in less than 20 minutes. Kim, you are an angel (as I always say.) … I also told you that I was worried about my listening because i need to get a perfect 10, with your advice,I got a 10. Reading, is the easiest part of the exam because I love to read. 😉 KIM! I will be forever grateful. FYI, i told my friends who will take CELBAN to register CelbanPrep. LoveLove, MA

    • Dear SOL,
      I love your comment. No, there is never a reason to give up. I always say, “If the things you are doing are not getting you to where you want to go: make new choices!” If you have taken the IELTS again and again and are not getting the score then do something different: either in your preparation or by taking another test. And if you have taken the CELBAN and did not get the score then do something different in your preparations. The CELBAN really is easier than the IELTS! But, the required scores are higher. It does take work to master the language, the grammar, and the Canadian culture but with time, dedication and practice anything is possible: even passing the CELBAN!
      All the best on your journey to becoming a registered nurse in Canada!
