I just got my CELBAN test result today, I PASSED! S-10, R-10, L-10, W-8. I am really proud of my scores and I have you to thank for that.
I was confident when I took the test because I know that CELBANPrep prepared me for it. I have one thing to share to you so that you can also remind your students about it.
I was excited about the writing task because I know that with all the practices that I did with CELBANPrep, nothing can go wrong. Well, I was wrong!! I was already home when I started to think about the exam, I was happy with my performance until I remembered that I did not sign the incident report! Another thing, I wrote 4 paragraphs instead of 3! The instruction was to write an incident report with 1-3 paragraphs. This haunted me for a week!
What I’m trying to point out here is that students should have presence of mind during the test.
It was good that I learned from you how to mind map so that information is organized [from CELBANPrep Writing Level One]. I also kept in mind your reminder to be conscious of the tenses [CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials]. I think this probably is the reason why I got an 8 in writing.
Thank you Kim and more power! Keep on empowering IENs to achieve our goals.
