Thanks for the welcome message [and for the 7 Day FREE Trial of CELBANPrep]. I’d like to ask if its possible to take celban test and pass first prior to NNAS application. I’m not pretty confident to pass the english test and registering for NNAS is very expensive and it has an expiration. Financial resources is very limited as well. Please advise.
This is a great question.
From my perspective, having worked with hundreds of IENs over the ten years I was teaching, my advice was to take the exam first.
What often happens is people register with NNAS, then they have one year to submit the required score. Some people can not obtain that in the amount of time, and the added stress decreases their scores. Then they have to pay an additional fee.
So, yes, from my experience: take your time. Take the exam first. See how you do. They will send you your weaknesses so you will know where you have to improve, if you do not get an acceptable score the first time around.
When you know your ability to write within the time limit, with very few errors, and can obtain a 10 in listening: then you are ready to go for a second round – if you have to take it again.
I am not a person who works well under pressure. I would rather be prepared. That is what I did with my nurses. When you see their assignments on the forums – with your FREE 7 Day CELBANPrep Trial – you will see I pushed them hard. They learned to turn their weaknesses into strengths and they learned shills that helped them throughout the process and throughout their careers.
Your first step was reaching out to me; for that I know you are on a good path!
