CT4 TRAPPED IEN – ☀️ I took celban twice and I didn’t get expected score

Updated this week

Hello Kim,

I would like to prepare for celban with you. I would like to let you know that I took celban twice and I didn’t get expected score. Very first time I was with you.

First result: L-8, R-9, W-7, S-7

Second result: L-10, R-10, W-6, S-6

Naturally, I won’t go for my third trial without your permission.  Please enroll me with you. Dosen’t matter, I will work for some extra hours. But I would pay you happily. And, I am sure that with your valuable guidence, I will definately pass this test. I am ready to work hard and also will improve my mistakes according to your guidence.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration,




Dear A,

Hello! And welcome back! It is good to hear from you again. I have been wondering how things have been going for you. I am sorry to hear about your results. If you could combine your scores you can see that you have the potential to pass, but you have to get to the point where you are strong in all of the skills at the same time.

It is an interesting thing to observe that people can get a high score for one skill at one time, and then get a lower score at another time.

It is also an interesting thing to hear your dedication to working hard to strengthen your weaknesses.

There are two kinds of people who come to CELBANPrep:

  • those who practice and

  • those who do not.

Those who practice experience miracles as their brains learn to work quickly in generating ideas, identifying mistakes, and correcting them. These people know that the methods I created using work. And when they complete CELBANPrep and pass the exam they pick up on my motto and find themselves saying,

“Practice. Practice. Practice.”

Then there are those that do not practice, for whatever reason.

Some people do not trust me and my methods.

  1. They wonder why I have them writing about their lives and their interests in CELBANPrep Writing Level One. They want to jump right into Writing in a Nursing Context, or Writing Level Two. They do not understand that I teach some fundamental principles of the English Language and valuable test taking strategies. (See Unsuspecting Newcomer.)
  2. Or, their lives are so very busy. Many IENs come to meThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is cpu-ct4-articles.png balancing exceptionally busy lives: working 12-hour shifts, working two jobs, taking care of family, going to school. Others are taking care of newborns, without the family support they would have back home. (See Busy People ~ Busy Moms and Dads.)
  3. Still others do not have the support of their husbands or other family members. Some are completely exhausted. Many do not have time for themselves. (See Busy People ~ Busy Moms and Dads.)
  4. Still others battle with depression and low self-worth, having failed exams. The impact on how they feel about themselves and how they feel about their dreams fading from before them is crushing. They do not have the energy or motivation to get back on track and work towards their dreams. (See Disillusioned Dreamer.)

For whatever reason, these people find it hard to find time to practice. Many take the exam without being fully prepared: and fail. Then the negative cycle starts all over again.

So, if what you say is true, that you are, “ready to work hard and also will improve [your] mistakes according to [my] guidence.” Then you “will definately pass this test.”

If you get a quality coach/tutor/trainer that applies the CELBANPrep Method for your writing, you will pass both writing and speaking because the methods I created work!

I am looking forward, A, to the day you passed. I know that when that day comes you will advocate to other IENs how important it is to work hard, find the time to practice, and to trust my methods.
