CT4 UNSUSPECTING NEWCOMER – โ™ฆ WARNING: Overconfidence can have detrimental effects.

Updated this week

Hi,

Yes I am  and I am from the Philippines. We came here with my family as immigrant last July 26 last year. So, we’re only 1year 3months in Canada. I’ve taken IELTS,CLB but not yet of CELBAN. The last time I took the Ielts was last feb here in Canada. It was too bad because I got a score of 6. I took also one in the Phil last June before we came here in Canada and I got OBS of 6.5 which is higher than the recent one. Is CLBPT and CLB the same? Yes, I took already twice of CLB. The first time I had it was last Sept.17 wherein I had scores of 6,7,7,8 (listening, speaking, reading, writing). The second one was in VCC where my scores were 6,7,8,7. G

Updated 2021

Dear Kim,
Good morning. ..Thank you very much for the reply regarding CELBAN.
I am currently residing in Abudhabi, U.A.E since last 8yrs, working as Registered Nurse in OR, in one the reputed hospitals in U.A.E.
Basically l am from the Southernย  part of India, Kerala. I hold the Canadian PR from 2010.But I stayed there in CA, only for a sum of 2-3 months.Actually Abudhabi is my first stop outside India.

I tried IELTS few times,after having the coaching class in India in 2004.Recently I received an IELTS score of overall 7.0(L-7.5, R-6.5, W-7,S-6.5).Unfortunately for CNO, they need a 7.0 band in speaking.

I will be relocated in March.I successfully completed the CRNE.[Now the NCLEX is required.]ย  For the process of registration completion, l need either IELTS/CELBAN.

I have done the free self assessment for the CELBAN, (R-8 and L-9).So I need further assistance in CELBAN preparation. How can I register myself for the CELBAN prep? Is there any form to be filled out?
I need a positive reply before the offer expires.

Thank you again and expecting a reply as early as possible.

With regards, L

300โ™ฅ Because the CELBAN listening benchmark is just so high… I am not 100% confident that I will pass

Updates 2021

Hello Kim,
I’m doing good, thanks for thinking about me. I am a quite relieved that the exam is over, but still I’m a bit uneasy whenever I think about the outcome. I am not 100% confident that I will pass it because the listening benchmark is just so high; although I did the best I can, I am not sure if my mark could reach it. Almost all of the other examinees’ย  concerns were about the listening section, all rest of the test were just fine. So still, the agony of waiting is where I am currently in for the meantime. I am trying not to be so pessimistic because I know I did my best, and I think I worked quite hard to prepare for it. Thank you for the lessons that I learned from Celbanprep. Honestly, it helped me a lot on my writing and speaking, and it gave me such enlightenment about what celban exam was like. On top of that, the motivation and encouragement that you gave every now and then was really of big help; they really boosted my confidence. I’m still holding that hope that I could pass the Celban exam. And if not, I will not lose courage to try it again, because if others can make it, I know I also can if accompanied by hard work. I’ll let you know about the results maybe after 3 weeks? I hope I would be telling a good news by that time. Still keeping my fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sincerely,
D
