Where We’ve Been

Coronavirus worries have limited our journeys in the physical world, but we have been very busy nevertheless. 

OET Knowledge Badge – We’re OET Ready

This month we obtained our knowledge badge in OET, awarded by the Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment Trust (CBLA).

This month we focused on how the IELTS test is marked. Our first blog post explains the various marking criteria that are used to mark your test – especially for the Writing and Speaking sections. 

Our second post helps you to convert your score out of 40 in Listening and Reading into a band score.

We also updated you on the latest happenings in the world of OET and IELTS. The news included an update on the UK’s new points-based immigration system and the ongoing impact of the coronavirus.

Finally, we curated a new set of articles – all of which cover topics common to the IELTS and OET tests. The articles will provide you with vocabulary and ideas you can use on test day.


Keep your eyes peeled for the first-ever issue of our newsletter, which will be published at the beginning of March.
