APRIL 2018 – PHARMACY.
Ankita P. is a pharmacy graduate from India. After she got her degree in 2008 she took some extra courses to ensure that she could work in America.
By 2010 she had made it to the states and was able to pass her FPGEE on her first try.
Now she needed to pass the TOEFL. But her friends warned her of how tough it was. Not feeling ready to take on the challenge yet, she waited a few years to start her TOEFL journey…
Ankita’s challenge was getting her scores above 20 in each section. In 2015, she decided to start studying for her first TOEFL. She took the test in June and got a total score of 67.
Eager to improve her scores, she signed up for a TOEFL course at a local University. The course helped her bring her speaking score up to a 20. But she was only scoring around 15 in the other 3 sections.
It wasn’t until early 2016 that Ankita stumbled upon NoteFull’s YouTube videos while looking for a solution…
She watched some of the free videos that NoteFull offers and found them incredibly helpful. She was convinced that NoteFull could help her get her dream scores. So, she signed up for our Complete TOEFL Mastery program. She was driven to take her English skills to the next level!
The Complete TOEFL Mastery program taught her useful methods for all 4 sections of the TOEFL. She learned how to boost her word count in her essays for the writing section. She also got better at taking notes while listening to the lectures throughout the test. Overall, the program helped her take her writing score from 15 up to 24!
Ankita was also taking Tutoring Sessions with Mathew and Nayyer during this time. By December of 2016, she was able to pass every section except for the speaking. But with a 24/30, she was very close to getting her dream scores!
“I took a break of 7 to 8 months from studying for the TOEFL, since I needed to pass my FPGEE exam again in April, 2017. When I started to study again, I took tutoring, and I renewed my focus to pass the TOEFL this time around. I was not going to give up!”
On Their Way
On February 10th of 2018, after a 3-year long journey, Ankita finally achieved her dream scores! And after no less than 32 attempts!
She attributes her TOEFL success to 3 main things. The first is the personal feedback she got in her tutoring sessions. She would not have known what to focus on if Mathew and Nayyer hadn’t shown her where her weaknesses were.
The second is that she stopped taking the test every 2 weeks. Her advice to students is not to take the test so often unless they’re very close to getting their dream scores.
Lastly, she achieved her dream speaking score because not one of her responses went over the allowed time.
Moving forward Ankita plans on getting a pharmacy internship in Pennsylvania where she lives. And eventually getting a job at a local pharmacy. Great work, Ankita! You never gave up and persistence paid off!Reading: 23, Listening: 23, Speaking: 26, Writing: 25
