Bruna PR:30, L:26, S:25, W:24
AUGUST 2019 – GRADUATE SCHOOL.
Bruna is a hard-working student from Brazil with dreams of becoming a Master of Criminology.
She needed to get a total score of 100 on the TOEFL to attend her dream school: Ku Leuven University in Belgium.
But passing the TOEFL wouldn’t just give her the chance to attend her dream school, it would also allow her to be with her boyfriend who lives in Belgium!
Bruna first started studying for the TOEFL in July of 2018 using several courses and textbooks she found online. She studied hard by herself for 3 weeks… But on her first attempt she was only able to get a total score of 88.
Unfortunately, after her first attempt she ran out of time to apply for University. Discouraged, she didn’t see the point in trying again so she gave up on the TOEFL… until her boyfriend encouraged her to start studying again in January of this year. As with many students, their friends, family, and partners encouraged them to keep going, as should you no matter what.
But she just couldn’t keep up with all the studying she had to do on top of her job. So she waited until February to study with her full power once again.
When she started up again in February, she followed Maria Guryeva’s courses. They helped her improve, but when she took the TOEFL a second time her score still fell short of 100. At this point, Bruna was starting to lose hope.
She put heavy focus on her grammar skills because she thought that’s what she needed help with the most. Then she attempted the TOEFL one more time. But the highest she could score was a 94.
She started to feel discouraged again (as you may be feeling) and started to think:
“maybe this path isn’t for me”
more and more often. She stressed about time and wanted to give up.
But, again, her boyfriend wouldn’t let her.
He pushed her to stay strong (as we encourage you to right now) and look for a proven course that could help her succeed. That’s when Bruna found NoteFull!
Searching the site and with our guidance, she picked the course that would finally take her all the way to her dream score AND BEYOND:
NoteFull’s Complete TOEFL Mastery self-study program
“I wouldn’t be able to do the course I wanted if not for NoteFull… This is the only course that really knew the TOEFL… NoteFull knew every kind of TOEFL. Now that the TOEFL was changing, NoteFull knew faster than the others.”
On her previous attempts she focused too much on certain sections of the exam. This time she put equal focus on all of them under our guidance.
On Their Way
Come May 18th, Bruna was able to exceed her goal score by 5 points with a 105!
Her words of encouragement to you and others:
“First of all I would say that IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE! I was pretty sure that all this would never work, and everything went well and on time. Have this knowledge that if you really insist… it will go well. If i had found NoteFull the first time it would have been good the first time. Something that helped me a lot was to memorize the strategies that I learned from NoteFull. This helped me because when I tried to explain I really memorized it.”
Congratulations, Bruna! We’re so glad you didn’t give up. All your hard work paid off, and we can’t wait to see you get your Masters degree.Reading: 30, Listening: 26, Speaking: 25, Writing: 24
