  • If a student is able to acquire a guaranteed score band before 10 weeks of study, the school will allow him to attend regular optional classes provided in the morning and in the evening. But counseling should be done before attending other classes.

IELTS Guarantee Course Policies

 

Within the period of 10 weeks:

  1. No single count of violation on the school general rules;
  2. No single count of absences from regular special classes (AM/PM) and mock and official tests;

(Sick absences:  If the attendance rate is below 95% due to sickness checked by hospital doctors, NOT the school nurse, the school is not liable to guarantee a score.)

 

  1. Another 10 weeks of IELTS Guarantee course tuition fee is covered by the school if there are fewer than 2 counts of decrease in the mock tests. The decrease in the score is based on the most recent test taken;

 

  1. 3 counts of decrease in the mock tests eliminate all benefits of IELTS Guarantee course; and
  2. After taking an official IELTS test and a student is unable to acquire a guaranteed score for the remaining two weeks; if he/she opts to extend his/her study, he/she is required to take an official test every month. The student has to pay for the fees incurred due to the extension.

 

* If a student changes to another course from IELTS Guarantee course, there is no refund of any fee.  When shifting of a course is made, the benefits of IELTS Guarantee course are waived and the general rules and the academic plans of the school are applied.
