Dalia had seen that a lot of students are getting better TOEFL scores from Michael’s website. Having commented that she had repeated the TOEFL many times and consequently all her scores were very low, Dalia made the choice to subscribe to Michael’s website: “The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” Dalia said she needed to score at least 110 to continue her postgraduate training in Surgery.
Dalia’s introductory comments to Michael were as follows:
I’m a doing postgraduate training in Surgery. I’m applying for the residency programs in US. So I need a score up to 110. Sadly, the highest score I got on Toefl is 93. Whenever I took the test the one section will go down and another will go up. The highest score I got in each section is R: 23, L: 24, S: 22, and W: 24. Now, I’m totally confused how to get out of this. Hope to hear from you soon.
Formerly, Dalia held a TOEFL score of 93 with R: 23, L: 24, S: 22, and W: 24. But after three months in Michael’s course, Dalia held a new TOEFL score of 110 with R: 29, L: 27, S: 26, and W: 28!
