This is the only IELTS course out there that deconstructs the entire IELTS exam (both Academic and General Training), and teaches you in a smart way.

This will save you about 80% of irrelevant information that you otherwise end up consuming from books and tuition centres.

How much relief it is for you that someone is finally telling you that practicing more is not the solution?

Finally, you can only study what’s relevant, learn smart techniques, score high, and within this year board the flight to your dream university or to your dream country as a Permanent Resident.


When I asked my readers, "what is the biggest hurdle they are facing in getting their PR or university admissions?"

Overwhelmingly, the response was need 7+ or 8+ in IELTS“.

I have found IELTS to be the easiest English test out there.

A lot of people live in a reality where they think it is normal to keep giving IELTS again and again.

They think it is normal to waste $300+ every time they sit for an IELTS exam.

One reader of mine emailed me that he will be giving his 8th IELTS attempt next month. What tips I have for him?

I asked him, “why don’t you train well first and aim to get high score in just 1 attempt?”

He replied that all the people he knows also give 2-3 attempts on average.

If this is your reality as well, then it’s time to change it.

In your new reality, you will always focus on training the right way first, before you step in any battlefield.

You will not waste money and years trying to study IELTS again and again, and giving re-takes.

All the people I know who are doing great in life, don’t complain about hardships of life.

Instead, they focus on first training well, and then achieving it all.

Using Ultimate Guide To Hacking IELTS, hundreds of students at AustraliaYours have been able to score their target scores in the past 2 years. Dozens of them are already in their dream countries.



  • Achieved 7 A grades in my A-Levels (high school) where the average student used to only study 3-4 subjects

  • Graduated with a Double Major – Engineering & Business – from National University of Singapore (Asia’s #1 ranked university)

  • Trained 1500+ employees and officials from 25+ countries

  • Scored 8.5 in IELTS in first attempt, and got my Australian PR myself without wasting $2000+ on hiring migration agent

  • Run 2 large blogs with 100,000+ readers from 110 countries

  • Founded AustraliaYours to help my Asian community make a great life in Australia. Today, it is the largest career blog in Australia, exclusive for the Asian community.

  • Launched Ultimate Guide To Hacking IELTS in late 2017 to my readers. Since then, it has been used by 1500+ students to get their PRs and University Admissions in Australia, Canada, and UK.



All the material on the IELTS you find elsewhere are either 200+ page books that are written to teach you English language basics, or YouTube videos summarising those books.

No one takes the pain to deconstruct the entire IELTS from scratch and reassemble it to make it learnable in a smart way.

I know because I read through everything on the internet when I was preparing for my IELTS.

When I first started practicing for IELTS, I downloaded the same books that you would download if you google or ask people on facebook groups. I felt like killing myself trying to sit through the agony of reading them.

It was only after reading through several of them, watching every video out there, and going through 2 dozens of practice tests, that I started seeing the patterns in IELTS. I started developing smart techniques to solve questions.

Within a week, my score went from mid-6s to high-8s.

Over the next year, I found myself helping my friends ace their IELTS exams.

Then after starting AustraliaYours, the number one request from readers had been a course on IELTS.

I did not want to do an average job at it, so it took me 6-months to test the material one-on-one on few AustraliaYours readers in the second half of 2017.

By the time it’s reaching you, it is polished, refined, used by 1500+ students, and made to teach you IELTS in a way that you will score high in just ONE attempt.
