Born out of a shared passion for education and empowerment, Edvantage has been making strides in its mission to prepare Kuwait’s youth for the global stage. The local startup’s most recent initiative, the IELTS Mock Exam Experience, held in collaboration with AU on July 22, 2023, stands as a testament to this commitment. The event’s results highlighted a pressing need. With an average score of 3.8 out of 9, the results highlighted the necessity of focused preparation and guidance. In 2022, Kuwait’s average IELTS score was 5.5, lagging behind the global average of 6.3.
The IELTS Mock Exam Experience aims to provide students with an authentic exposure to the IELTs, a key standardized test that many international institutions require for admissions. By simulating an exam environment, the initiative aims to alleviate students’ test anxieties and identify their areas for improvement. Alongside personalized feedback, participants receive one-on-one post exam consultations and a select group benefit from a comprehensive 2-week IELTS preparatory course. These efforts underline the program’s commitment to helping students succeed.
Hussain Al Haddad, Manager of Student Affairs at AU, said: “Our collaboration with Edvantage is not just about mock exams. It’s about a collective commitment to Kuwait’s future, ensuring that the youth have the skills, confidence, and opportunities they need to excel in higher education and beyond. We look forward to more fruitful collaborations with Edvantage in the future.” Yousef Al Jamili, Managing Director at Edvantage, echoed this sentiment: “Our vision at Edvantage is not just to help students pass exams. We stand by them every step of the way – from standardized tests, profile-building, university applications, to further professional development as they navigate their future career paths.”
