Band 8 IELTS letter sample
How are you doing? I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to visit you for the past month as I’ve been terribly busy with my studies.
I’m due to sit for my exams next week and there is so much for me to prepare. On top of my theory tests, there are practical tests that I will have to take to prove my competency as a dentist before I’m allowed to practice on patients.
My classes will end in three weeks’ time after my finals and I’ll be able to spend some time with you for a couple of days after that. I hope that you haven’t made any arrangements to go out of town during that time. If you are free then I’ll be able to visit you when my internship starts in the first week of March as I wouldn’t be swarmed with work.
I am dying to see you.
Stay safe and healthy
