The Goals

I remember when I arrived here, Jogjakarta, on October 9. It means I have been here for one month. I will say time indeed flies so fast. One month is as if like one day hehe… At the beginning of the program we took pre-IELTS test. After two-week wait, I was contented for my IELTS prediction test result. Alhamdulillah, I was not bad. I thought my score would be awful since I didn’t study at all and never opened my IELTS materials lately. I got 6 overall band score with which the lowest band was the listening section. At least, that result will be my measured standard on how many improvements I should make further and which part I should work on more.
Ok, I am trying to evaluate what I have gotten here. I veritably do not get what I expect here for this one month. It might be because I have learned English in my undergraduate study so English Academic Purpose (EAP) seems like repeated lessons for me. It is quite exhausting and a bit boring. However, I won’t say it is wasting time because I can recall the lesson back. I just think it will retard everything.  I am supposed to get the IELTS test on December 20 to pursue the February or March 2015 intake in Australia, but the problem is IELTS program will be conducted after 8-week EAP program which is on mid December. Hence, if I take the test on December 20, I will just have very little time to study or prepare for the test and I am not sure about it. I need very well-prepared study.
Contrarily, if I take the IELTS test on January 31 2015, I will have relatively long time preparation, yet I will not have the opportunity to enter the February or March 2015 intake. Therefore, I should wait for the July 2015 intake. It is not a big concern whether I will study on March or July 2015 in Australia or even in September/October in UK. I just don’t want to waste any precious time. The most important thing right now is my IELTS score. If the required IELTS score is on my hand, I can absolutely process my application immediately in whatever universities to get the Letter of Acceptance (LoA).
In short, I am here to gain those goals, the IELTS Score and the LoA. Thus, Allah, help me to achieve them well and to endure my days here in Your pleasure and blessing. I should focus on these things first then take the next step. I am absolutely grateful for being here since it is a scarce opportunity for many people.

And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]
(QS. Al Baqarah: 45)
