Learn why students fail at the ILI!

Students CAN POSSIBLY fail in different ways:

  • “Absent Failed”

99% of students with more than 4 absences cannot come for the final exam, so they fail !!

  • “Low Final” Failure

Some students (good or bad in English) get a grade at the final exam that is below 60 , so they fail automatically!

  • Regular Failure

Many students have problem with this type of failure. There are many reasons for it:

–          Some students do not have time to study English. They don’t study and they fail. They must make time for English.

–          Some students have time but they do not know how to study and what the teacher wants.

–       Some students think that just studying the dialog and the passage is enough. They do not study other small things or they think that their teacher does not want the other parts of the book from them. Getting negative points for these small parts for a long time can be very bad for students’ class activity.

–          Many students did not work on or learn some things before. For example learning how to make a summary or how to say the dialog in class are very important.

–          Some students think that the teacher fails all students so they will fail, too. So they do not study and fail.

–          Some students say that the teacher is funny and always passes almost all the students. So  they relax and do not study and fail.

–          Some students just do not like English so they do not study and fail.

You are not like these?? Ok what do YOU think? Why do students fail?

    hiii sir.
    here i want to ask u y is it too hard to be top student in ili.
    as u know students average should be more then 95.
    it is something like impossible in basic levels but in high levels should be impossible.
    i think in a class the best one or at least the best one in d term should be known as a top student.
    and y a student should be top for three consecutive terms to get the free ticket for the next term .
    of course these rules were applicable when i was in ili.
    i finished the ili a year ago.
    thank u mr. mofidi i had two terms with u and i learn a lot.
    thanks a million.

      Hi There
      Yes.. I can say it is nearly impossible to be a top student two terms in a row.. This is the systems policy ..lets say “financial anti free ticket policy” 😀
      Thanks for your comments.. see you around

    Hi! I’m ad1 student . I have a problem figuring out the reading completely and because the teacher doesn’t explain the reading I dont’t understand some part of it and there’s no answer in dictionary for some of the sentences can u help me

    • Hossein Mofidi October 8, 2015 at 12:15 - Reply

      Hi Nahal
      Well since you are supposed to have gathered enough vocab and grammar information form the previous terms ago…and the methodology for advanced levels wants the teacher not to explain the reading comprehension passages (maybe they can answer some of your questions on the day you are going to be asked) ,you need to do it on your own. That is the way it is.. By the way you can hardly ever find the meaning of a sentence in a passage by looking it up in a dictionary.. 😉 Good luck

    I believe that some students fail because of reading comprehension part and listening part that have 40 score in final exam so they are important. since ILI don’t work on reading comprehension,can you suggest me a book for reading comprehension? I will be thankful.

    • Hossein Mofidi November 10, 2013 at 05:30 - Reply

      There are books related to ILI exams available at ILI bookstore..Go there and ask the lady for them!

    Hi Mr.Modid
    well , you know some students have a lot of stress when they come to say the dialog or especially reading .
    Maybe they study really hard but the stress stops them to be good and successful .
    I thinks this is the most important thing that they can’t be the best.
    Finally they fail for their stress .
    Thanks for your good website .

    these reasons are compeletly true but the other thing that i believe is that teachers should give grade as well as they can and they must give score that the student is really deserving no more no less like you Mr. mofidi.i was your student and in ILI I’ve never seen a teacher like you give a score calculated.some teachers think the grade is a part of themselves and they don’t want to give it and maybe for this reason some students fail…

    i think the atmosphere of classes in ILI is not like a party , teachers do not complement students and no flirtatious banter .teachers fail students cause they want to draw a salary from ILT .this is the rule in ILI and the other reason is books cause the books are not good fun . i dont wanna challenge the conservative atmosphere of ILI But it’s good to start a movement on this website and make a history and make this website the focal point of movement . what’s your idea mr mofidi?

    • Hossein Mofidi January 13, 2012 at 03:26 - Reply

      Logically speaking,at private institutes ,teachers are indirectly advised to be be sometimes abit too lenient toward the students regarding passing or failing them because business is their priority! but the ILI(generally) is not like this yet!

    • Mostafa December 2, 2012 at 13:14 - Reply

      I don’t know much about other institutes and how things work there, so I don’t judge. But honestly speaking, this is by no means the case in the ILI. I sometimes even pass those who have not earned it, just believing that next level will do the job! And I know that if not very the same, it’s almost the same with the other teachers…

    I think some students are not intelligent enough(at least in English)and although they study normaly,like others but they fail,the only solution for these students is to study much more than others.

    think that the teacher fails all students so they will fail, too.I Study too much But the teacher Fail me because the teacher is very strict
