if someone stuck at IELTS band score 6 Is This You?

You’ll find out what you need to change if this is your situation.
What is this student doing wrong?

She is trying to study alone, with a textbook and is trying to memorize things to prepare for IELTS just like she studied in her home country growing up. This doesn’t work when it comes to a language exam like IELTS. The IELTS requires spontaneity so memorization doesn’t help very much.
She makes pages of lists of sentences and words by herself. She doesn’t interact with anyone else or any other material or input.
She reads example essays and copies them. She doesn’t spend much time writing her own essays and using IELTS writing strategies.
She refuses to admit that her way of studying isn’t working. She has been stuck at a 5.5 or 6 for three years.
