IELTS Writing Exam Tips
Don’t spend more than 20 mins on task 1. Keep checking the time so you don’t make this mistake. You need 40 mins for task 2.
Always write over 150 words for task 1 and over 250 words for task 2.
Don’t count the number of words, count the lines and estimate your word count. Use the official IELTS writing answer sheet properly.
You can plan your essay on the question paper. No extra paper is given for planning. The examiner will not look at your planning, only at your essay.
Always write a clear overview for task 1 academic. For GT task 1, make sure you cover all points requested in your letter.
Always write your conclusion for task 2. Never miss it out.
Always organise your writing for both tasks into body paragraphs.
Check your spelling. You can use either American or British spelling.
Keep all information focused and relevant. More does not mean better.
If you run out of paper, put up your hand and you can get more. Do not remove any paper from the exam room.
