IELTS Writing Tips General

The tips IELTS writing exam are usually separated into Task 1 or Task 2. This is because each task is unique and requires you to use specific techniques to write strong responses. However, this tip focuses on some general advice that will help you avoid losing marks.

In the IELTS test, markers award you points depending on how well you answer the question, and how smoothly you organize your response, and the level and accuracy of your English,.

However, you can also lose points. Markers will give you a penalty if:

#1. You don’t write enough words.
You need to write 150 words for Task 1 and 250 for Task 2. If you write less than that, you will lose points. You should aim to write a little more than the word count to be safe (e.g. 160 -180 words for task 1).

#2.Your handwriting is messy.
If the examiner has difficulty reading your handwriting, your band score can be seriously affected.

#3. You memorize an answer.
If you try to memorize an answer word for word, you will do poorly on the test. A memorized answer is easy to recognize because it will not answer the question correctly. You might even get a 0 band score.

#4. You only answer part of the question.
For example, if a Task 2 question asks you to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of an issue, but you only write about the advantages, you will not be able to score higher than band score 5.

So, what should you do to make sure you avoid these penalties?

First, you should do a lot of writing practice. It is best to use the official IELTS writing paper so that you can learn to judge the length of your writing.

You should also work on your handwriting skills. Under time pressure, you writing may become messy and difficult to read. The best way to avoid this is to practice writing with a time limit. You will get used to writing quickly and neatly.

Finally, read the questions carefully and make sure your answer each part. Don’t try to memorize answers or write only about a point you feel comfortable discussing.

This advice should help you avoid getting any penalties so you can achieve the highest score possible. Good luck and remember to ask if you have any question about improving your IELTS band score.
