Here's How You Can Increase Your Band Score On The Writing Section

The International English Language Testing System is a standardized English proficiency test that assesses English Language skills in the areas of Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP- Australia and University of Cambridge ESOL EXAMINATIONS.
IELTS has two Modules - Academic and General Training. The Academic Module is required to be given by students who plan to study at Undergraduate or Postgraduate levels. While, the General Training Module is generally a prerequisite for candidates who wish to pursue their vocational studies or for those who wish to migrate to an English speaking country.

Academic & General Writing Module

The Writing sections on the Academic & General Module have two essay writing tasks. You will be given 1 hour to complete both essays. In the task 1 of this Module, candidates will be presented with a graph, table, chart or diagram and will assess on their ability to compare data or describe the stages of a process.

In task 1 of the General Module, candidates are required to write a letter explaining a situation or a problem. They will be assessed on their ability to engage in personal correspondence, while expressing needs or requesting for assistance on a particular issue.

Task 2 of the Academic & General Writing Module presents test takers with a point of view and evaluates them on their ability to challenge ideas and present solutions, while justifying an opinion for the same.


  • Do not write below the word count, aim to write 150 words in task 1 and 250 words in task 2
  • Since the IELTS is a paper based test, ensure that you write clearly, the examiner should be able to understand what you have written
  • Know what each task requires of you
  • Always stay on topic

  • Be clear when you organise your ideas, link your paragraphs together with appropriate sentences
  • Do not write your essays in bullet point, you will be marked less
  • Avoid using repetitive words
  • Pay attention to your grammar, spellings and vocabulary
  • Avoid using informal language, you will be assessed on your appropriate writing style
  • Ensure that you have time after to check your essays, this way you can correct errors that you have made
