How to Ace IELTS Writing

Soumita S.
25 Mar 0 0

IELTS is the most popular and highest attempted English Proficiency Test required for Studying or Working Abroad.
There are four sections- Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. Although the reading section comes out to be the most complex section, as reported by many students, writing and speaking sometimes can get the scores lower. The biggest challenge is while you practice the area, you get the reading and listening sections graded automatically, but how can you map your preparations for Speaking and Writing and ace in these?
Let's see some easy and practical tips for getting an excellent Writing Test done in this edition.
1) Task -1
This section is simple, but you have to do it wisely.
a) Do not make the sentences repetitive. Use conjunctions and punctuations appropriately because when you are making the comparison, the skill that s being tested is how you summarize graphs with your language prowess.
b) Do not add any inference or conclusion or information that has not been provided in the data. For example, the total number of male students joining Universities between 2000-2005 is twice as high as the number of female students entering universities in the same span. ( terminate here) Do not write something like- This shows that the society still favours the development of men and women have fewer opportunities available( The graph gives statistics and not the reason for the data. So be cautious)
c) Here, the rule of uniformity in sentences is essential. E.g. the sale of Television in January was more than in February( Incorrect) . Correct construction- The sale of Television in January was more than that in February. (You can compare sales figure with sales figure and nor sales figure with month).
d) Try to deduce the data as much as possible. Explain all the figures and all the possible comparisons.
e) Do not Spen more than 15 mins in writing. Use the final 5 minutes in proofreading the essay.

2) Task 2
a) This task ( Agree /Disagree essay) is more important and holds a higher weightage in the band score. So spend time on this to have a great essay. The word limit is a minimum of 250, so make sure you do not write anything less than 270 words.
b) Do not write whether you agree or disagree with the prompt in the beginning. It makes your essay predictive, and the evaluator may lose interest.
c) Give a crisp and interesting introduction. Begin with the side you disagree with and write points favouring that( not more than 3-4 sentences.). Now use contradictory conjunction. However and question the positive attributes you have mentioned.
d) Now, answer the questions with the argument in favour of what you agree with. The flow will be gripping; the reader would wait to read what next, and finally, without even writing, I agree/I disagree. You will be able to generate a hard-hitting conclusion with clarity on which side you prefer.
e) Grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction are the structural pillars of a great essay. It is essential to use words wisely, with proper grammar.
f) It is essential to avoid context about religious, racial or gender sentiments.
Most importantly, practise well and get each of your practice task evaluated. Self-scoring does not work much. And, do not blindly follow the samples; else, your originality would not reflect in the essay.
In my next edition, I Shall be back with Acing Tips on Speaking.
All the best!
