Best tips for IELTS Writing section

“The writing section is about the ability to encode thoughts and concepts into written form,” said Sekhar. Here are quick tips that can help you qualify the IELTS.


Time is decidedly limited in IELTS exam hall. So, using time wisely is essential. For that, a student must read the questions very carefully and plan the essay after thorough brainstorming. One should not spend more than 15 mins on task 1, and 45 mins on task 2.


Proper planning is extremely crucial to perform well in the exam. Hence writing down examples in terms of bullet points is crucial. Making this a habit can help students retain facts in their mind for a long period of time. As a result, they tend to recall better while writing the exam.


Accuracy is the key to score well in the exam. Thus, it is important to check the write up for spelling, grammar and other punctuation errors.

Word count

Use of clear structures is extremely crucial such as ‘firstly’, ‘secondly’, ‘on the other hand’, ‘for example’, ‘to sum up’, ‘for instance’, ‘to conclude with’, ‘in conclusion’, etc.


Use of clear examples and signify sentences using - for instance, for example, etc.

Use examples

Something you read, a friend’s experience or your own, examples from another country or your own country for best results.


It is imperative for a student to ensure that all words are correctly spelt. No one would want to lose unnecessary marks for poor spellings.


The best way to assess the quality of any write -up, is self-review. It is suggested that students read their essays to themselves. Doing this gives them a better understanding of how much sense do their essays make, and if there is a need to modify facts or add some more details.


Proofreading is like a ‘final check’. It ensures that no errors from major to minor ones are made. Overall, it improves one’s accuracy, as this is one of the most crucial guidelines for those aiming to score band 7 or above.
