Total time duration: 1 hour (approx)

a) Hour glass or traditional intro-main body-conclusion format

b) Strong opinionated views backed by solid justifications

c) Inclusion of examples and instances

d) Grammatical, linguistic and punctuation accuracy

e) Crisp and concise approach

Tips for a good score in TOEFL iBT Writing section:

a) Common mistake

The most common mistake in TOEFL iBT Writing section happens in the first task where students simple start to what they read or heard. Please do not do the same. The aim of the first task in TOEFL iBT exam (writing section) is to analyze your understanding capability. Hence, go deep inside the content provided and explain your understanding. Do not repeat, what is already provided as content of the first task of TOEFL iBT Writing exam.

b) Examples and quotes

In both the write-ups of the TOEFL iBT exam you have the scope to add examples and quotes. However, try not to add quotes until you are very sure about it. Coming to example, state only if they completely align with the given topic. A quote or an example amidst a TOEFL essay just to exhibit your knowledge with no connect to the given topic might really not yield good score.

c) Time management tip

Though the total time span ultimately comes to almost an hour, yet the specific time split of TOEFL iBT essay is – first task (independent task) : 20 minutes and a total of 30 minutes for the next one. However, from the total of 50 minutes of TOEFL iBT Writing exam, do keep around 5 minutes at the end to revise your essay. Every writer tends to find mistake when they revise.
