Scoring high in the IELTS Writing module requires a combination of language skills, organization, and understanding of the task.

Here are some tips to help you excel in the IELTS Writing test:

1.      Be familiar with the different task types in both IELTS Writing Task 1 and Task 2. Understand the specific requirements for each task, such as describing a graph, chart, or diagram in Task 1, and presenting an argument or giving an opinion in Task 2.


2.      Practice writing essays and reports within the given time limits. Allocate your time wisely, spending roughly 20 minutes on Task 1 and 40 minutes on Task 2.


3.      Organize your writing with a clear introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. Ensure that your ideas flow logically and coherently.


4.      Elaborate on your ideas with examples, explanations, and relevant details. Support your arguments with evidence, and provide a well-rounded response.


5.      To enhance your sentence variety, it’s essential to practice incorporating various sentence types. While the compound-complex sentence may pose a challenge, achieving a well-balanced mix of simple, compound, and complex sentences can significantly enhance your writing. The key lies in diversifying both sentence length and structure to create a more natural flow. By combining and restructuring the sentences, you create a more engaging and cohesive narrative while maintaining clarity and coherence.


Initially, individuals often consume excessive amounts of sugary beverages. It’s detrimental to their well-being, as it can contribute to addictive patterns and increased sedentary behaviour, eventually leading to weight-related issues.


6.      In IELTS writing, the task involves composing an essay with a focus on employing “academic” language. Therefore, the objective is to maintain a level of formality and precision. It is advised to refrain from utilizing vague expressions such as “really,” “so,” “a lot,” “very,” and similar terms, opting instead for more precise and formal language to convey ideas effectively.


Very good: top-notch, splendid, terrific, excellent, magnificent, fabulous, outstanding, etc

Very bad: horrible, terrible, outrageous, distressing, awful, etc


7.      Do not use contractions in Academic Writing. Contractions are a combination of two words, where one or more letters are omitted, and an apostrophe is used to indicate the missing letters. They are commonly used in informal writing and speech.

·         I’m (I am)

·         They’re (They are)

·         He’s (He is)

·         She’s (She is)

·         It’s (It is)

·         We’re (We are)

·         You’re (You are)

·         Can’t (Cannot)

·         Won’t (Will not)

·         Don’t (Do not)


8.      Understanding the distinction between a simple and a complex sentence is crucial. While you don’t necessarily have to be familiar with the terminology, it’s vital to construct complete sentences. Proficiency in recognizing sentence types helps steer clear of common writing errors such as sentence fragments, run-on sentences, and comma splices.

9.      Leave some time at the end of each task to review and revise your work. Check for errors, clarity, and coherence. Ensure that your writing is easy to understand.


10.  Regular reading can expose you to a variety of writing styles, vocabulary, and sentence structures. This can improve your overall language proficiency.
