4 expert tips to boost your score in IELTS Writing test

Want to improve your IELTS Writing score? Here are 4 expert tips to help you in your preparation for the test.

Read carefully and take notes

Before you start writing, make sure you take a few moments to carefully read the question. Once you understand the question, you can start preparing your answers.

It’s time to write

Once you have chosen your ideas, it is time to start writing. To keep your answers well organized, you must write in paragraphs. Be sure you do not write in bullet points or in point form.

Manage your time

Remember that you have a total of 60 minutes for the Writing test, so be sure to plan accordingly. Most IELTS test takers spend approximately 20 minutes on Task 1 and 40 minutes on Task 2. Leave some time at the end to quickly review your answers and make any necessary changes.

Use cohesive devices

Cohesive devices, sometimes called linking words, are words or phrases that show the relationship between paragraphs or sections of a text or speech. There are these very useful and important words in English called cohesive devices that help keep our writing organized. Cohesive devices are words like ‘For example’, ‘In conclusion’, ‘however’ and ‘moreover’.Be sure to use these words to connect your ideas and help your reader follow your writing.
